Plug'n'Play

The BlackBird camera was especially designed for integration with DJI drones from Matrice 200 & 300 series.

Via the Skyport interface all connections are established with a twist of your hand.

Compact Setup

BlackBird is based on a hyperspectral linescanner, but there is no need to move the sensor during image acquisition to get a full hyperspectral data cube. With this feature you can also move to a off-nadir position and take images.

Easy To Use

Thanks to the RGB sensor of the hyperspectral camera, a livestream can be displayed on the remote control during the flight. With this feature you get two images (RGB & HSI) at the same time with the same spatial dimensions.

Intelligent Imaging

Additional pre-processing on camera is possible, as the camera has a build in computing unit. If needed, the desired spectral ranges can also be individually selected, to reduce the amount of data.
