NEWTON, Mass., July 1, 2013 — Bodkin Design & Engineering (BD&E) LLC has received two US patents for enhancements to its nonscanning hyperspectral imaging product line.

US Patent Nos. 8,174,694 and 8,233,148 support technology implemented for high-speed collection of 3-D hyperspectral images (two spatial dimensions plus spectral information), and provide flexibility over a trade between spectral and spatial resolution.

The systems use patented HyperPixel Array technology to release the full information potential of any scene, providing an enhanced data stream, eliminating motion artifacts and maximizing signal-to-noise response. Operating in wavelengths ranging from the visible through the long-wave IR, the systems can interface with any fore optics, from telescope to microscope, the company said.

GLOSSARY
hyperspectral imaging
Methods for identifying and mapping materials through spectroscopic remote sensing. Also called imaging spectroscopy; ultraspectral imaging.
spatial resolution
In a vision system, the linear dimensions (X and Y) of the field of view, as measured in the image plane, divided by the number of pixels in the X and Y dimensions of the system's imaging array or image digitizer, expressed in mils or inches per pixel.
