Hyperspectral Cameras

The Hyper-Cam is an advanced passive infrared hyperspectral imaging system that combines high spatial and spectral resolution. It provides real-time radiometrically calibrated data for gas and mineral detection and identification. It is offered in ground-based format, but also as a compact airborne hyperspectral imaging system: the Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini.

The Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini is a revolutionary hyperspectral imaging system that is designed to fit small aircrafts and other compact vehicles. This lightweight imaging sensor is a versatile tool for hyperspectral IR surveys, and a unique instrument for real-time gas detection, identification and quantification.

Key Benefits

Best spectral resolution on the market
No camera does it better than the Hyper-Cam.
Best sensitivity on the market
The Hyper-Cam is able to detect and identify extremely small amounts of gases down to ppm levels (parts per million).
Two modes of acquisition
Use it in mapping or targeting mode
Lightweight and compact (airborne version)
At just 50 pounds and with a volume of roughly one cubic foot, the Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini can be installed into an aircraft in minutes.
Real-time capabilities
Detect and identify gases in real-time (as an option in the Airborne Mini version).
Waterproof
IP42 sealed enclosure, ideal for field measurements

More about the Hyper-Cam

Discover the HC Airborne Mini
With its separate optical head and processing unit, swappable fore-optics and powerful software suite, this Hyper-Cam was designed with flexibility in mind.
Get impressive gas detection
With the Telops Hyper-Cam, you can detect and identify gases and locate them precisely in an image or video, pixel by pixel. Recently, scientists from Linköping University, in Sweden, were able to film low-concentration methane emissions in real time - a breakthrough that could play a significant role in the fight against climate change. Their results were published in the prestigious journal Nature Climate Change.
Obtain geo-referenced data
The Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini produces orthorectified, geo-referenced infrared gas detection images which can be overlayed with Google Earth to quickly identify a gas leak. Here, a 10 g/s methane leak is seen at an altitude of 600 m.
