AISA Airborne: aisaEAGLE

VNIR Range 400-970nm

The Specim’s aisaEAGLE is an excellent analytical, detection and mapping tool that provides and exceptional performance in airborne and field use at an affordable price. The sensor has established its ability in a range of commercial, research and public service applications. The applications that aisaEAGLE has been involved in include forestry management, vegetation cultivation, environmental investigations, precision farming, target identification, water assessment and land use planning.

High Stability

The newest aisaEAGLE sensor offers now even higher performance. With it’s temperature stabilized CCD camera, it provides the highest spectral stability and quality in varying operating conditions, both airborne and in the field.
