Headwall BVBA, Belgium and geo-konzept of Germany announced the formation of a Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe (CHRSE). The Headwall CHRSE will be located at geo-konzept’s headquarters in Adelschlag, Germany. The new centre will support the implementation and utilization of hyperspectral imaging technology combined with other sensor technology such as LiDAR and high-precision GPS focusing on agriculture, mining, environmental monitoring and infrastructure inspection applications. The facility features large areas for unmanned drone flights and certified unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) pilots available to test and demonstrate hyperspectral imaging technology in application-specific environments and to train the next generation of UAV operators. The centre also offers indoor meeting areas to develop applications together with researchers and users and to train data analysts utilizing hyperspectral imaging technology to come to better, fact-based decisions to manage their applications.
