Headwall provides a complete and fully integrated airborne solution comprising GPS/INS, data-processing, and applications software.
For airborne remote sensing applications, Headwall brings together a completely integrated package designed to work with your choice of Hyperspec® sensor. The package includes GPS/INS functionality (LiDAR optional), integrated data-processing hardware, and Headwall’s Hyperspec III airborne applications software that manages the operation of the sensor throughout flight. The entire package has been optimized for small size and light weight, and all elements are fully integrated. Headwall Remote Sensing
Headwall offers both multi-rotor and fixedwing UAV solutions to meet a very broad range of application needs.
Headwall’s Micro-Hyperspec® sensors address the need for very small, lightweight, and robust hyperspectral imaging instruments capable of being deployed in harsh environments. The sensors are particularly well suited for applications where high spectral/spatial resolution and high dynamic range are key performance parameters. Micro-Hyperspec® G-Series covers the 400-1000nm VNIR spectral range; other versions are also available for the NIR (900-1700nm), Extended VNIR (550-1700nm) and SWIR (950-2500nm) ranges. Headwall’s patented aberration-corrected optics assure best resolution, high signal to noise and flight-path efficiency thanks to a very wide field-of-view.
Headwall also provides complete hyperspectral data-processing as part of the overall airborne package. This includes the advanced Hyperspec III software, which manages sensor control and all incoming hyperspectral data. Headwall also has an on-line map-based ‘Polygon Tool’ that allows users to select the parameters for sensor operation while aloft.
Perhaps no other area of scientific interest suggestshyperspectral than the field of remote sensing. Remote sensing encompasses a wide range of applications, from commercial satellites focused on earth research to low-flying aircraft and UAVs used for precision agriculture. Many environmental secrets have been unlocked thanks to the precision and capability of Headwall’s hyperspectral sensor solutions.
Environmental biologists, geologists, and crop scientists are using Headwall’s technology to move their research efforts forward. The planting and harvesting of crops is one such application. Searching for resources such as gas and oil is another. Mining and mineral exploration—drill core analysis—represents a third. And helping to mitigate the effects of ecological disasters is yet another area where hyperspectral sensors can play a vital role.
