The Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for resource technology is developing innovative tools for the raw materials sector. A key component is provided by Telops with remarkable LWIR sensors. Here the Telops Hyper-Cam is used for ore mapping in the skorpion mine in Namibia. Imaging spectroscopy allows for a rapid and safe assessment of the mine face prior and after blasting.

Many minerals display spectral features in the thermal infrared spectral range. Remote hyperspectral imaging allows the mapping of large areas. Here, a geological survey was carried out in an asbestos open-pit mine. We were able to detect the spectral signature of serpentine from a distance of over a hundred of kilometers.

Generate hyperspectral maps with Telops’ Hyper-Cam Airborne Platform.

The full power of the Telops’ Hyper-Cam can be brought in flight using the Hyper-Cam Airborne Platform. High spatial and spectral resolution hypermaps can be readily be obtained for geological surveys, pollution monitoring, and surveillance applications.
