Abstract: Research has found that air borne and satellite sensors are the most widely used method for detecting archaeological remains. The study examines the use of a low altitude airborne system incorporating a helium balloon, spectroradiometer, digital and thermal camera in order to measure the reflectance values. This study integrates the use of spectroradiometers, digital cameras, NIR filters and balloons in archaeological sites to measure the reflectance values and detect subsurface archaeological remains. It was found that reflectance values increase according to altitude. This study is part of the ICAROS project, which is under the program"Development of a low altitude airborne remote sensing system for the processing of satellite data for archaeological investigations" and is funded by the Research Promotion Foundation.
