SOC710-GX Airborne Hyperspectral Imager

The SOC710-GX® hyperspectral imager is specifically designed for ease of installation in a UAV or small aircraft. The compact system delivers real-time, research-grade results covering the 400 – 1000 nanometer wavelength range with a 640 pixel-wide swath.

The ideal imager for applications in precision agriculture, forestry, mining or oceanography, the SOC710-GX® offers high performance at an affordable price. The low noise, 12-bit camera used in the system supports rapid framing, wide dynamic range, high quantum efficiency and high resolution.

At 20 cm. in length and less than 4 lbs, the imager is designed to be compact. A single GigE connection eases integration, and coupled to SOC’s Compact Data-Recorder allows for continuous data collection for over an hour.
