PrecisionHawk has announced that they will be collaborating with Corning Inc. to include the Corning microHSI 410-SHARK hyper spectral camera with PrecisionHawk’s drone platform. This sensor will offer calibrated, geo-reference hyper-cubes, which provide massive research potential. The companies look to create new spectral libraries of information that apply to agriculture, mining, construction, energy, and the insurance industries.
“Historically, low-altitude data collection using hyperspectral sensors has been very difficult to achieve due to operational complexities,” said Richard Zacaroli, commercial business development manager, Hyperspectral Imaging Products, Corning Incorporated. “Due to the integration between Corning’s revolutionary sensors and PrecisionHawk’s drone and data suite, it’s now possible for novice users to properly and effectively collect high-resolution hyperspectral data.”
