FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res Spectroradiometer

Overview

The highest-quality spectral data with a new, faster field spectroradiometer system

The FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res spectroradiometer has been designed for faster, more precise spectral data collection in remote sensing applications.


Features

The enhanced spectral resolution offered by the portable, ruggedized, high-resolution spectroradiometer is well suited to geologic applications and other fields of research that require definition of narrow spectral features, especially in the longer wavelengths.

  • Faster spectral collection speed by allowing researchers to measure more targets at more sites in a smaller timeframe.
  • The full-range (350 – 2500 nm) Vis/NIR FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res provides the highest spectral resolution available in a portable, ruggedized field spectroradiometer.
  • An extended wireless range presents new opportunities in research supervision from longer distances.
  • New ruggedized fiber optic cable and a smaller, lighter, yet tougher case make the FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res field ready and highly portable.

The FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res spectrometer has increased signal throughput, improved spectral resolution and vastly improved signal-to-noise ratio over previous ASD field spectrometers. For remote sensing, this means faster spectrum capture in the field with improved spectrum quality. Researchers looking at materials at longer wavelengths—such as carbonates, clays and chlorites—will benefit from a 2X radiometric performance increase in the SWIR 1 and 2 regions. The FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res spectrometer, with an 8 nm resolution, is also ideal for building spectral libraries, since it provides the high spectral resolution spectra required to support current and planned hyperspectral sensors.

Ideal for geologic applications requiring mapping of alteration mineralogy, the FieldSpec 4 Hi-Res spectroradiometer is also suited for hyperspectral image validation and ground truthing.

FieldSpec 4 Wide-Res Spectroradiometer

Overview

Accomplish remote sensing tasks faster, more accurately and with more mobility

Ideally suited for support of multispectral remote sensing studies and analysis of materials with broad spectral features,the FieldSpec 4 Wide-Res spectroradiometer offers dramatically improved speed, performance and portability over previous models.


Features

The full-range (350-2500 nm) remote sensing Vis/NIR spectroradiometer features enhanced capabilities in the SWIR 1 and 2 regions, as well as double the signal-to-noise ratio performance. This allows you to cover twice the ground in half the time without any loss of data quality.

  • A 2x improvement in SWIR 1/SWIR 2 performance means researchers can capture the same quality of spectral data in a quarter of the time.
  • Take the same number of average scans, but enjoy better quality of spectral data.
  • The FieldSpec 4 Wide-Res’ improved signal-to-noise ratio equals more precise spectral data.

A wide-resolution spectroradiometer, the FieldSpec 4 Wide-Res captures spectra with 30 nm resolution, making it the preferred choice for measuring materials with broad spectral features. Remote sensing applications include plant physiology, agronomy and forestry, as well as light energy measurements, photonics, light source studies and multispectral ground truthing.

Built to function in extreme environments, the FieldSpec 4 Wide-Res fiber optic spectrometer has a lighter, smaller case, a convenient backpack travel bag and a ruggedized fiber optic cable that ensures uninterrupted signals during rigorous field applications. An expanded wireless range permits fiber optic spectrometer measurement farther from the instrument controller. The combination of improved portability, rugged construction and faster spectra collection helps researchers move from site to site more quickly to maximize narrow field research windows.
