Pika IR-L+ Hyperspectral Camera
925 – 1700 nm Lightweight, High-Precision Infrared Hyperspectral Imager
The Pika IR-L+ hyperspectral imager is a high spatial and spectral resolution Near-Infrared (925-1,700 nm) hyperspectral camera in a lightweight, compact format. It is well suited for field research, yet compatible with all imaging platforms (airborne, benchtop, or outdoor).
Please contact us for product and pricing information.
For a compact, lightweight Visible light spectral range option 400 – 1000nm, please see the Pika L.
For higher imaging speeds in 925-1700nm spectral range, please see the Pika IR-L.
What is hyperspectral imaging?
Hyperspectral imaging yields more accurate color and
material identification by providing far more detailed information for each pixel as compared to
conventional imaging such as a color camera. In contrast to a color camera that has only three
channels, the light signal is divided into many tens to hundreds of bands or channels. As
discussed below, this additional resolution improves machine vision accuracy, often
Hyperspectral imaging sounds like something new, but it is really just a logical extension of
conventional spectroscopy. A spectrometer spreads a light beam into a continuous band of
“colors.” This can be done with a prism, for example.
The bands of colors taken together is
referred to as a spectrum of the light beam, and the study or use of light spectra is called
spectroscopy. A hyperspectral imager acts like hundreds of spectrometers in parallel, which
provides a spectral curve for each pixel in a scene.
