Tetracam produces the world's most efficient and most economical multispectral cameras and the software required to interpret what they see. Our products include NDVI mapping cameras that capture and calculate vegetation indices during the mapping mission, camera arrays that can image up to 12 bands of the spectrum from UV to NIR, and multispectral phenocameras that can power up and down automatically, producing processed NDVI image sets. We also provide image processing software in the cameras that makes them smart NDVI cameras that produce results that can be used as soon as the images are extracted. On farms, forests and ranches throughout the world, Tetracam systems monitor subtle changes in the visible, UV, and near-infrared radiation that plants reflect. Growers use this data to spot plants under stress, monitor plant growth and to perform dozens of other functions helpful in managing crops. (refer to our System Application Notes for more information on the basic capabilities of our products).
The same Tetracam imaging systems in use in farmers' fields are also in use daily in the fields of biology, environmental research, surveillance, and infrastructure inspection. To date we have sold nearly one million multispectral and special purpose imaging systems. We continue to work in the background providing smart camera image processing, imaging expertise and camera design services for manufacturers of scientific and monitoring equipment throughout the world.
Tetracam serves an international base of customers ranging in size from individuals to multi-national corporations, and our diverse portfolio of capabilities ranges from clean sheet designs to low cost high volume manufacturing. We look forward to working with you and thank you for taking the time to visit our site and learn more about our Company and our Products.
Smart NDVI cameras are multispectral cameras for precision agriculture that can calculate vegetation indices and create false color NDVI images without the use of an image processing program. Most multispectral NDVI mapping cameras capture raw data and require post processing on a personal computer.
Precision Farming and Forestry need multispectral camera and NDVI camera images to create orthomosaic maps that allow interventions to be optimized. NDVI phenocameras that can perform time lapse photography are best for slow growing flora, while faster growing commercial harvests are best served by airborne NDVI mapping cameras.
