Headwall’s HYPERSPEC® family of hyperspectral sensors are small, light, and rugged. The simple but elegant all-concentric design uses precisely-engineered master-quality holographic diffraction gratings and mirrors to deliver high signal-to-noise, high spectral and spatial resolution, and a wide, aberration-corrected field of view.
HYPERSPEC® sensors are line-scanning hyperspectral cameras (sometimes called pushbroom) that collect reflected light through an image slit. One row of spatial pixels is collected per frame as motion occurs, with each pixel containing full spectral data. Motion can be accomplished in two ways: either as an airborne deployment (UAV, aircraft, or satellite) or stationary (where motion is accomplished beneath the sensor, such as a food inspection line). A hyperspectral data cube thus contains complete X, Y, and wavelength data that can be analyzed and managed through powerful applications software e.g. MiniGIS.
Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe (CHRSE)
Headwall Photonics Inc., USA and geo-Konzept GmbH, Germany founded the Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe (CHRSE) in November 2019.
The CHRSE is located at the headquarters of geo-Konzept GmbH in Adelschlag, Germany. The center will promote the use of hyperspectral data collection in the fields of agriculture, mining, environmental monitoring and infrastructure inspection. The CHRSE has large areas for unmanned drone flights and certified UAV pilots. Demonstrations, tests and training can be carried out on site in a practical manner.
