Abstract

Airborne multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing is a powerful tool for environmental monitoring applications. In this paper we describe a new system (ASPIS) composed by a 4-CCD spectral sensor, a thermal IR camera and a laser altimeter that is mounted on a flexible Sky-Arrow airplane. A test application of the multispectral sensor to estimate durum wheat quality is also presented.
Keywords: airborne remote sensing; CCD; interferential filters; wheat quality; red edge. airborne remote sensing; CCD; interferential filters; wheat quality; red edge.
