HySpex VNIR-1024

The HySpex VNIR-1024 hyperspectral camera, developed for field, laboratory, and airborne applications, combines extreme acquisition speeds with no compromise on data quality.

The high frame rate makes the VNIR-1024 an ideal camera for low altitude flights or other applications where high frame rates and high radiometric accuracy is required. Like all HySpex cameras, the HySpex VNIR-1024 is rigorously tested and calibrated to traceable standards during production. A wide range of lenses allows the use of the camera at working distances ranging from a few centimeters with a spatial resolution of 42 μm, to infinity e.g. airborne remote sensing

HySpex Classic VNIR-1024 configuration

For lab and field use, a scanning stage is needed to scan the cameras and build the hyperspectral data cube of the scene. A user-friendly table-top lab setup with translation stage, VNIR-SWIR light sources, and close-up lenses can also be supplied for scanning of samples of varying sizes. The scanning speed is automatically controlled by the data acquisition unit, based on the selected lens option. The lab rack includes a camera adjustment platform, to facilitate camera focus adjustment when using different close-up lenses.


For field operations, HySpex supplies a range of high precision rotation stages tailored to fit the specific operational scenario.

Long-life Li-ion battery powered solutions are available for increased portability.

To ensure stable and reliable acquisitions in challenging field conditions, rugged and portable tripods are supplied. HySpex supplies a variety of tripods with pan/tilt heads that will accommodate the camera payload and rotation stage used.

High resolution and high speed, combined with low weight and power consumption, make NEO’s HySpex cameras very well suited for airborne data acquisition.

Position- and attitude logging systems (IMU/GPS) from leading manufacturers can be integrated and supplied with the cameras. Alternatively, the HySpex systems can be interfaced with the customer’s existing navigational hardware.

For airborne systems, NEO supplies dedicated software and a touch screen for ease of operation.
