Headwall BVBA, Belgium and geo-konzept of Germany announced at Agritechnica 2019 the formation of a Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe (CHRSE). Agritechnica is the world’s largest trade fair for agricultural technology and geo-konzept is an Agritechnica exhibitor at Hall 15 / Stand J20.
The Headwall CHRSE will be located at geo-konzept’s headquarters in Adelschlag, Germany. The new center 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 (as shown here in the inspection of railroad infrastructure).
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 center 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.
Headwall is a designer and manufacturer of complete spectral instrumentation solutions for remote sensing, advanced machine vision, and government/defense markets. With a worldwide base of end-user and OEM customers, Headwall enjoys a market leadership position through the design and manufacture of spectral solutions that are customized for application-specific performance.
