Headwall technology used in remote sensing satellite mission
Headwall Photonics has completed the design, manufacture, and test of the space-qualified hyperspectral sensor payload for NT Space.
The Headwall sensor systems have been delivered to NT Space for integration onto one of the world’s foremost remote sensing satellite missions.
With this hyperspectral space platform, Headwall has introduced a new class of hyperspectral imaging sensors specifically designed for small satellite payloads that offer the industry’s highest optical efficiency and widest field of view.
The Hyperspec Space sensors offer government programs and commercial satellite providers the ability to cost-effectively deliver new data services and imagery with a very small, affordable sensor payload that covers the VNIR (380-1000nm) and SWIR (950-2500nm) spectral regions.
With many years as an instrument supplier to NASA, Headwall was selected by NT Space to manufacture spectral imaging instrumentation in support of the scientific and remote sensing applications of the Japanese satellite mission.
Japan’s satellite will offer the world’s first commercial hyperspectral data service products. Hyperspectral imagery is a critical technology in that it offers the remote sensing community the ability to detect not only the presence of objects but also identify, characterise, and quantify objects within the field of view of the satellite.
The TerraLuma project is bringing hyperspectral technology to its fleet of unmanned aircraft systems.
Headwall has introduced its Hyperspec starter kit designed for the 250nm-600nm UV-VIS spectral band.
Headwall Photonics has been selected by NEC Space Systems Division of Japan to develop the hyperspectral instrument payload for a Japanese remote sensing satellite.
