Products and Applications
Standard products include mosaic hyperspectral data cubes (Level 2 data) – atmospherically corrected, geo-referenced and accurately calibrated data. Quantitative reflectance data is used for vegetation health characterization, chemical composition analysis, as well as accurate spectral matching with source material libraries.
Higher level data products include those based on pre-determined vegetation indices or ratios for water quality and other remote sensing data products, such as aerosol optical depth. With high radiometric accuracy and traceability, HATI can also meet the demand for long-term trend detection for climate data records.
For researchers and scientists, this high volume of accurate data provides highly reliable data streams for urban transformation studies, terrestrial and oceanic ecosystems characterization, and multi-disciplinary, long-term climate research.
For civil and military users, access to this data facilitates more detailed and accurate assessments of land and water areas, cross-calibration with surveillance assets, battle damage, and surface characterization for change detection after natural disasters, all with much more information than a photographic survey.
