Vegetation has light reflection bands and light absorption bands. By looking at the relationship of the light absorption and reflection, plant health, stress, biomass and such can be measured. Our Blue-Green-NIR cameras use blue as the absorption channel and NIR as the reflection channel. These cameras perform quite well and as easy to use. Historically, red was used as the reflection channel because, when sensing vegetation from space, the blue light was scattered more due to Rayleigh light scattering.

We have created a vegetation stress camera that allows you to take one picture and get the visible blue light in the blue channel, visible green light in the green channel and get the near infrared light the red channel. By evaluating the red versus the blue and green channels, you can quickly get information about vegetation as well as minerals, bodies of water, camouflaged object detection and more. Healthy plants have a strong near infrared reflectivity, sometimes called the "Red Edge". Our non-destructive, easy, remote sensing camera allows for quick and accurate analysis. The ratio of the near infrared reflectivity to the visible reflectivity can give you information on the plants health, discern bodies of water, barren land, shrubbery, rainforests, minerals and more. Aerial photographs with our camera can allow farmers to quickly asses the health of their crops spotting disease, sick plants, weeds and other variations.
