FLIR Systems Introduce Hyperspectral Imaging

To collect full 3D hyperspectral data cube simultaneously

FLIR Systems Introduce Hyperspectral ImagingMeer, Belgium  —  FLIR Systems has teamed up with imaging specialists Bodkin Design & Engineering LLC (BD&E) to provide a hyperspectral imaging solution that enables you to collect any waveband of spectral and spatial information in one high-speed video frame.

Hyperspectral imaging systems collect both spectral and spatial information in one instantaneous video frame. This enhances the data stream while eliminating motion artifacts and maximizing signal-to-noise response.

Combined with FLIR’s advanced infrared camera technologies, the systems can be optimized for the visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR, or LWIR wavebands.

Additionally, these systems can be designed to interface with virtually any telescope or microscope.

The new hyperspectral imaging cameras are massively parallel systems able to collect all three dimensions of the full three-dimensional hyperspectral data cube simultaneously.

Incident photons from an imaged scene are detected in parallel by a two-stage optical processor. This device manipulates the data set prior to any electronic detection or software processing, operating on the data set at the speed of light.

Hyperspectral imaging has been recognized as an important tool for remote sensing. It can identify materials by the spectral content of a pixel even though the objects of interest are too small to be spatially resolved, are partially obscured by vegetation or can only be identified by their spectral signature.

High-spectral-resolution hyperspectral imaging is a key element in the developing fields of autonomous material identification, geological mapping, biological research, medical imaging, cancer detection and clinical instrumentation.
