PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF A MICROLIGHT AIRCRAFT FOR RADIOMETRIC SURVEYING APPLIED TO LAND RESOURCES ASSESSMENT AND MONITORING IN MALI
A microlight aircraft has been used to obtain and record concurrent, near continuous, spectral responses in MSS and SPOT bands over various ground features: water bodies, geomorphological features, aquatic vegetation and stubbles. The experiment was performed in Mali, along the Niger river, during November 1985. The airborne instrumentation, developed as a prototype for this experiment, also included flying height measurements by a laser rangefinder and a colour videocamera. Spectral data and flying height (5 to 80 meters) were scanned every 0.1 sec. and recorded on the audio channel of a videotape, after multiplexing and analogue to digital conversion (8 channels).
