Headwall Photonics

Headwall Photonics introduces the Hyperspec® SNAPSHOT imaging sensor, which has been designed for commercial use by environmental researchers, civil engineers, and remote sensing organizations.

The Hyperspec® Snapshot sensor covers the VNIR spectral range (380-1000nm) and uses diffractive optics technology comprising aberration-corrected features for high spectral and spatial resolution and outstanding signal-to-noise (SNR) characteristics. This commercial product is based on Headwall's Hyperspec RECON sensor which is sold to U.S. military and defense customers.

The Hyperspec® Snapshot sensor is the industry's first portable hyperspectral imager generating very high resolution spectral and spatial datacubes of objects within the sensor's wide field of view (FOV). This high performance, integrated sensor is a small form factor, fully integrated instrument designed for easy, straightforward use in the field. By engineering the optical complexities out of the instrument, the sensor provides point-and-click functionality where scene data is shown on the sensor's LCD screen and recorded on a standard SD-card.
