Airborne Hyper-Spectral Scanning For Advanced Monitoring And Assessment Of Vegetation And Water Properties

Grant number: LE0989062 | Funding period: 2009 - 2009

Completed

Abstract

The proposed infrastructure will give Australian researchers the most advanced capabilities available world-wide in airborne remote sensing of the environment. By combining hyper-spectral scanning, with full wave-form resolving Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), microwave scanning and sythetic aperture RADAR, flown simultaneously on the most cost-efficient and technologically advanced research aircraft, it will be possible to assess and monitor a wide range of parameters not accessible to airborne methods before.
