Thermal/Nuclear

Thermal plumes detected by satellite provide information on the operational status of nuclear power generators and other facilities with thermal emissions.

Materials detection and identification

Hyperspectral analysis can find and identify materials based on their unique spectral signatures.  Applications include the interpretation and status of mining operations, and the detection and identification of targets including camouflaged materials.

Mine development

Change analysis of series of multispectral or hyperspectral satellite images can track the expansion of mining operations over time.
