Imaging Systems

Tetracam multi-spectral imaging systems are divided into two product families. Systems in our Agricultural Digital Camera or ADC family each consist of a single camera. These are equipped with fixed filters that look at the same green, red and near-infrared wavelengths that Landsat satellite systems have viewed for years. Systems in our Multiple Camera Array or MCA family contain four, six or twelve registered and synchronized cameras. Each camera in the array is able to simultaneously capture a band of radiation specified by the user.

All cameras in both families are lightweight and compact. All permit manual, auto-timed or remotely triggered exposures. All capture images and store them on multi-gigabyte image memory cards. All are able to continuously capture GPS coordinates for geo-tagging images. All are equipped with video out and USB ports. Each system is shipped with Tetracam's PixelWrench2 software for managing and editing images, interpolating GPS coordinates, extracting vegetation indices (such as NDVI), converting images into common file formats and performing other image analytical functions.
