HyperScout team Remote sensing

Remote sensing is the challenging world that includes a broad range of techniques for the purpose of observing an object or a phenomena without having physical contact with it. The applications cosine likes to address vary from observing the earth, its atmosphere, climatology, meteorology and oceanography, to planetary research for which the track records of cosine  already includes suites of instruments to observe planets in our solar system.

cosine can serve you with knowledge comprising many techniques like altimetry, spectrometry, radiometry, multi spectral, stereo and high resolution imaging. We are able to provide you either with optical instrumentation and technologies already developed, or with completely new ones specifically developed for your application.

SPACE

Our expert team Remote sensing aims to provide compact and smart solutions for accurate measurements from a distance. We aim for cost-efficient solutions with strength in numbers.

With a proven track record in space instruments, we developed HyperScout, a small high performance hyperspectral imager for CubeSats. We aim for a constellation of small instruments, rather than one large instrument.

AIRBORNE

Our compact and light weight space instruments have also found their way closer to earth. Modified versions of our space instruments can easily be used underneath planes, UAV and drones providing an even higher spatial resolution (cm’s) for more local applications. It is even possible to combine space and local data when necessary.

Applications

ALGEA DETECTION

HyperScout data can be exploited to monitor crop water requirements. The image shows an agricultural field in Saudi Arabia, where the rainfall is not enough to be used to water the crops. With satellite data farmers can better manage water for irrigation—a quickly diminishing resource in the desert environment.

FLOOD DELINEATION

An example of floods seen in the Mississippi region in early 2016. HyperScout can monitor how flooded areas develop over time, with a high temporal resolution.

VEGETATION HEALTH

HyperScout can be used for monitoring indicators of vegetation condition over wide geographic areas, which is a prerequisite for environmental decision-making.

CHANGE DETECTION

Change detection can be used for a variety of applications from water and soil pollution to deforestation. For example the monitoring of water basins to assess the level of desertification. The data processing of HyperScout allows the analysis to be performed onboard. Information is only downlinked if an anomaly is detected, allowing HyperScout to be used for early warning.
