Sequoia at the forefront of ocean color remote sensing, releases impactful new technology!
Hyperspectral backscattering has been identified as a measurement gap in closure and validation studies for planned hyperspectral ocean color sensors, such as NASA's planned Plankton, Aerosols, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) mission. Hyper-bb employs technology similar to existing backscattering sensors used in the ocean optics community, but extends the spectral coverage using continuously varying bandpass technology. Hyper-bb's backscattering measurements with higher spectral coverage complement other currently available instruments measuring hyperspectral optical properties, including absorption, beam attenuation, and radiometry.
The Hyper-bb is a submersible instrument, rated to 600 meters, with internal data storage, and is easily integrated into existing moored and profiling packages. The backscattering measurements collected by the Hyper-bb are highly relevant to ocean color remote sensing and ocean biogeochemistry research.
The Hyper-bb product is expected to be available for order in Q1 2020. For more information, contact Sequoia, firstname.lastname@example.org
