IR/UV Line Scanner

Diese Produktinformationen stehen nur in englischer Sprache zur Verfügung.



The IR/UV Line Scanner is a standard sensor for airborne oil spill monitoring. It is capable of visualizing relative oil spill thickness in qualitative terms:

  • no oil
  • thin oil (thickness ≈ > 0.01 micron)
  • thick oil (thickness ≈ 1 micron ... 50 micron)
  • very thick oil (thickness ≈ > 50 micron)

The OPTIMARE IR/UV Line Scanner is characterized by a unique optical design, an excellent maintainability and a broad operating temperature range. The lightweight and ruggedized system is frequently used in conjunction with the Side-Looking Airborne Radar (SLAR).

  • Detection of highly reflective features on the sea surface such as oil spills and biogenic surface films
  • Highly resolved mapping of very thin and thick oil layers on the water surface
  • Basic sensor for automatic creation of thematic maps of the oil spill scene (automated scene analysis)
  • Imaging remote sensor for thermal mapping applications
