Headwall Photonics has introduced the Hyperspec Snapshot imaging sensor, which has been designed for commercial use by environmental researchers, civil engineers, and remote sensing organisations.
The Hyperspec Snapshot sensor covers the VNIR spectral range (380-1,000nm) and uses diffractive optics technology comprising aberration-corrected features for high spectral and spatial resolution and outstanding signal-to-noise characteristics. This commercial product is based on Headwall's Hyperspec Recon sensor which is sold to US military and defence customers.
The sensor is a portable hyperspectral imager generating very high resolution spectral and spatial datacubes of objects within the sensor's field of view (FOV). This high performance, integrated sensor is a small form factor, fully integrated instrument designed for easy, straightforward use in the field.
