GCHIS offers a fully integrated compact spectral imaging and stereovision system, which can be fitted into diverse light aircraft, small UAVs, and airships to provide low-cost and high performance commercial remote sensing solutions. Its competitive advantages include its foot resolution hyperspectral and inch resolution stereovision capabilities. As a programmable gimbaled instrument, it is also capable of performing most challenging remote sensing missions. That include: 1) homeland and national and international border security, 2) disaster and emergency response for recovery and rescue, 3) law enforcement, and 4) IED detection. As an extremely cost-effective remote sensing tool, GCHIS has a great potential for other general remote sensing applications, including precision agriculture; crop growth status monitoring; vegetation species mapping; rainforest, forest and park services; environmental application; surface pollution detection; land-use surveys; water color, quality, waste discharge, and etc.
