Paper Abstract

Advanced multispectral, or hyperspectral, camera systems are being used to identify objects of interest on the basis of spectral characteristics. In previous papers we have described the development of a hyperspectral real time tracking system using matched filtering. This paper will discuss alternative methods of gathering hyperspectral imagery and consider how they should be adapted to suit the various applications. It will also present some recent improvements made to the design and operation of our fast visible hyperspectral imaging system. These improvements are allowing objects of interest to be successfully tracked in lower light levels with reduced false alarm levels. Aerial applications of hyperspectral imagers will also be discussed.
