Hyperspectral Imaging Sensor

Specim, Spectral Imaging is launching a high-resolution hyperspectral imaging sensor with exceptional performance and the dimensions required for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and other challenging applications. The V10M sensor operates in the VIS/NIR range of 380 - 1000nm and provides spectral and spatial imaging with negligible sub-pixel distortions (smile, keystone).   The current sensor has an excellent spatial resolution of 1300 pixels, and a 2000 pixel version is to be released later this year. The high resolution does not compromise the imaging speed, which reaches 100 images/s, and even higher rate with spectral binning. The specifications meet the most demanding... (read more)

Hyperspectral Imaging System

SPECIM have released AisaEAGLET, a Hyperspectral Imaging airborne sensor specifically designed for small aircrafts and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). AisaEAGLET will be officially presented at the EARSEL Imaging Spectroscopy workshop in Tel-Aviv, Israel, 16-19 March 2009.     AisaEAGLET is a compact and lightweight hyperspectral airborne sensor that acquires full, contiguous hyperspectral data in the VNIR region (400-1000 nm) and up to 100 push-broom images per second. AisaEAGLET also provides 1600 pixels across the swath. Its flexibility makes it a remote sensing tool for a wide range of applications, from environmental monitoring and forestry to security and defense. AisaEAGLET consists... (read more)

Hyperspectral Imaging in South Africa

Hyperspectral Imagaing is one of the services provided by Southern Mapping, South Africa. The high-tech hyperspectral camera used by the company captures over 360 simultaneous images at up to 1 nanometre intervals between 450 nanometres (blue light) and 2500nm, which represents the short wave infra red portion of the spectrum (invisible to the human eye). The company has submitted several joint research proposals to the National Research Foundation, in order to allow local skills development at universities with a strong research focus on hyperspectral technology (including Limpopo, Fort Hare, UKZN and Stellenbosch). A detailed hyperspectral course to supplement post graduate... (read more)

Hyperspectral Imaging to Analyse Building Material Strengths

A recent study has shown that, with proper post-processing of the data, hyperspectral imaging can automatically and reliably detect weak from strong hardened concrete and normally fired bricks, all without any destructive testing or direct contact with the materials. This technology will help civil engineers and developers rapidly analyse the integrity of construction materials and assist with the documentation, preservation and restoration of historical structures, as well as the asset management of infrastructure. Professor Debra Laefer from NYU’s Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP), in collaboration with Professor Aoife Gowen and Zohreh Zahiri from the University College Dublin, recently demonstrated...

Afghanistan Mapped with Hyperspectral Imaging Data

A coalition of scientists from the United States and Afghanistan has released 60 high-tech maps that will help Afghanistan chart a course for future economic development. These maps represent a milestone as Afghanistan is the first country to be almost completely mapped using hyperspectral imaging data. The coalition of the U.S. Geological Survey, the Afghanistan Ministry of Mines and Petroleum, and the Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO), was created by the U.S. Department of Defense, to share American international science and technology as a strategic tool for promoting economic development.  Hyperspectral data from this research provides a...

Hyperspectral Imaging Shines Light on Life in the Stone Age

The 5,500-year-old clay figurines found at community excavations in Vantaa, Finland, in the summer of 2014 were recently scanned with SPECIM’s hyperspectral camera. The imaging revealed that clay in the figurines was similar to clay on the ground at the excavation site. The figurines were scanned with Fenix, the full-spectral sensor installed in the SisuROCK scanner. It is similar to the AisaFENIX, the full-spectral sensor for remote sensing. Archaeologists’ theory that the bigger of the two figurines would have been used as an oil lamp could not be verified. Spectral signatures of seal blubber, which is still used in oil... (read more)

UAV Hyperspectral Imager Solution Launched

Leica Geosystems, Aibotix and Headwall Photonics have introduced an integrated high performance airborne sensor solution utilising a hyperspectral imager and the Aibot X6 UAV. The Nano-Hyperspec sensor was optimised in terms of size, weight, and power to enable the aerial acquisition of all spectral and spatial data within the scene of interest. A UAV with integrated Headwall sensor has already been successfully flown and will be presented at this year’s Intergeo in Berlin. Precision agriculture, forestry, geological research, and environmental monitoring are just a few specific application areas that benefit from this airborne hyperspectral imaging solution. Equipped with the hyperspectral... (read more)

Partnership Results in Hyperspectral Multi-sensor Aircraft

With the successful integration of SPECIM's AisaFENIX, a full spectrum imager, on the DA42 MPP special mission aeroplane, Diamond Aircraft Industries has added first-rate hyperspectral detection capabilities to its range of turnkey survey solutions. Diamond Aircraft Industries, Exogenesis and SPECIM teamed up to unite hyperspectral data capture and multipurpose data analysis options on the advanced DA42 MPP remote sensing platform. Test flights in Wiener Neustadt (Austria) where Diamond Aircraft is based demonstrated the performance of this hyperspectral turnkey solution. According to Diamond Aircraft and SPECIM, the AisaFENIX sensor found all the intended targets with zero false positives, found potential unexploded... (read more)

Hyperspectral Software Announced for Airborne Applications

Headwall has recently released its new Hyperspec III application software featuring a set of hyperspectral data capture management tools. The enhanced software suite represents an easy-to-use platform for controlling hyperspectral sensors across applications ranging from manned aircraft to UAV airborne remote sensing. The software is compatible with Headwall’s award-winning Hyperspec family of sensors, including lightweight Micro-Hyperspec. An important benefit of Hyperspec III software is that it is multi-threaded and can control more than one sensor simultaneously. For example, machine-vision applications using multiple sensors are able to operate at peak efficiency with this software platform. With sensor frame rates in excess... (read more)
