ABOUT BLOOMOPTIX

BloomOptix focuses on remote sensing methods for water quality with a focus on harmful algal blooms (HABs). The current tools used to monitor and track HABs in waterways heavily rely on satellite remote sensing. However, due to cloud cover, coarse spatial and temporal resolution, and steep development costs, satellite use for HAB monitoring can be flawed. BloomOptix is using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for high-resolution HAB monitoring and imaging. BloomOptix currently employs multispectral and hyperspectral imaging to survey lake surfaces for HAB occurrence, intensity, sediment plume monitoring, and combines spectral data with UAV-collected water sample analysis.
