Headwall

The HeadWall Hyperspec imager is a pushbroom sensor with a wavenumber rage from 400 – 2500 nm and dual VNIR/SWIR sensors with co-aligned pixels. The sensors have 270 (VNIR) & 267 (SWIR) spectral pixels with 640 pixels across the swath with 12 (VNIR) and 16 bit (SWIR) resolution.

Co-Aligned VNIR-SWIR

  • Spectral range: VNIR + SWIR (400-2500nm)
  • Spectral pixels: 270 VNIR; 267 SWIR
  • Spatial pixels: 640
  • FWHM slit image: 6nm VNIR, 8nm SWIR
  • Max frame rate: 350Hz VNIR; 200Hz SWIR
  • Internal data storage
  • Typical applications: Airborne and ground remote sensing that require coverage between 400-2500nm
