Headwall Hyperspec - Co-Aligned VNIR-SWIR

Headwall’s Co-Aligned Dual VNIR-SWIR sensor package with co-aligned pixels for superb imaging performance from 400-2500nm.

Headwall’s VNIR-SWIR imaging sensor leverages a patented aberration-corrected design that provides very high spectral and spatial resolution with stable measurement accuracy. With diffractive optics specifically designed and manufactured by Headwall, the dual hyperspectral sensors do not exhibit image aberrations such as stray light, optical distortions, or thermal instabilities. Along with aberration-corrected imaging, the Hyperspec VNIR-SWIR sensor package offers a wide field of view and high signal-to-noise (SNR) performance. Pixels from both sensors are co-aligned through software.

Headwall’s Hyperspec® VNIR-SWIR sensor provides image data across the broadband range of 400-2500nm, reducing processing times and yielding superior imaging performance. A CMOS FPA is used for the VNIR sensor while a cooled MCT array is used for the SWIR sensor. Inside the enclosure is a high-accuracy GPS/IMU plus the data storage and processing computer. Headwall’s VNIR-SWIR airborne sensor package measures approximately 10.7” x 8.2” x 6.5” in size (272mm x 208mm x 165mm) and weighs approximately 6.25 lb. (2.83 kg), making it suitable for aircraft and certain UAVs.

Hyperspec Nano

Headwall’s new Nano-Hyperspec® is a completely integrated hyperspectral sensor designed for the VNIR (400-1000nm) spectral range.

A completely integrated lightweight (<0.52kg) 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.

A key advantage of Nano-Hyperspec is that it also includes 480GB of on-board data collection/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.

Nano-Hyperspec is perfect for today’s new breed of hand-launched UAVs and drones, representing a mix of fixed-wing and multi-rotor models to meet practically any deployment scenario.

HyperCore

Headwall’s HyperCore™ Data Processing Unit manages the high-speed computing function for airborne applications in a small and very light package.

HyperCore™ is a small and powerful storage and management system that synthesizes the data streams from hyperspectral sensors plus a range of other instruments commonly used in airborne applications. Combining HyperCore™ with Headwall’s Micro-Hyperspec® sensor yields a solution that is the lightest and smallest in the industry. This means more payload budget for other instruments, such as LiDAR, RGB, thermal, and FODIS, which can be all be connected simultaneously to the unit.
