A flight trial was conducted recently in Shaanxi Province. Two achievements developed by researchers from the Center of Optical Remote Sensing, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, were tested successful.
One is the infrared hyperspectral spectrometer. It was performed stably in the experiment. With its help, scientists acquired rich air-borne infrared hyperspectral data.
Another is the ground processing system, which was successfully verified in the flight test. Designed functions worked fine as expected, such as obtaining infrared characteristics of ground objects, pollution gas remote sensing and atmospheric parameters measurement.
"Our work provides a good technical reserve for refined aerial remote sensing, environmental monitoring, emergency response and other field applications," said WU Jun, member of the team.
