Application

Hyperspectral images are more sophisticated and precise than the images produced by standard color cameras, which can only capture the spectral channels associated with the three primary colors – red, green, and blue. Hyperspectral imaging is the collecting and processing of information from across the electromagnetic spectrum.

Hyperspectral images are required:

  • In agriculture for monitoring the development and health of crops
  • In geology for rapidly mapping nearly all minerals
  • In astronomy to determine a spatially-resolved spectral image
  • In the military to provide a unique detection, identification and imaging capability for chemical agents
  • In many research areas, such as vegetation research, forensics, life sciences, nano-toxicology and food analysis
