Nasa contract for hyperspectral imaging

13 November 2007



Nasa has selected Headwall’s Hyperspec imaging sensor for use in hyperspectral remote sensing projects.

 

The sensor will be used in the AVIRIS (Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer) program to provide high-quality, aberration-corrected imaging with high spectral and spatial resolution.

The Hyperspec sensor is based on Headwall’s patented, high efficiency sensor design that provides distortion-free chemical imaging across a broad spectral region of interest. Nasa will make use of its high optical throughput, high signal-to-noise ration, and high dynamic range.
