Hyperspectral Underwater Cameras

SphereOptics WaterCam powered by Cubert
First imaging Underwater Spectrometer

  • High speed, snapshot hyperspectral imager in the VNIR range (450-950 nm)
  • Application areas significantly extended by waterproof housing
  • Simple and robust with no need of IMU (no moving parts inside)
  • Designed spectral mobile mapping
  • The Full frame camera is a non-scanning, easy to use imaging spectrometer especially for underwater applications. With every frame this camera captures a complete 3-dimensional hyperspectral cube with 1 megapixel image resolution, 138 spectral bands and 2500 unique spectra

Short Description

The imaging spectrometer with no need for scanning (like in push broom technology) or image combination after fast filter shifts, provides clean hyperspectral images out of the box without any moving parts.

Functions

  • Smart control suite for hyperspectral cameras with the Cube Ware-Software
  • Real time hyperspectral mapping
  • Hyperspectral video with up to 30 frames per second
  • Automated image processing to calculate hyperspectral indices (preinstalled and adaptable index library)

Underwater applications are being tested and developed in the frame work of ZIM research project KF3269001SA3 in cooperation with the University of Leipzig and the University Neubrandenburg

Applications

  • Spectral mobile mapping, inter alia of water bodies
  • Analysis of water components
  • Food industry
  • Biological and medical applications
  • Ground truthing and field spectroscopy
