HYPERSPEC® sensors are line-scanning hyperspectral cameras (sometimes called ‘pushbroom’ sensors) that collect reflected light through an image slit. One row of spatial pixels is collected per frame as the sensor or subject moves, with each pixel containing full spectral data. Motion can happen as a consequence of the platform (e.g., rotary or linear stage, UAV, aircraft, satellite) or the subject (e.g., food inspection line, conveyor belt). A hyperspectral data cube is created containing complete X, Y, and wavelength data that can be analyzed and managed through Headwall's or even third-party software.
See our Knowledge Center for more information.
Our Scanning Kits come in two sizes for use on the benchtop. You can place specimens/samples onto a flat stage that can be easily cleaned if necessary. The stage is programmed by Headwall software to move at a precise speed, enabling capture of hyperspectral imaging data at high spatial and spectral resolution. A variety of sensors can be mounted to the scanning kits with a choice of lenses for optimal field-of-view and focusing distance.
Our hyperspectral sensors can be attached onto a rotational stage or pan-tilt head that can be mounted on a tripod, platform, or other stable surface. The precise movement of the stage or pan-tilt head, controlled by Headwall software, enables hyperspectral imaging data to be captured.
The Hyperspec MV.X is designed to stream hyperspectrally classified data from products or raw material passing in front of it. To simulate a production line environment, a mini conveyor belt can be purchased with manual speed controller, as well as scaffolding for mounting the MV.X.
Most remote-sensing missions rely on sunlight for illumination. However, many industrial, biomedical, and other applications require artificial light to illuminate the subject. Headwall offers a variety of broadband lighting systems for wavelengths matching the sensitivities of our sensors.
