The field expander doubles the pixel FOV (along and across track) as well as the total FOV of the camera. The field expander is easily mounted onto the camera by the user, and is available for all HySpex models.
Prior to delivery, the camera will be calibrated with the field expander.
Why Field Expander?
The benefits of the field expander is mainly related to cost of the airborne campaign:
- Increasing the field of view increases the ground area covered for a given flight time.
- Air speed can be increased for the same flying altitude.
