Headwall Announces Fully Integrated Nano-Hyperspec® Sensor Payload For Small Hand-Launched UAVs

Headwall--Nano-Hyperspecx200In extending technological leadership within the remote sensing market, Headwall announced availability of its new Nano-Hyperspec sensor for commercial UAV deployment. The low-cost hyperspectral sensor operates in the VNIR (400-1000nm) spectral range and includes onboard data processing and storage to minimize size, weight, and power constraints inherent with small, hand-launched UAVs.

The Nano-Hyperspec sensor can be combined with optional GPS/IMU capabilities to provide an airborne configuration that is small, light, and fully integrated. The total sensor package with data processor and storage weighs approximately 1.5 lb. (0.6 kg) and measures a scant 3 inch x 3 inch x 4.7 inch (76.2mm x 76.2mm x 119.4mm).

The VNIR sensor features 640 spatial bands and 270 spectral bands at a resolution of 2-3 nm. The frame rate of the Nano-Hyperspec is over 300 frames per second; usable data storage capacity is 480GB. Nano-Hyperspec is available in two options:

• OEM-programmable sensor configuration
• High-performance sensor configuration for end-users

“We designed Nano-Hyperspec to complement our performance-leading Hyperspec line of sensors and the growing market for small, low-cost, hand-launched UAVs,” explained Headwall CEO David Bannon. “The real innovation is the integration of the Nano-Hyperspec optical sensor and data processing module,” he noted. The optional GPS/IMU provides pinpoint correlation between actual terrain coordinates and hyperspectral data for a completely ortho-rectified hyperspectral data set. This functionality is just one of the many capabilities of Headwall’s Hyperspec III software.
