Hyperspectral imaging: GK, General Studies and Current Affairs

University of Wisconsin-Madison scientist develops a new pin-sized sensor that can detect dangerous chemicals

The scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the US have developed a novel sensor that can be used in smartphone-sized devices to detect dangerous chemicals based on a unique fingerprint of absorbed and emitted light. Devices called spectrometers are light-splitting instruments that have long been both bulky and expensive, preventing their use outside the ..

Hyperspectral Imaging Satellite

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is planning to launch a full-fledged niche Earth observation (EO) satellite — called the Hyperspectral Imaging Satellite (HySIS). The HySIS satellite has critical chip called an “optical imaging detector array’” indigenously developed by ISRO. ‘Hyspex’ imaging will enable distinct identification of objects, materials or processes on Earth by reading the spectrum ..

ISRO to launch a full-fledged niche Earth observation (EO) satellite “HySIS” to enable distinct identification of objects from space

ISRO will soon launch a full-fledged niche Earth observation (EO) satellite called the Hyperspectral Imaging Satellite (HySIS) by using a critical chip it has developed. The purpose of the HySIS satellite is to enable distinct identification of objects from about 600 km in space. The Vis-NIR Hyperspectral payload of HySIS satellite is a hyperspectral imaging ..
