Headwall Photonics Announces Availability of New Nano-Hyperspec Sensor for Commercial UAV Deployment

Headwall Photonics announced availability of its new Nano-Hyperspec sensor for commercial UAV deployment. The low-cost hyperspectral sensor operates in the VNIR (400-1,000nm) spectral range and includes onboard data processing and storage to minimize size, weight, and power constraints inherent with small, hand-launched UAVs. The Nano-Hyperspec sensor can be combined with optional GPS/IMU capabilities to provide an airborne configuration that is small, light, and fully integrated. The total sensor package with data processor and storage weighs approximately 1.5 lb. (0.6 kg) and measures a scant 3 inch x 3 inch x 4.7 inch (76.2mm x 76.2mm x 119.4mm). The VNIR sensor features 640 spatial bands and 270 spectral bands at a resolution of 2-3 nm. The frame rate of the Nano-Hyperspec is over 300 frames per second; usable data storage capacity is 480GB. Nano-Hyperspec is available in two options: OEM-programmable sensor configuration and high-performance sensor configuration for end-users.
