Abstract
Recently, DRDC Valcartier has been investigating longwave hyperspectral imaging (HSI) remote sensing techniques using airborne sensors. There is currently an initiative to test the commercially available ground-based Hyper-Cam HSI system, developed by Telops, on a stabilized airborne platform with an integrated image motion compensation capability. The Hyper-Cam is also based on the Fourier-transform technology yielding high spectral resolution and enabling high accuracy radiometric calibration. It provides passive signature measurement capability, with up to 320x256 pixels at spectral resolutions of up to 0.25 cm¹. To our knowledge, the Hyper-Cam is the first commercial airborne hyperspectral imaging sensor based on Fouriertransform infrared technology. Airborne measurements and some preliminary performance criteria for the Hyper-Cam are presented in this paper.
