Headwall’s Hyperspectral Sensors Enter Australian Market

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
FITCHBURG, Mass., Sept. 19, 2013 — Portable Analytical Solutions (PAS) of Australia will distribute Headwall Photonics' sensors there and in New Zealand, Headwall announced this week. The company said that the deal reflects the growing interest of the remote-sensing industry in both ground-based and airborne hyperspectral sensors.

PAS, which has 20 years of experience in instrumentation, has offices in Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, its headquarters. The agreement with Headwall also includes New Zealand.

Hyperspectral imaging quickly and nondestructively images anything within the field of view to determine its chemical and spectral fingerprint.

Headwall CEO David Bannon said that the remote-sensing and the mining and exploration communities in the Asia-Pacific region will benefit from PAS's ability to offer "a complete remote-sensing hyperspectral package that complements the other ground-based technologies they represent. Remote sensing is most precise when airborne and ground-truth capabilities are synchronized, and PAS will have the unique ability to provide the very diverse Australian market with integrated solutions."

"We can offer our clients solutions for [unmanned aerial vehicles] and manned aircraft while at the same time showing how the technology is also perfectly suited for field use, in high-speed advanced machine vision applications, for environmental monitoring, precision agriculture and exploration sciences," said Paul Martin of PAS.
