Hyperspectral Imaging Applications
Hyperspectral imaging provides far more color (spectral) information
than conventional digital camera imaging, thereby enabling superior
machine vision sorting and characterization.
For additional background on Hyperspectral imaging, please see our
knowledge base. More detailed
background can be found in the partial listing of
involving Resonon's imaging spectrometers.
- Whether flying in UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or mounted in manned
aircraft, Hyperspectral Imaging technology provides timely, low cost,
high resolution data for a variety of applications.
-Using the power of Hyperspectral imaging crop managers
now have a tool for identifying weeds and stress for smarter
application of control measures.
- Seeing beyond the visible allows for careful classification of
chemical ingredients and counterfeit substances.
Research, Biotech and Medical
- With Hyperspectral imaging multiple dyes can be used in a single
test reducing cost and improving productivity Electrophoreses
(dye marking of separated proteins). This is just one example in
a broad field of research and study.
Art, Antiquities and Color
- Hyperspectral imaging allows non-contact inspection and
analysis of precious artifacts and works of art. Color can now
be spectrally quantified across a broad area.
- Helping to protect our natural resources, Resonon's Hyperspectral
imagers provide researchers a valuable tool for measuring ecological
- Hyperspectral imaging provides color information many times
greater than that of standard RGB technology. Improved color
acuity provides processors and scientists new tools for
quality and material classification.
Security and Defense
- Hyperspectral imaging allows analysts to classify
man-made materials, distinguishing them from the natural
- As a method of quality control Hyperspectral imaging provides
objective data quickly over a wide area.
