Hyperspectral Imaging to Catch Poultry Production Line Pollution

The November 2018 issue of Poultry Digital magazine features a "Foreign Intelligence" article (pages 10-13) on how imaging technology can reduce or eliminate poultry production line pollution. Headwall hyperspectral cameras can detect the spectral "fingerprint" of contamination such as fecal matter or the hallmarks of diseases such as septicemia and toxemia.

Headwall Successfully Re-Certifies to ISO 9001

Manufacturing companies of any size must demonstrate to their customers that they are quality-driven organizations. This holds for products, processes, and procedures. The global economy demands this. Since its inception, Headwall recognized that ISO certification would be a core competitive differentiator. The Company set out to be judged against the rigorous ISO9001 standard and was rewarded with certification in 2008. Indeed, Headwall was one of the smallest manufacturing companies to be so certified.

Every three years Headwall must undergo a recertification audit, and each time we have successfully demonstrated our adherence to the ISO standard. Our latest such audit with nqa-usa came this month, and we are very pleased and proud to say that we continue to be an ISO9001 organization. On the global stage, and with customers among the largest and best known, Headwall is recognized for having a level of thoroughness and discipline across the key areas of its business. This success translates into how our products are designed, how they are built, how corrective actions are identified and handled, how communications both internal and external are managed, and how procedures and processes are documented and then followed.

Achieving successful ISO9001 recertification is a proud moment for Headwall every three years, and we wanted to make mention of it here.

Nano-Hyperspec...in the air and on the ground

Next week during Photonics West we’ll be demonstrating our very newest hyperspectral sensor: Nano-Hyperspec. We gave it that name because it’s small...exceptionally small. Think of a Rubik's Cube and you've got it. The market said it needed a robust, aberration-corrected hyperspectral sensor purpose-built for small, hand-launched UAVs. One perfect example is the X6 from the Aibotix division of Leica-Geosystems, a company with whom Headwall signed an agreement in late 2014. “There’s a confluence within the remote sensing marketplace,” said Headwall CEO David Bannon. “The attractiveness of affordable, easy to launch UAVs runs headlong into the need for perfectly matched sensor instruments that they can carry.” In conceiving Nano-Hyperspec, Headwall consolidated and integrated as much as possible to yield a small, performance-packed unit that even the smallest UAVs could easily carry.

Headwall's Field-of-View Calculator

When it comes to hyperspectral imaging, it isn’t always about the hardware. Before users even get to the stage of specifying a sensor instrument, they need to ask a few questions:

Headwall Remote Sensing Capabilities Seen “Down Under”

This past week, Headwall remote sensing team finished a productive week Down Under at the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) in Melbourne, Australia.  The conference, organized by the IEEE, comprises a ‘Who’s Who’ across the global remote sensing community. But curiously absent were representatives from the United States, probably reflecting the topic du jour: sequestration. Imagine holding a geo-spatial and remote sensing conference and no one from NASA was able to attend?

Hyperspectral and Remote Sensing the focus at EARSeL!

Headwall's exhibition schedule kicks into high gear this month. First up is our appearance at the 8th Imaging Spectrometry Workshop, sponsored by The European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL). This event gives visitors the opportunity to understand how hyperspectral imaging can be a valuable scientific tool for the research community. Precision agriculture, mining & minerals, petroleum pipeline surveillance, and disaster mitigation are just a few application areas and more are uncovered all the time as the technology becomes more affordable and easier to use.
