Headwall Photonics Introduces Ultra-Compact Data System for UAV Airborne Applications

Headwall Photonics has introduced a new, powerful data processing unit specifically designed for UAV airborne applications requiring sensor fusion. The small size and weight of HyperCore combined with its powerful data processing and high capacity storage connections offers the industry's only processing platform for fusing hyperspectral sensing data with many other sensor payloads on the aircraft. Utilizing Hyperspec III, the company's spectral imaging application software, HyperCore serves as the central connection point for remote-sensing instruments such as multiple hyperspectral sensors, LiDAR, thermal cameras, RGB instruments, GPS/IMU units, and many more. Designed for harsh airborne environments and only the size and weight of a Rubik's Cube, HyperCore stores 500GB of incoming airborne data and features two Gigabit Ethernet connections, one base CameraLink connection, and a multi-purpose I/O port to handle GPS/INS, sensor commands, etc. Depending on the instruments being connected, Headwall supplies HyperCore with the necessary Hyperspec III software modules to provide a comprehensive operational platform. HyperCore is the data processing hub specifically designed for use aboard today's small and light UAVs.
