UAV-based hyperspectral sensing of dryland vegetation

Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-based hyperspectral remote sensing capabilities developed by the Idaho National Lab and Idaho State University, Boise Center Aerospace Lab, were tested via demonstration flights that explored the influence of altitude on geometric error, image mosaicking, and dryland vegetation classification. The test … (Read More) UAV-based hyperspectral sensing of dryland vegetation

UAV-based hyperspectral remote sensing

BCAL and Idaho National Lab (INL site) are collaborating on developing hyperspectral sensing capabilities on small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Until now, the focus has been to improve the calibration and registration of the UAV-based sensor data and test the … (Read More) UAV-based hyperspectral remote sensing
