AVIRIS-NG (Airborne Visible and Infrared Imaging Spectrometer-Next Generation)

Friday, September 16, 2016

The next generation Airborne Visible and Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS-ng) has been collecting data for the California Methane Survey.  There have been flights over targets in the Southern California region and the San Joaquin Valley.   A real time detection algorithm has been deployed on the flight computer for identifying the concentration of methane plumes.   The flights will continue in CA through October 12, at which point the AVIRIS-ng and the King Air will deploy to New Orleans for flights on the gulf coast with UAVSAR and the ASO.
