Hyperspec(TM) Imaging Products Recognized For Innovation
Fitchburg, MA; March 1, 2007 - Headwall Photonics, the world's leading supplier of high performance integrated spectrometer systems for spectral imaging and chemical sensing solutions, announced that the company's Hyperspec(TM) spectral imaging product line has been awarded the 2006 Frost & Sullivan Product Innovation Award.
Headwall Photonics has been at the forefront of introducing hyperspectral imaging technology for use in commercial, industrial, and life science applications. In support of this strategy, Headwall has introduced off-the-shelf integrated hyperspectral sensor solutions covering the VNIR (400-1000nm), NIR (900-1700nm), and SWIR (1000-2500nm) spectral regions.
According to Headwall's David Bannon, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, "The significance of this award by such a premier research organization is especially noteworthy and gratifying. This recognition serves to underscore the significant engineering investment that Headwall has made in developing and bringing to market our fourth generation hyperspectral imaging sensor which offers unrivalled spectral and spatial performance". All of the Hyperspec(TM) products feature Headwall's patented, aberration-corrected concentric imaging design.
Hyperspectral imaging technology is an established chemical sensing and imaging technology that allows for the spectroscopic analysis of any particular Members of the Headwall Engineering team proudly display the 2006 Product Innovation Award sample or point within a scene of interest. From its introduction during the mid-1980s as a means to conduct remote sensing experiments to its success as a military and defense sensor technology, hyperspectral imaging is poised for rapid adoption in commercial markets involving complex manufacturing of chemical materials and products.
