Spectral Image Scanning --
Like photo scanners and fax machines, spectral cameras and AISA instruments are line imaging instruments - spectral information is only imaged one line at a time across your object or scene.


In airborne instruments, the motion of the aircraft traces out the 2nd spatial dimension over time - a pushbrooming instrument.

 

To use spectral cameras in from a stationary ground point, laboratory, or other static situation, the object or the camera's field-of-view has to be linearly scanned.

The scanner add-on provides the single axis movement to trace out spatial images with full spectral information - 3-dimensional spectral data cubes.

For related details, see the Color Quality page on spectral imaging for industrial applications.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

APPLICATION
NOTES

Spectral imaging & profiling can also be accomplished by moving objects or material.


In this application, a conveyor moves material under the spectral imaging system, which is used for on-line color or process control.



The scanning add-on hardware to the spectral cameras allow scene scanning for ground truthing support of airborne flights, environmental uses, and other applications.
