Vis/NIR microHSI™

The microHSI™ series of hyperspectral imaging spectrometers offers vastly reduced size, weight, and power over conventional hyperspectral imaging sensors. 

NovaSol has advanced the state of the art with the VNIR microHSI™ incorporating patented technology for miniaturization of hyperspectral sensors. The VNIR microHSI™ is less than 25% of the size of alternative sensors and thereby enables integration of Hyperspectral sensing into small airborne platforms and multi-sensor applications. 

The Vis/NIR version (pictured with custom fore optics), weighs less than 1 pound and measures 2” x 2.5” x 2.5”, enabling deployment in UAVs or man-portable applications. Operating wavelengths are 400 – 1000 nm, typically 60 spectral bands (360 max), with 680 spatial elements.
