Specim AFX Series Hyperspectral Imaging Cameras
Specim AFX series is an airborne hyperspectral solution based on the successful Specim FX series
The Specim AFX series is an airborne spectral imaging solution based on our successful Specim FX series. It is a compact all-in-one device with an HSI camera, powerful computer, and a high-end GNSS/IMU unit.Weighing only 2.5kg, Specim AFX can be used on multiple drone types – multirotor or fixed-wing, with or without a gimbal.
EASY TO MOUNT AND OPERATE
All-in-one casing means that Specim AFX has minimal cabling, which makes it simple to mount, and the fully automated data acquisition following the mission flight plan allows easy operation.
Spectral imaging allows identifying one material from another simply by measuring the reflectance of light – without needing to take a sample. By mounting a spectral camera on a drone, it can be used for example in looking for contamination and determining the water quality, estimating the fertilising need in agriculture, identifying vegetation species, or studying wildlife population from the air.
HIGH QUALITY IN SMALL SIZE
AFX is based on the FX product family, which is a high-quality hyperspectral camera series. This new product brings the benefits of the FX series to the airborne use. Thanks to F1.7 aperture, Specim AFX uses the available light efficiently. That combined with the image enhancement algorithm results in the high quality of the collected data.

Remote hyperspectral data of overlaid on an aeromagnetic survey map provides a highly characterised visualisation of the surface geology in Virginia City, NV.
Specim airborne systems are ideal for discrete mineral mapping for exploration clients in the mining, oil/gas and geothermal sectors, over large and often remote and inaccessible parts of the globe.
Farming, Forestry and Environment
Hyperspectral Imagery allows for the classification, identification, and detection of vegetation phenomena that relate to a wide range of applications
The high spectral resolution achievable with hyperspectral imagery has long been used for vegetation mapping and species identification. By covering a wider spectral range with more spectral channels at a high spectral resolution, hyperspectral data has surpassed the capabilities of photogrammetry and multispectral digital imagery for all types of classification needs.
