Putting spectral imaging to work --

REMOTE SENSING

Deliveries of instruments:

  • VNIR instruments
  • dual sensor (VNIR/SWIR)
  • compact VNIR for stabilized gimbal operation

installed upon airplanes, helicopters, and remotely piloted aircraft.

MANUFACTURING & INDUSTRY
Spectral imaging works for color management where color cameras have no chance for consistency

  • automotive
    paints
    dashboard skins
    matching of color parts, specializing in dark color palette
    gray vs. charcoal
    midnight blue vs. black
  • absence of metal coatings on steel
  • web material and carpet color consistency
  • wood color grading
  • pharmaceuticals
  • PET bottle manufacturing

Mineral Studies & Research
Near (NIR) and short-wave infrared (SWIR) wavelengths reveal even more information than what eyes reveal

  • separation of Feldspars from quartz aggregates
  • mineralogy
  • identification of minerals along fault lines for seismology

more to come on mineral identification at mining and drilling sites

BIOMEDICAL & MICROSCOPY
Spectral microscopy with controlled staging

  • spectral scanning systems for use in burn research -
  • spectral microscopy with
    - integrated support for X-Y microscope staging
    - subpixel spectral unmixing to help detect specific spectral endmembers (such as dyes or other base materials)

PLATFORM SCANNING SYSTEMS

APPLICATION IMAGES

Spectral analysis of airborne images

Spectral Terrain Mapping

Remote sensing imagery is collected, then geo-rectified to lat/long map positions.


PHARMACEUTICALS

Vials with high concentrations of active ingredients are removed from production.
