ultra-compact hyperspectral imager

The Hyperspectral cameras are optical engines of the OCI-1000 and OCI-2000 Hyperspectral imagers. It features extreme compactness and fast data transfer rate. The high performance Hyperspectral/Multispectral camera works in push-broom mode or snapshot mode in a compact form factor weighing less than 180 g. These optical engines acquire full, VIS-NIR hyperspectral/multispectral data with high spectral resolution and fast speed. Continuous hyperspectral data capturing can happen at video rates. Compactness, simple operation and optional SDK makes the OCI-OEM integration an effortless task.
