NASA NASA's ER-2 high-altitude research aircraft wrapped up the fall 2013 series of flights during the first week in December for the Hyperspectral Infrared Imager, or HyspIRI, airborne campaign. The Airborne Visible / Infrared Imaging Spectrometer, or AVIRIS, developed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the MODIS / ASTER Airborne Simulator, or MASTER, developed jointly by JPL, NASA Ames Research Center and the Earth Resources Observation and Science Center, are mounted in the ER-2...

NASA To Robert Green, light contains more than meets the eye: It contains fingerprints of materials that can be detected by sensors that capture the unique set of reflected wavelengths. Scientists have used the technique, called imaging spectroscopy, to learn about water on the moon, minerals on Mars and the composition of exoplanets. Green's favorite place to apply the technique, however, is right here on the chemically rich Earth, which is just what he and colleagues achieved this spring...

Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Air Force to develop a high spatial resolution hyperspectral sensor operating in the longwave infrared (LWIR) spectral band. A prototype system will be demonstrated as part of the Air Force Research Laboratory´s ongoing efforts to improve target acquisition and threat assessment to protect both civilian and military assets. Newton, Massachusetts (PRWEB) January 22, 2013 Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC...

Scheduled to fly for a year, designed to last a year and a half, EO-1 celebrated its tenth anniversary on November 21, 2010. During its decade in space, the satellite has accomplished far more than anyone dreamed. "Earth-Observing-1 has had three missions," says mission manager Dan Mandl of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Its original mission was to test new technologies, a mission completed in the first year. Its second mission was to provide images and data. Its third...

After several decades of research and development into hyperspectral imaging, which greatly enhances our ability to characterize the state of Earth, the technique has been embraced by the Earth-observation community and has entered the mainstream of remote sensing. The idea behind hyperspectral imaging, also known as imaging spectroscopy, is simple. In the 1970s, multispectral remote sensors produced images with relatively few broad wavelength bands that allowed us to understand our...
