CALMIT Hyperspectral Aerial Monitoring Program
Through grants awarded by the National Science Foundation and National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Center for Advanced Land Management Information Technologies (CALMIT), in cooperation with the UNL Department of Electrical Engineering and the UNO Aviation Institute, collectively known as the Nebraska Airborne Remote Sensing Program (NARSP), has developed an aerial remote sensing research platform.
A specially modified Piper Saratoga aircraft is being used as the base platform for deployment of a number of research grade remote sensing instruments.
CALMIT's airborne remote sensing activities are centered around a suite of insturments associated with an AISA Eagle hyperspectral imaging system. This specific program is identified as CALMIT Hyperspectral Aerial Monitoring Program (CHAMP).
