Tactical missions handled by small unmanned ground and air vehicles are perfect candidates for hyperspectral sensors. UAVs and UGVs need small, robust sensors that deliver maximum optical performance and efficiency without sacrificing the need for small size and low weight. In every case, the mission objective is clear: “What am I looking at?” Often, the answer is never clear using normal visual techniques. And although camouflage can largely mask the presence of chemical compounds or materials, it cannot completely hide them from a hyperspectral sensor. Once loaded with the spectral signatures of ‘what to look for,’ Headwall’s small and powerful hyperspectral sensors become extremely valuable tools for any tactical mission.
