Hyperspectral Imaging - Next Generation Machine Vision Platform for Food Safety and Quality

Posted by David Bannon on Tue, Jun 26, 2012

Bosoon Park, author of this blog entry, works as an Agricultural Engineer on behalf of the USDA in Georgia. He has done extensive research on hyperspectral and Raman imaging as it applies to food inspection and agriculture. Author of numerous published papers on the subject, Bosoon will be co-presenting a discussion on hyperspectral imaging at the annual conference of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers to be held in Dallas July 30 through August 2.

Hyperspectral Imaging Helps Improve Food Inspection

Posted by Christopher Van Veen on Tue, Jun 12, 2012

We're quite proud to note that the current issue of Photonics Spectra features a new cover story authored by Chris Van Veen and David Bannon of Headwall Photonics. One of the focal points of the story is that hyperspectral imaging isn't solely for satellites and high-flying aircraft...although we're quite well-versed when it comes to those application areas!

The 'High Science' of Hyperspectral Imaging Goes Mainstream

Posted by Jeff Paquette on Wed, Jun 06, 2012

Hyperspectral instruments often conjure up images of ‘high science,’ where complex instruments are tended to by white-jacketed specialists. While the instruments themselves are very precise and highly engineered, Headwall Photonics is taking complexity out while putting exceptional performance in.

ISO9001: Focus on Quality not a passing fad

Posted by David Bannon on Thu, Feb 16, 2012

Earlier this week, Headwall successfully completed its re-certification audit for ISO 9001:2008. We see it as a proud milestone rather than a passing fad, because Quality does matter to us! The audit was conducted by NQA, a prestigious ISO audit and surveillance company.Quality is a necessary and functionality pervasive attribute when you are an analytical instrument manufacturer such as Headwall.  As our business relies on repeat OEM business or high volume spectrometer manufacture, customers expect and demand a very predictable supply chain partner.
