Headwall (Fitchburg, MA) announced the availability of a new hyperspectral imager targeting very high resolution spectral measurements of 0.1 nm over specific spectral ranges which yield indicators of vegetative fluorescence to measure plant health. The ability of the new High Resolution Hyperspec instrument to analyze chlorophyll fluorescence emissions at extremely high resolution and high throughput gives remote sensing researchers and precision agriculturalists exceptionally valuable data from which to make environmental decisions. The new instrument is smaller, lighter, and more affordable than other commercially available products and is optimized with robust packaging for airborne and satellite deployment. The new sensor is based on Headwall's all-reflective concentric optical design that uses:
- Precise, high diffraction-efficiency gratings for simultaneous high spatial and spectral resolution of < 0.1nm across the spectral range of the instrument.
- High efficiency and low stray light.
- Minimized smile and keystone distortion.
