FLIR Systems Introduce Hyperspectral Imaging

To collect full 3D hyperspectral data cube simultaneously

FLIR Systems Introduce Hyperspectral ImagingMeer, Belgium  —  FLIR Systems has teamed up with imaging specialists Bodkin Design & Engineering LLC (BD&E) to provide a hyperspectral imaging solution that enables you to collect any waveband of spectral and spatial information in one high-speed video frame.

Hyperspectral imaging systems collect both spectral and spatial information in one instantaneous video frame. This enhances the data stream while eliminating motion artifacts and maximizing signal-to-noise response.

Combined with FLIR’s advanced infrared camera technologies, the systems can be optimized for the visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR, or LWIR wavebands.

Additionally, these systems can be designed to interface with virtually any telescope or microscope.

The new hyperspectral imaging cameras are massively parallel systems able to collect all three dimensions of the full three-dimensional hyperspectral data cube simultaneously.

Incident photons from an imaged scene are detected in parallel by a two-stage optical processor. This device manipulates the data set prior to any electronic detection or software processing, operating on the data set at the speed of light.

Hyperspectral imaging has been recognized as an important tool for remote sensing. It can identify materials by the spectral content of a pixel even though the objects of interest are too small to be spatially resolved, are partially obscured by vegetation or can only be identified by their spectral signature.

High-spectral-resolution hyperspectral imaging is a key element in the developing fields of autonomous material identification, geological mapping, biological research, medical imaging, cancer detection and clinical instrumentation.

HGH Infrared Systems Presents New Generation of Blackbodies

SPIE Security + Defence 2018

New Blackbody generationBERLIN, Germany. — (PRWEB) — HGH Infrared Systems is exhibiting at SPIE Security + Defence in Berlin, to showcase a new generation of Blackbodies with unrivalled performance. Catherine Barrat, Head of Test And Measurement, will give an exclusive presentation to the attendees on September 13th

In order to anticipate the market of IR sensors’ needs, and keeping in mind the importance of the human-machine interface in the maintenance and testing of electro-optics devices, HGH Infrared Systems recently developed an advanced generation of electronic controllers for blackbodies.

With this new compact 2U electronic controller, the blackbody management is greatly facilitated due to the interchangeability between the blackbody’s head and the controller.

The time spent on MRTD procedure is reduced by half, providing the highest slew rate and the fastest stabilization time on the market.

The transition between testing a MWIR sensor and a LWIR sensor is immediate.

The new 2U electronic controller, compatible with both new and old generations of HGH’s blackbodies, drastically improves their performance making them the upmost solution to test and calibrate infrared systems.

“HGH Infrared Systems is ready for years to come for the upcoming generation of infrared sensors!’’ said Catherine Barrat, Head of the Test & Measurement Department at HGH Infrared Systems.

To mark the occasion, on September 13th, Catherine Barrat will give an exclusive presentation to the delegates on the “Influence of ambient temperature on the radiation of IR reference sources: effect on the calibration of IR sensors and method of compensation.

The conference will also be an opportunity for visitors to learn more about the company’s IRCOL 600/6000, the largest collimator ever built to test very long focal length IR and visible cameras, including a DCN1000 blackbody and an ISV integrating sphere.
