Calgary, September 2, 2011 – ITRES is pleased to announce the recent delivery of another combined hyperspectral VNIR-SWIR imaging system, this time to CEKE Spatial Info-Tech Co. Ltd. of Beijing, China.

The delivery of high-performance CASI-1500 and SASI-600 airborne hyperspectral imaging systems to CEKE Spatial Info-Tech Co. Ltd. was formally completed in July with the conclusion of operations, processing, and calibrations training at the customer’s facilities in Beijing.


Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager


Shortwave Infrared Airborne Spectrographic Imager

1500 Pixel VNIR Pushbroom Imager (Lidar-ready)
380-1050nm Spectral Coverage
Up to 288 Programmable Channels
40 degree Field of View
Pixel resolutions <30 cm to 5 m
600 Pixel SWIR Pushbroom Imager (Lidar-ready)
950-2450nm Spectral Coverage
100 Spectral Channels
40 degree Field of View
Pixel resolutions <1m up to 3.5m
Diffraction-limited optics with optical spot size < 1pixel

The delivery included a POS AV 410 precision GPS/IMU, racking system, ITRES’ precision geocorrection processing suite, and VNIR + SWIR hyperspectral sensor calibration system complete with SpaRCal (Spectral and Radiometric Calibration) software. Performing their own sensor calibrations will provide CEKE with greater control over the long-term performance of their imagers, as well as minimize disruption to their wide-ranging environmental mapping projects.
