Hyperspectral IR 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 solid detection and identification.

Additional Info

Key benefits include:

  • Best spectral resolution on the market
  • Impressive sensitivity, down to ppm levels
  • Weatherproof enclosure ideal for field measurements

Hyper-Cam Methane
Hyper-Cam Methane:

hyper cam methaneThe Hyper-Cam Methane is a unique, high performance, thermal hyperspectral imaging camera designed for real-time detection and identification of methane (CH4) gas leaks and emissions. This highly sensitive, methane detection system allows the detection of gas leaks as well as the mapping of methane gas over an extended area.

The camera is easy to use and is ideal for gas leak detection and mapping of methane in either large or hard to reach areas. With its integrated calibration system and electronics Hyper-Cam Methane can be used in a standalone (and unmanned) configuration for over 24 hrs.

Key Benefits

  • Rapid visualization of leaks and emissions
  • Detection of small quantities of methane (1 ppm, depending on the environmental conditions) due to high sensitivity
  • Passive monitoring of vast areas
Airborne Solution

Meet the airborne version of the Hyper-Cam.

The Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini can be used as an advanced hyperspectral imaging solution for airborne infrared spectroscopy.

Compact and lightweight, the Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini is equipped with an active stabilization system and an image motion compensation mirror, which allows it to be used in small aircrafts in order to map vast areas and obtain clear, high-quality spectral information. 

Key benefits:

  • Easy to install - weighs less than 24 kg
  • Flexible: changeable fore-optics, separate optical head and processing unit, possibility to automate the data acquisition process
  • User-selectable spectral resolution down to 1 cm-1 for high quality resolution
  • Possibility to choose between mapping and targeting acquisition modes
Motorized Polarizer
Motorized Polarizer:

polariseurThe motorized polarizer allows hyperspectral measurements in a linear polarization state at a user-defined angle. It allows better discrimination of targets, such as man-made objects, surface contaminants and liquid films.

The polarizer is mounted on a 360° rotation stage, with continuously tunable angle capability, between the sensor and the calibration module.
