Hyperspectral cameras are very powerful sensors already widely used on satellites such as NASA EO-1 with its hyperspectral instrument Hyperion. The characteristics of this sensor are multiple; every pixel of every image taken contains the continuous radiance spectrum over a certain range of wavelengths, which means different values define the single pixel, achieving huge amount…
Hyperspectral sensors are one of the focus of SPECTORS:
the huge amount of information that each image contains can be used for different kinds of analysis and be implemented within object recognition algorithms.
Hyperspectral cameras can be mounted on drones or remotely used on stationary structures and they represent a very powerful tool for precision agriculture.
