Hyperspectral and Multispectral Imaging

Introduction to Hyperspectral and Multispectral Cameras

Hyperspectral Camera acquires a 2D image where every pixel in the image contains a continuous spectrum. A regular camera records three spectral channels in every pixel (red, green, and blue), while hyperspectral imagers record hundreds of spectral channels.

Hyperspectral and Multispectral Cameras are useful because different materials have unique reflectance spectra, as do different plant species. Hyperspectral images can thus be used to identify various constituents in an image. Hyperspectral and Multispectral Imaging is also used to detect shifts in reflectance spectra due to external influences, for example crop health effects due to drought and insect infestation.

We design and produce hyperspectral imaging cameras capable of measuring from Near Ultraviolet wavelengths into Short Wave Infrared wavelengths.


The crop water stress index (CWSI) was developed (in 1981) as a normalized index to quantify stress and overcome the effects of other environmental parameters affecting the relationship between stress and plant temperature. Workswell’s WIRIS Agro is the first device of its kind designed to map water stress across large areas in the field of precision agriculture. The aim of this method and device is to determine the value of water stress in the plant stand. For example, this information may be used to determine yield maps, optimize irrigation, or control water management remedies. Camera offers LWIR band sensor and 10x optical zoom RGB camera with resolution full HD (1920 x 1080 px) for biomass cover index evaluation.


Resonon's airborne systems are completely integrated turnkey solutions, with all the hardware and software necessary to acquire georegistered hyperspectral data.


Hyperspectral imaging system for laboratory measurements.


Hyperspectral imaging system for outdoor measurements.


The Hyper-Cam is a lightweight and compact hyperspectral imaging sensor which uses Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) technology.


The Hyper-Cam Methane is a unique, high performance, thermal hyperspectral imaging camera designed for real-time detection and identification of methane (CH4) gas leaks and emissions.


The Hyper-Cam can be used as an advanced hyperspectral imaging solution for airborne infrared spectroscopy.


The MS-IR multispectral infrared cameras allow to split the scene radiance into eight spectral bands rather than only one broadband image hereby allowing spectral analysis.


CMS Multispetral cameras are designed for easy integration into VIS/NIR multispectral systems. These lightweight (less than 60gr) and very small footprint (52x52x22mm) cameras split the image into 8 spectral bands plus 1 B&W channel.
