ReSens+ and Applications

ReSens+  is based on direct spectroscopic measurements of chemical and physical  properties of rocks, minerals and individual elements visible at the surface. 

Our automated analysis of these properties is comprehensive and complements the work of geologists,  independent of their level of experience in data analysis. ReSens+ can utilize multi-temporal imagery and incorporate different sensor types. We work with hyperspectral and multispectral images  for a wide range of sensors and sensor platforms.

  • in-house developed, cutting edge hyperspectral and multispectral data processing
  • highly advanced remote chemical and physical surface analysis
  • integration of different satellite and field spectral data by building customized spectral libraries
  • automated multi-stacking and multi-temporal data processing

ReSens+ Space
- Targeted mineral exploration from your desktop

Our next-generation Spaceborne Remote Sensing products are capable to replace cost-­intensive airborne missions. We apply highly advanced in-house developed image processing algorithms to hyperspectral and multispectral satellite data. ReSens+Space provides high resolution and reproducible “chemical vision” of your mineral targets based on customized spectral libraries. Our data products can easily be integrated into your ground exploration program and will boost your results from any exploration campaign.-

ReSens+ MineOps
- Streamline your mining operations

We offer solutions, that generate updated and pixel-precise ore-classification maps of a mine in less than an hour. We work with hand-held, tripod and UAV based measurements as well as integrated systems. Our precise analysis is based on site-specific hyperspectral library data. We analyze and visualize mineral deposits comprehensively over large areas, which allows the profound adjustment of quantitative predictions. That opens the possibility of close to real-time mineral and element/ore-classification & (semi-) quantitative mapping in the diverse and changing mining environment.

ReSens+ Lab
- Work your data

We work with deposit or site-specific libraries. We characterize your targets by their unique spectral features first by scanning and analyzing them in our lab. These “spectral fingerprints” will make a significant difference in all our further applications. If samples are not available, we will assemble a generic library from our vast database, that comes as close to your real conditions as possible. Our ReSens+Lab enhances the results of the any subsequent spectral application in the mining process.

ReSens+ Aero
- Get the maximum out of your aerial campaigns

Expensive and time-consuming aerial campaigns are only as good as their results, so you need to get the most out of the collected data. We apply highly advanced and platform adapted pre-processing and image processing algorithms to your existing valuable hyperspectral and multispectral data. ReSens+Aero provides high resolution and reproducible “chemical vision” of your mineral targets based on customized spectral libraries and can easily be integrated into your ground exploration program.
