Sensors Selected for Airborne Apps

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Headwall Photonics’ Hyperspec short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) sensors have been selected for airborne applications after the successful completion of rigorous performance testing at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington. The sensors are designed for high spectral and spatial imaging in harsh operating environments such as those required for airborne missions. They are optimized for high signal-to-noise performance and light-weighted for airborne deployment. The Fitchburg, Mass., company said that its hyperspectral sensor platform has played a key role at NRL in various applications.

GLOSSARY
hyperspectral imaging
Methods for identifying and mapping materials through spectroscopic remote sensing. Also called imaging spectroscopy; ultraspectral imaging.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
