SPEKTROP-L is an extension of the SPEKTROP project (financed before by the Innovative Economy Programme), within which several models and a prototype of a hypercpectral imaging were developed and tested. The prototype was intended to be mounted on an aerial vehicle. The application of spectral-imaging systems for remote surveillance, such as from the airplane, is becoming a popular method in environmental research, risk detection and monitoring, spatial planning, economic and social undertakings and in emergency management.
Within the proposed project research work and test flights will be carried out, and ultimately the development of a final prototype of a monitoring system based on imaging-spectral device. No successful effort has been made so far in Poland to develop this type of devices, and across the world there are only a few similar solutions; however, very different in many aspects from the proposed system. An important part of the project will also be an analysis and classification of  hyperspectral data collected.
