MAIA M2 – Multispectral Modular Camera

Overview

MAIA M2 is the modular multispectral camera that the user can customize according to his needs.

Each module has stand-alone capability with external trigger and strobe or free run mode. Several inputs/outputs for external devices interfacing such as trigger, strobe, serial port, USB and two aux port.

MAIA M2 can be equipped with a large portfolio of VIS-NIR bandpass filters.

The camera is based on a double global shutter CMOS sensor with 8/12 bits resolution, automatic exposure with selectable target value. Lenses are factory geometrically calibrated.

 

 

 

Module has very small size and low weight, the lowest values in the market.

Possibility of using the external controller for multi-module management.

Multispectral raw images and parameters are stored in a removable SD card, can be downloaded from USB and are available for pre-processing with MultiCam Stitcher Pro, the MAIA images pre-processing software.

MAIA M2 Custom Bandpass Filters

The following selected filters are available in stock; for other specific bands, we are available to respond to your requests after consulting with our supplier

 

MAIA M2 Pre-selected Bandpass Filters Pair

The MAIA M2 single module can be composed using a pair of available band-pass filters. The choice of the pre-selected filter pairs will be made according to the most widely used multispectral indexes with two single bands, or on the basis of the aim of the multispectral survey.

 

 MAIA M2 combination of modules

The following table shows some combinations of 2 or more MAIA M2 modules, useful to allow the calculation of many of the main multispectral indexes.
