Key Quality Parameters

This section describes the key quality parameters which are essential to consider when comparing and choosing the hyperspectral imager which is best for your specific purpose.

Top-level specifications for hyperspectral imaging systems (such as number of spatial pixels, number of spectral bands, F#, frame rate, weight, and dimensions) may, at first sight, seem trivial to compare. However, as in the case of consumer cameras in which the number of megapixels, F# and focal length do not tell you very much about how well the system actually performs, the previously mentioned top-level specifications are insufficient to thoroughly describe a hyperspectral system.

This section describes several performance parameters and considerations to take into account when comparing seemingly similar systems.
