BaySpec Introduces Ultra-Miniaturized Hyperspectral Imager

September 29, 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — San Jose, CA — BaySpec, Inc., a leading provider of miniaturized spectral engines, introduces the OCI-UAV™, a new ultra-compact version of its award winning OCI-Series Hyperspectral Imagers.

OCI-UAV™ Series Hyperspectral Imager

The OCI-UAV™ hyperspectral camera is designed specifically for use on unmanned aerial vehicles/systems (UAV/UAS), remotely operated vehicles (ROV), or anywhere needed. Without compromising performance in this small form factor, the OCI-UAV™ with miniature single-board-computer acquires VIS-NIR hyperspectral data with continuous spectral and spatial coverage.

Operating the OCI-UAV™ is automatic and requires minimal human set-up. The OCI-UAV™ design features signification reduction in size (camera head only 8 cm x 3 cm x 3 cm with a computer 10 cm x 7.5 cm x 3 cm) and weight (approximately 0.6 lb., ~272 g), and faster data transfer rate (up to 120 fps) with automatic data capturing and processing.
Key Features/Benefits:

• Effortless integration to existing camera-ready systems
• True push-broom (OCI-UAV-1000™) and snapshot (OCI-UAV-2000™) with computer and storage packaged together in an extremely compact package, specifically design for UAV/ROV applications
• Fast frame rate up to 120 fps
• Innovative non-slit design significantly reduces system complexity
• Less dependent on image orthorectification
• Real-time image data preview
• Ready-to-fly UAV system with Mission Planner available

sUAV Applications

Unlike conventional hyperspectral imagers, which rely on intensive software efforts for orthorectification, the
the OCI-UAV-1000™ features innovative “True Push-broom” where the imager can move to scan at random speeds. The OCI-UAV-2000™ is a snapshot multispectral imager that fundamentally eliminating artifacts caused by vibrations in flight. These advancements significantly reduce requirements on UAV/ROV integration.

BaySpec also provides ready-to-fly hyperspectral total solutions. Augmenting the extreme compactness with uncompromised performance, automatic operation and data processing make the OCI-UAV™ a straightforward system for applications, such as: precision agriculture, airborne mini UAV/ROV, remote sensing, ground survey, forest survey, environmental studies, law enforcement, forensics, security and defense, mining and geology, oil and gas exploration, ocean monitoring, among others.
