Environmental Monitoring and Mining Exploration

We specialise in hyperspectral imaging and ground truthing solutions, as well as portable and handheld NIR, FTIR, LIBS and XRF spectroscopy for environmental monitoring and mining exploration applications.

Environmental monitoring is used in environmental impact assessments, to monitor the state of a natural environment and the impact that human activity may have on it. Our solutions can help monitor soil and water quality in order to protect it from negative impact caused by human activity.

Mineral exploration aims to discover deposits of minerals that can be used to meet the resource needs of society. Our solutions enable the identification of new mineral prospects such as gemstones, fuels and industrial raw materials.

Hyperspectral Imaging

Headwall Photonics’ Hyperspectral Imaging Sensors are ideal for a wide range of environmental monitoring applications. From soil analysis to environmental change detection, the small, light hyperspectral imaging sensors are expertly designed for interchangeable use in lab, field and airborne applications.

With outstanding spatial and spectral resolution, a wide field of view and a high signal to noise ratio, Hyperspec® Hyperspectral Imaging Sensors offer optimal performance for even the most demanding applications and harsh environments.

Ground Truthing

Designed to work in conjunction with hyperspectral data collection, the ASD FieldSpec Series of high-performance portable spectroradiometers are ideal for remote sensing and ground truthing applications. Collect solar reflectance, radiance, irradiance and reflectance spectral data with improved speed, performance and portability.

Portable Vis-NIR Spectroscopy

The ASD TerraSpec is a rugged, field portable Vis-NIR spectrometer with the resolution and performance required for providing rapid mineral analysis and valuable geometallurgical information that can be used in mining exploration.

Trusted by the mining industry for more than a decade the only real time technology that can accurately measure mineral abundances in the field or in the lab.
