Hyperspectral Imaging Systems

Hyperspectral imaging is the collection and processing of spectral data. Utilising the technique of Spectroscopy, which is used to identify materials based on how light behaves when it hits a subject, hyperspectral imaging obtains multiple spectra of data for each pixel in the image of a scene. Hyperspectral imaging sensors collect information as a set of images, representing different bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. These images are combined to form a hyperspectral data cube, which can be processed and analysed to interpret spectral data for a wide range of applications.

We are the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for Headwall Photonics, a market-leading manufacturer of hyperspectral imaging sensors and spectral instrumentation based in the US. Headwall Photonics’ spectral instrumentation is proven to deliver excellent results for end users and OEMs across industrial, commercial and government markets. With extensive manufacturer technical support, you’ll also have access to our in-house spectral imaging expertise and we are happy to work with you to develop an application tailored to your needs.

Airborne Hyperspectral Imaging, Lab-based Integration & Machine Vision

Hyperspectral cameras optimised for airborne use can be mounted on an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), such as a drone, in order to capture large area spectral images. These images create a map of organic materials within the survey area and can be used in a variety of remote sensing applications including (but not limited to):

  • agricultural & vegetation applications
  • forestry management
  • land contamination & chemical detection
  • environmental monitoring
  • mining/mineral exploration

Our hyperspectral imaging sensors can also be fully integrated for lab-based use, ideal for building classification spectral libraries and validating field-work. Used in conjunction with a hyperspectral imaging scanning system, hyperspectral imaging has a vast array of lab-based and machine vision applications, including: food grading and inspection, recycling, and cultural heritage analysis.

We provide complete airborne hyperspectral imaging solutions, including ground-based systems and UAVs, as well as lab-based and machine vision systems. Our in-house specialists will also provide full installation and training, with expert manufacturer support from Headwall Photonics.
