Multisensor platform – QUERCUS.6 

 The QUERCUS.6, multispectral camera, was created for HESOFF purpose at the Institute of Aviation, Remote Sensing Division. Camera operates within 6 spectral channels, records data in the wavelength range 460 – 950 nm and enables imaging in selected ranges of electromagnetic radiation. QUERCUS.6 is equipped with an on-board computer with software for calculating remote sensing indicators, GPS and solar sensor. Images with various (colored / spectral) compositions obtained from the camera can be used to monitor: air and water pollution, crops, biodiversity, as well as in archeology and spatial planning.

Technical parameters:

  • Number of lenses: 6
  • Resolution: 2048 x 1088
  • Spectral channels: 2/ 6/ 12
  • Image format: RAW & TIFF
  • Number of images: 61 000
  • Ground pixel (200 m): 6.0 cm
  • Spectral range: 0.46 – 0.95 µm
  • Total weight: 1690 g

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Advantages:

  • Application for long missions
  • Possibility of changing spectral filters
  • Possibility of controling each camera separately
  • Installation on medium UAV, ultralight aircraft, light aircraft
  • Possibility of controlling remotely
  • Counting indicators during the flight
  • Installed IMU / AHRS and GPS receiver
  • Low power consumption

2015: elevation models created from aerial photographs acquired over the surveyed areas

On the two following models, heights of coniferous trees was correctly presented, while in the case of deciduous trees, as a result of the lack of foliage, the aerial photos showed mainly the area under them. Consequently, in the case of the elevation model acquired from the correlation of images, areas covered with deciduous trees represent terrain height.
Elevation models have been used in further research, among others as reference data for indicators determining the health of trees.
