Features

More data - more detail

The X20 is extended with a second camera sensor: panchromatic – just one band, high resolution. We use this data to increase the spatial resolution of the spectral camera to 1880 x 1880 pixel, giving incredibly detailed images.


Extra sharp

The extra data provided by the second camera on the ULTRIS X20 Plus allows us to use a technique called pan sharpening or image fusion – a version of which we have developed inhouse – to enhance the images even further. This enables analysis at the leaf level of vegetation even from a UAV, helping to detect diseases and other issues that require action at an early stage.

Each ULTRIS X20 Plus comes with a high standard 95% white reference target, a distance target, and all accessories necessary to immediately start measurements.


Flying high

The level of detail provided by the ULTRIS X20 Plus lends itself particularly to mobile mapping, so UAV applications are the primary beneficiaries. However, it is equally able to be used in the field or the lab, where you benefit from an unrivalled resolution without having to forego the spectral resolution of 164 bands.

Comprehensive

The powerful Utils software takes raw data, reflectance and even radiance and allows hyperspectral videos at up to 8Hz. It allows first analyses on recorded image cubes, as well as directly on the live data stream. Spectral indices such as Hyperspectral NDVI or Chlorophyll Absorption Integral (CAI), customized plug-ins, and even classification solutions can be directly applied in real-time. The dedicated server allows for autonomous operation during drone flights. While retaining a minimal raw data consumption, the exported data, available in ENVI, Tiff or Multitiff, seamlessly integrates with common GIS and mapping software, including pan-sharpening.



Application

Aerial Mapping

X20 Plus was designed for aerial mapping, gathering high resolution hyperspectral images. Even though the X20 plus integrates two camera sensors it is still lightweight (less than 690 g), so together with a mini computer and GPS the payload is less than 1.5 kg, making it suitable for a wide range of drones.


Scientific research

X20 Plus can, of course, also be used on the ground, whether in the field or in the lab. The non-scanning snapshot allows you to capture the complete data cube within a few milliseconds. The X20 Plus is the right choice for anyone who needs both high resolution and ease-of-use.

Compare with ULTRIS5

The camera features data cubes of 290 x 275 pixels and 51 spectral channels from 450 – 850nm, just like the standard version, but the difference is in the vastly increased frame rate, Equipped with a 10 Gigabit Ethernet port, the integrated Sony IMX250 sensor can unleash its full potential and deliver up to 89 fps, while retaining the typical 12bit depth, typically needed for hyperspectral applications.

Despite having a somewhat bigger size than the standard ULTRIS 5, the new 10GigE development is a huge leap forward and opens up many new use cases for hyperspectral video cameras.

Performance on Different Computer Sets

The camera plugs seamlessly into the CUVIS software suite and although it can be used with a regular Gigabit Ethernet port, a port with a greater bandwidth is needed to get higher frame rates.


In our tests, we were able to record and save unprocessed hyperspectral cubes at 76 fps running on a desktop computer with a 10 Gbit/s PCIe network card and around 60 fps using a laptop with a 5 Gbit/s USB-C network dongle. (See the full specs in the following table). Live processing of the 290 x 275 single spectra was done at 33 fps on the desktop computer and with a little over 30 fps on the laptop respectively.
