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).
Lightweight and compact (Mini Series)
Our Mini Series (Hyper-Cam Mini xLW and Hyper-Cam Mini Airborne) feature cameras that are easily transportable. The Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini can be installed into an aircraft in minutes, and the Hyper-Cam Mini xLW has a low SWaP for ease of use anywhere.
Two modes of acquisition
Use it in mapping or targeting mode
Real-time capabilities
Detect and identify gases in real-time (as an option in the Airborne Mini version).
IP42 sealed enclosure, ideal for field measurements

More about the Hyper-Cam

Discover the Hyper-Cam Mini xLW
With its small Size, Weight and Power (low SWaP), the new Hyper-Cam Mini xLW can be utilized in harsh conditions and hard-to-reach locations to facilitate high-quality infrared spectral imaging measurements.
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.

"We have an excellent ongoing experience with the Hyper-Cam LWIR hyperspectral sensor since 2006. We have used the obtained database for diverse R&D projects in the fields of gas detection and quantification, aerosol classification, validation of radiative transfer models and many other applications of environmental monitoring.”
