NIR all-in-one camera


Specim AFX17 is an all-in-one NIR hyperspectral imaging solution for spectral ranges from 900 to 1700 nm consisting of a HSI camera, a small and powerful computer and a high-end GNSS/IMU unit in one compact enclosure. The compact unit can easily be exchanged from drone to lab without cabling and the need to dismantle different units.

It is a state-of-the-art solution weighing only 2.4 kg that can be used on multiple drone types  with or without a gimbal. Data is acquired automatically following the waypoints on a flight plan, making the Specim AFX17 easy to operate.

The multiple spectral ROI feature can be used to freely combine and limit the number of spectral ranges in order to change between hyperspectral and multispectral applications. This application oriented feature is widely used to limit data flow or increase frame rates. Fore lens aberrations are fully characterized and increase data accuracy and repeatability.

AFX camera data can easily be compared as spectral ranges are calibrated and repeatable. The Specim designed lens guarantees significantly less smile and keystone. AFX17 uses fast optics with f/number 1.7 enabling the camera to collect more light and faster flights. The high end GNSS/IMU unit provides a full real-time and post-mission position and orientation solution for direct georeferencing.
