UAV Instrumentation

The NERC FSF currently provides a range of high performance UAV mounted multi-spectral and hyper-spectral sensors. These are available through the same application method as our standard Spectrometer systems, though due to the complexities of operation UAV equipment, only to researchers who have / can access pilots with a valid PfCO licence or similar.

By clicking on the links below you will find further information on the sensor, and the UAV system to which it is mounted.

FSF UAV Instrumentation:

  • Headwall Photonics Co-Aligned VNIR-SWIR Sensor with LiDAR
  • SAL Maia S2 Multispectral Sentinel 2 matched camera
  • We offer full complementary UAV ground equipment, including:

  • Calibrated Spectralon reflectance panels (25x25cm)
  • Calibrated Ground Targets
  • Spare battery & power options
  • Safety and Fire equipment
  • All required flight hardware and software
  • Please note, it is the pilot's responsibility to ensure that a suitable risk assessment has been carried out, suitable and applicable permissions are in place, and that flights are undertaken to PfCO guidelines. As with all of our equipment, while it is in your possession, it is your / your institutions responsibility to insure it for all damages.
