Nasa contract for hyperspectral imaging

Share this on social media:

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.
