A good method for sampling reflectance of vegetation canopies is to connect a flexible, lightweight fiber optic cable (also referred to as “Foreoptic”) of a desired length to the detector. This requires a fiber optic with an SMA type connector at one end (to thread on to the detector) and a foreoptic with a defined field-of-view (FOV) at the other end (to limit the field of view to a defined region of the target). The FOV can be limited one of two ways:
- A lens with a defined FOV. For example, PP Systems can provide a lens with a defined FOV (3°, 6° or 12°) that can thread on to an SMA connector. Therefore, it conveniently connects to a fiber optic having SMA connections at both ends.
