HySpex Mjolnir Sensors by NEO – high sensitive hyperspectral UAV based imaging


  1. UAV based hyperspectral cameras comprises VNIR models, operating in the range 400 to 1000 nm, SWIR models operating in the range 970 to 2500 nm and Full range models for 400 to 2500nm in one housing
  2. HySpex Mjolnir series cameras have been developed for UAV based hyperspectral remote sensing
  3. Hyperspectral scanners provide highest precision in spectral mapping
  4. Actively cooled detector ensure high radiometric accuracy and high dynamic range
  5. A control unit and navigation system can be included in the systems body
  6. HySpex Mjolnirs can be easily adapted for on ground field usage

Kurze Beschreibung

The HySpex Mjolnir hyperspectral imaging systems for UAVs provide a unique combination of small form factor and low mass, combined with high performance specifications and scientific grade data quality. The series contains three options defined by the wavelength range:

  1. HySpex Mjolnir V-1240 covers the VNIR spectral range, 400 to 1000 nm. With a weight of less than 4 kg and less than 50 W power consumption, the system is very well suited for a wide range of UAVs.
  2. HySpex Mjolnir S-620, covers the SWIR spectral range, 970 to 2500 nm. With a weight of less than 4.5 kg and less than 50 W power consumption, HySpex Mjolnir S-620 is very well suited for a wide range of UAVs.
  3. Combining HySpex Mjolnir V-1240 and HySpex Mjolnir S-620 into a common housing, HySpex Mjolnir VS-620 provides 620 coregistered pixels in the VNIR and SWIR spectral range, 400 to 2500 nm

All Mjlonirs are built with an optical architecture based on the high-end HySpex ODIN system.

NEO offers high-performance unmanned aerial vehicles, fully integrated with the HySpex Mjolnirs. The UAV is fitted with a standard battery package allowing up to 30 minutes flight time. The UAV bundle offered by NEO integrates a hyperspectral camera with a powerful PicoITX i7 Computer and an Applanix APX-15 UAV navigation system, all fitted into a self-contained module mounted on a passive damping platform. The system is also compatible with several off-the-shelf gimbals.
