Sensors Operated by ARSF

The page gives a list of past and present sensors operated by ARSF. Click on the name below to get more information about a specific sensor.

The sensors are mounted on the cabin floor over an opening that can be opened/closed during flight. The image below shows the aircraft in flight with the hatch open.

Current Sensors

ARSF currently operate a hyperspectral Specim AISA Fenix, a Leica ALS50-II LiDAR and a Leica RCD105 39 mega-pixel camera. For certain campaigns ARSF will operate the Eagle2 sensor. In mid-2014 the ARSF acquired a Specim Owl thermal instrument - available operationally from 2015 onwards. For comparison on ATM, CASI, Eagle and Hawk sensor swath widths see this figure.

The navigation data that is used in the georeferencing of the various sensor data is collected from either an Applanix system (for pre-2011 data collections) or an IPAS system (for 2011 data onwards). See the ARSF operations navigation systems page for more information.
