UHD 185 – Firefly

 Easy and reliable imaging spectrometer for UAV

banner uhd185

The Cubert UHD 185 is the lightest version of our revolutionary full frame imaging technology. Thus it combines the precision of hyperspectral cameras with the ease of use of a snapshot camera.
In combination, this camera provides the smartest access to hyperspectral areal images you could ever imagine. With no need of an IMU you will get full hyperspectral cubes in 1/1000 of a second!
Furthermore the preprocessed cubes are transfered to the ground station during flight and you can start to analyze your areal hyperspectral images already on site!

The difference to push broom technology

The UHD 185 uses a unique technology which establishes a fair balance between areal resolution and spectral resolution. The result is an imaging spectrometer with no need for scanning (like push broom technology) or image combination after fast filter shifts. Our technology provides clean hyperspectral images out of the box without any moving artifacts.
During the development of the Firefly we miniaturized our laboratory platform. The weight was reduced from 3 kg to a total weight of 470 g (including camera and optics). This was achieved by the use of lightweight and yet stable materials like aluminum and Kevlar. Due to the abstinence of any moving part, the package provides a light but longtime stable product.
In combination with an industry grade processing unit for the on air data storage and the ground communication, we achieve a ready to fly weight of as low as 840 g.
