Calgary, February 2, 2016 – ITRES is pleased to announce the sale of the first micro-CASI-1920 VNIR imager to the National Research Council of Canada (NRC). NRC’s flight research laboratory in Ottawa will use this new hyperspectral micro imager in support of their on-going multi-disciplinary development of UAV-based applied science applications.
We greatly look forward to seeing how NRC will use the microCASI and the results it will contribute to their research and collaborations with groups ranging from McGill University, law enforcement agencies, wildlife researchers, and security and defense agencies.
The microCASI packs impressive technical performance in a small package, which both rivals that of competing, larger systems and complements our long standing high performance Scientific-Grade line of full-size hyperspectral and broadband imagers.
