Hyperspectral and Thermal Surveys Across All Seven Continents
Since 1996, ITRES has successfully conducted airborne mapping surveys using our hyperspectral and thermal imaging technologies over every continent. This includes Antarctica’s first airborne hyperspectral survey, conducted in partnership with the British Antarctic Survey and DRDC Suffield.
Sensor clients are our focus — your success is our success –we will not enter into any projects that could be considered to be in direct competition with our existing or future clients. If any request is to be in conflict with an existing sensor client, with your permission, we would be happy to pass on your information to our sensor partners in your part of the world.
Our operational missions serve as system demonstrations as well as an opportunity for our continual development of real world high fidelity imaging systems.
AIRBORNE HYPERSPECTRAL SURVEY PLANNING
The ITRES Operations Group will work closely with you to deliver the hyperspectral or thermal data products you need, when you need them.
We look after all aspects of the project, from mission planning, sensor and aircraft mobilization, airborne data collection, coincident ground data collection, data pre-processing, and analysis.
WE JUST NEED SOME BASIC INFORMATION TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A HYPERSPECTRAL OR THERMAL SURVEY QUOTE:
We just need some basic information to provide you with a hyperspectral of thermal survey quote: Where and when you’d like to collect data; What type of data (hyperspectral, broadband), what spectrum or imager; The desired pixel spatial resolution; Do you need the data in units of reflectance? Whether you’d like us to deliver any analysis-derived products, or just the data.
It’s worthwhile remembering that like all airborne imaging surveys, economies of scale apply. Acquisition mobilization costs (getting the crew, equipment, and aircraft to the field site) are fixed. This means that the larger the total ground area to be imaged is, the lower the per-line kilometer (or line mile) cost will be.
