Segment 5: Flying laboratory

Flying Laboratory of Imaging Spectroscopy (FLIS) consists of an airborne carrier and a suite of hyperspectral sensors. Image data could be acquired for selected area of interest by full set of sensors simultaneously as well as by single sensor.

The airborne carrier is a Cessna 208B Grand Caravan with two hatches for imaging RS instruments. The suite of airborne imaging spectroradiometers (hyperspectral system) consist of three sensors produced by the Canadian company ITRES Research Limited (CASI1500, SASI600, TASI600). Basic technical specifications of the FLIS hyperspectral systems are shown in Table. Aircraft is equipped by additional systems which are necessary for top quality data acquisition and processing (e.g. gyrostabilized mount, navigation system)

FLIS is standardly equipped by following sensors:
