New Compact Infrared Hyperspectral Camera Promises Easier Airborne Remote Sensing Surveys

Building on their world-renowned Hyper-Cam – the gold-standard in infrared hyperspectral imaging – Telops has developed and released a new compact version of this hyperspectral imaging system: The Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini, creating another milestone in infrared hyperspectral remote sensing.


Thanks to the optimized design and advanced image control technology, the Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini simplifies the conduction of airborne hyperspectral surveys without compromising system performance. A reduced weight (<24 kg) and size of the camera head and platform (~28 x 35 x 38 cm3) enables a quick installation into small aircrafts within minutes, thus increasing efficiency and reducing operational costs of airborne measurement campaigns.


The Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini provides the highest spectral resolution currently on the market. The system is equipped with the latest cooled SLS detector with 320 x 256 pixels and an extended spectral range in the long-wave infrared region from 7.4 – 11.8 µm, ideal for detection and identification of gases and minerals.


In-flight operation of the Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini is simple: the software continuously adapts system parameters to the everchanging flight conditions, and a state-of-the-art active stabilization platform coupled with a re-engineered image motion compensation system brings unprecedented mapping and targeting capabilities. Once in the air, the control and processing unit can automate the data acquisition process or allow the user to retain full control over acquisition parameters.


With an optional plug-in, the control and processing unit can run powerful data analysis algorithms to present gas detection, identification, and quantification results in real-time, allowing the user to make fast and informed decisions.
