visNIR microHSI™

NovaSol's microHSI™ series of hyperspectral imaging sensors offers a unique combination of high performance and unprecedented compact size and low weight. The visNIR microHSI™ with 680 spatial pixel swath format is ideal for limited payload applications. With three spectral overage/frame rate combinations, the visNIR microHSI™ operates at up to 86Hz, provides up to 180 bands of spectral resolution, and spans the 380-1000nm near uv/visible/near infrared region.

NovaSol has advanced the state of the art with the visNIR microHSI™ by incorporating its patented solid block Offner relay miniaturization technology in its hyperspectral imaging spectrograph designs. The visNIR microHSI™ is less than 25% of the size of conventional sensors, enabling integration of hyperspectral sensing capability into small airborne and ground platforms, turreted systems for complex multi-sensor/multi-mission applications, and constrained space industrial sites. The visNIR microHSI™ with foreoptics weighs less than a single pound, enabling deployment in UAVs or man-portable/handheld application. As with all NOVASOL sensors, the visNIR microHSI™ achieves its high spatial, spectral, and sensitivity performance through a completely integrated optical design, in contrast to sensors assembled from independent components.

NovaSol provides individual visNIR hyperspectral sensors for customer integration or complete capability with a total system, incorporating
multiple sensors, real time and on-board data exploitation, and user processing station support.
