2 and 4 channel sensors for making ground truth measurements for remote sensing studies.
NDVI calculation requires simultaneous measurements of both incident and reflected radiation. The Skye 2- and 4- channel sensors combine these. One sensor has a cosine corrected head which captures both direct and incident light while the other sensor is not cosine corrected to capture light reflected off the surface of interest.
Customers can specify the wavelengths they are interested in (eg red / near infra red)
About the manufacturer
Skye is an employee owned company that has been manufacturing research grade systems and sensors for plant science and commercial horticulture since 1983.
The Company started on the Isle of Skye, Scotland and re-located to Wales in 1986. They manufacture a range of specialist light sensors and plant analysis systems. All Skye light sensors are directly traceable to NPL - Calibration Standards Body of the UK. They have a range of excellent specialised radiation sensors that measure in the specific wavelengths and with a range of outputs. In addition to their standard sensors, they are able to make custom sensors for specialised applications and growth chambers.
