Remote Sensing for small Aircraft
Demand for information about the health of our planet Earth has grown exponentially over the years. Remote Sensing is the science of obtaining that information, usually about objects or areas from a distance, mostly from an aircraft or satellites.
Cubert has been leading the way in the Remote Sensing market with their evolving and innovative range of multispectral and hyperspectral sensors. Focusing their efforts on deploying their sensors on Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), this typically involves UAV’s, such as rotary copters, fixed wing aircraft and also manned aircraft.
Demands in Agriculture
Remote Sensing has a wide range of applications in many different fields e.g. Natural resource management; Ocean applications, Coastal applications; Hazard assessment and Precision farming. Precision farming is without doubt the biggest growth area as this is being driving by the global demand for food. This market is expected to grow to $4.8 Billion USD by 2020.
Cuberts product range is ideally suited to serve this market due to their small, lightweight design, and robustness, that gives reliable and repeatable performance. This makes them the perfect sensor for any RPAS platform, not only in the air but also on the ground with farmers and researchers turning to Automated Steering Systems for ground based measurements.
Remote Sensing in conjunction with Cuberts sensors will allows researchers to cover a fast amount of inaccessible territory rapidly and precisely.
