For Stationary and Airborne Applications
TORRANCE, Calif., March 4, 2008 -- HyperScan is a pushbroom hyperspectral sensor for both stationary and airborne applications, according to its manufacturer, Opto-Knowledge Systems Inc. (OKSI).

The system combines an imaging spectrometer, thermoelectrically cooled CCD camera, and intelligent control software to give 1.3 nm of spectral resolution in the 400- to 1000-nm range, with ranges of 900 to 1700 nm and 1000 to 2500 nm also available, OKSI said.

HyperScan.jpgAdditional HyperScan features include spectral binning, ROI (region of interest) control, high-resolution scanning mirror (operating in stare-scan and continuous-scan modes for ground-based applications), versatile mounting configurations, and interchangeable apochromatic lenses.

Flight configurations include GPS, AHARS (attitude heading and reference system), altimeter, and complete data acquisition control, according to the company.

hyperspectral imaging
Methods for identifying and mapping materials through spectroscopic remote sensing. Also called imaging spectroscopy; ultraspectral imaging.
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...
1. A generic term for detector. 2. A complete optical/mechanical/electronic system that contains some form of radiation detector.
A kind of spectrograph in which some form of detector, other than a photographic film, is used to measure the distribution of radiation in a particular wavelength region.
