Paper Abstract

A wide variety of hyper-spectral (HS) sensors and collection platforms are in existence. This paper investigates hyper-spectral imaging systems (HIS) worldwide in order to compose a comprehensive listing of these systems. A meta-data structure was developed to identify basic parameter information for all sensors that were reviewed. Systems were grouped into two primary categories of space borne and air borne. Sensors were further grouped into three types of imaging spectrometers; whiskbroom line array band interleaved by pixel, push broom area array band interleaved by line and framing camera band sequential methodology. Several sensor systems are presented using the meta-data structure and parameters developed for the analysis. A summary table identifying all sensor systems that were evaluated is presented. Applications include geo-environmental studies, aerosol release, materials identification, agricultural studies, atmospheric studies, and many others.
