Abstract
Airborne hyperspectral imagers have been available from various providers for many years and their performance keeps improving. On the other hand, space-based hyperspectral sensors have only been available from few exploratory missions such as NASA Hyperion on EO-1 (Pearlman et al, 2003) and ESA CHRIS on Proba (Cutter et al, 2003). In recent years, there have been many civilian space missions being planned in different countries (Buckingham & Staenz, 2008), as well as military space demonstration (Cooley et al, 2006). Given the increase in potential space-based hyperspectral sensors, Defence R&D Canada (DRDC), which is part of the Canadian department of National defence, began in 2005 a project to demonstrate the military utility of space-based reflective hyperspectral imagery (0.4-2.5 microns) to the Canadian Forces (CF). The project is called HYperspectral iMage Exploitation (HYMEX) and ended its activities in 2010 (Ardouin et al, 2007)
