12 Sep Completed the development of a new multispectral camera
CATUAV has completed the development of the PANOPTE multispectral camera In a short time, CATUAV will dispose of a multispectral camera designed for the Argos UAV and oriented to environmental applications: PANOPTE.The development and integration phases finished last weeks and at present the on-ground calibration is in progress. The in-flight testing will be performed very soon. It is expexted that the camera will be operative during October.
PANOPTE will provide images in six spectral bands of 50 and 80 nm bandwidth in the 400-1000 nm spectral range. With this camera, CATUAV will be able to perform thematic studies at spatial and temporal resolution ranges inaccessible by other systems. Due to that the six bands can be configured, the camera can be adapted to each application (see image). Thus, it will be possible to carry out quatitative analysis oriented to hidrology, forestry, agriculture, geology, pollution and waste management.
