Nano HyperSpec

A completely integrated lightweight VNIR hyperspectral Sensor for small UAV applications that includes on-board data-processing/storage and GPS/IMU.

today’s UAVs are exceptionally small and light and they demand payloads to match.

Headwall’s new Nano-Hyperspec® is a completely integrated hyperspectral sensor that is designed for the VNIR (400-1000nm) spectral range. A key advantage of Nano- Hyperspec is that it also includes on-board data collection and storage, plus attached GPS/IMU functionality. This allows the payload bay of the UAV to be optimized for other needs such as video or thermal imaging. Weight and space is saved, making for a more efficient airborne solution.
