"Remote Sensing is a technology for sampling electromagnetic radiation to acquire and interpret non-contiguous geospatial data from which to extract information about features, objects, and classes on the Earth's land surface, oceans, and atmosphere (and, where applicable, on the exteriors of other bodies in the solar system, or, in the broadest framework, celestial bodies such as stars and galaxies)." (Short, Nicholas. Remote Sensing Tutorial (NASA Reference Publication 1078). NASA. ).

ASD technology has maintained its leadership since 1990 by providing reliable spectrometers that help you make the most of your time in the field through lab-quality measurement and rapid data acquisition. ASD instrumentation employs a fiber optic cable that provides superior flexibility and allows a full complement of accessories to meet your specific data-gathering requirements. ASD FieldSpec spectroradiometers have been used successfully in a range of advanced research applications, including:

  • Airborne Measurements
  • Atmospheric Remote Sensing
  • Climatology
  • Crops and Soils
  • Forestry, Ecology, and Plant Physiology
  • Geology
  • Ground Truthing
  • Hyperspectral and Multispectral Remote Sensing
  • Oceanography and Inland Water Bodies
  • Plant Breeding
  • Snow and Ice
  • Spectroradiometry and Radiometric Calibration
  • Miscellaneous Remote Sensing Applications

Profitable mining operations require knowledge of ore mineralogy, both in mineral mapping for exploration and concentration levels of minerals in ore on the production line. Traditional laboratory based mineral analysis methods are time consuming, expensive, and interrupted by long intervals for sample transport and test processing by highly skilled technicians. By contrast, analysis with near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is fast, economically efficient, continuous throughout exploration and production, and doesn't require extensive scientific expertise.

With the TerraSpec®, QualitySpec®, and LabSpec® lines of spectrometers, mine operators and exploration geologists have all the tools they need to accurately identify and characterize orebodies in a wide variety of settings:

  • Surface exploration surveys of large areas of interest
  • Remote sensing hyperspectral studies
  • Analysis of existing collections
  • Drill locations
  • High grade ore zone mapping
  • Production lines

Calling on 20 years of experience in NIR-based forestry, environmental, and plant analysis, ASD has emerged as a world leader in real-time, technology-driven measurement solutions for the forest products industry. ASD's portfolio of measurement solutions is ideal for use in the lab, on the operator floor, and mounted over the conveyor or product flow.

ASD's portable and on-line measurement solutions offer:

  • Enhanced mill automation through rapid data acquisition and seamless process integration
  • Improved efficiency in the chip yard, bleach plant, and lime kiln operation areas
  • Elimination of hazardous, costly materials used in traditional wet chemistry techniques
  • Reduced need for highly technical operators
  • Fast, easy analysis of vital material parameters before, during, and after the pulping process for both TMP and Kraft pulp
  • Greater profitability through superior data quality, minimal operator variability, and excellent device longevity
  • Increased processing speed through non contact measurement provides real-time feedback to the mill's process control DCS

When it comes to pharmaceuticals, exact knowledge of product makeup is essential. ASD specializes in providing materials measurement instruments that help pharmaceutical companies elevate their quality control and improve their operations. Whether you want to ascertain the content of a pill, verify correct formulation, or search for counterfeit drugs, we have the product to meet your needs.

All ASD products feature easy-to-use software that is compatible with the three leading chemometric software packages such as Grams, Simca and Unscrambler. We also provide all of the support information you need to meet 21CFR part 11 compliance.

ASD measurement solutions have been used effectively for:

  • Raw material inspection in the lab or on the warehouse floor
  • Quality inspection to ensure manufacturing specifications
  • Counterfeit drug detection

More than just an instrumentation company, ASD helps customers solve problems to improve business, create efficiencies and decrease processing costs. Whether you're analyzing material content or verifying properties using Vis/NIR spectroscopy, ASD expertise and instrumentation can be applied to meet the analytical needs of businesses in nearly any industry. As an end-to-end service provider, ASD is your partner from start to finish.
