The GUVis-3511 is based on BSI’s proprietary microradiometer technology and available with up to 19 channels, ranging from 305 to 1,640 nm.  The instrument can also be equipped with a shadowband accessory to determine the direct solar irradiance. Depending on configuration, the GUVis-3511 affords the measurement of the UV Index and the retrieval of aerosol optical depth, cloud optical thickness, and total column ozone.

The OSPREy TM Is Here!

Print PDF
A NASA Technical Memorandum (TM) on BSI's OSPREy system is now available for download. The TM, titled Optical Sensors for Planetary Radiant Energy (OSPREy): Calibration and Validation of Current and Next-Generation NASA Missions, NASA TM# 2012—215872, was written by both NASA and BSI personnel. It is the first of two TMs explaining what OSPREy is and how it works.

BSI Participated in COAST 2011

Print PDF
Three BioAIR instruments—known as the COASTal Airborne In-situ Radiometer (C-AIR) to NASA—flew onboard a modified UV-18A Twin Otter (CIRPAS) in support of the Coastal and Ocean Airborne Science Testbed (COAST) headed by a NASA/ARC team. In addition to C-AIR, a Headwall imaging spectrometer, and the AATS-14 Ames Airborne Tracking Sun-photometer simultaneously collected data over Monterey Bay during the COAST Science Mission.
