Our remote sensing technologies combines airborne and unmanned platforms with hyperspectral sensors and laser scanner for detailed terrain analysis. We use a Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft and a DJI Matrice 600 Pro drone.

Data processing

The processing of the hyperspectral data is divided into three processing chains. The first one is focused to data from the CASI-1500 and SASI-600 sensors for the VIS-NIR-SWIR spectra, while the second one is dedicated to thermal data from the TASI-600 for the LWIR spectrum. The laser scan data are processed separately.

Sample data

Sample data from airborne sensors. Outputs into which the data is usually processed are available for download. In this form they can be easily used for further analyses with standard software tools.

About us

Welcome to the website of the Aerial Activities Division, which deals mainly with airborne hyperspectral remote sensing, or imaging spectroscopy. The department is a department of the Institute of Space Research of the CAS – CzechGlobe. Within the department, data from hyperspectral sensors and laser scanner are acquired and processed for the needs of the institution and other organisations. Ability to acquire data by four airborne sensors simultaneously is relatively unique even within fame of Europe.
