Latest ESA Research Leads to Better Cameras for Precision Agriculture

Lars Wecks for Trend in Tech:  A new camera from Cubert, working in collaboration with VITO Remote Sensing and imec, based on research from the European Space Agency, is bringing high-resolution details to precision farming.
Precision farming relies on *hyperspectral imaging to gather additional information about crops for making the best decisions on resource and field management. The ButterflEYES LS from Cubert can now provide these images with in focus details as minute as five centimeters. Also, since it weighs only 400g, it is easily carried by a drone over large and varied land masses.
Hyperspectral imaging can capture visual information in a variety of wavelengths, including near-infrared. Because of this added feature, a hyperspectral camera allows its users to see processes or problems that might otherwise be invisible to in normal imaging.  Full Article:
