Hyperspectral imaging is today’s technology to reveal the invisible, to generate an in depth understanding of phenomena and objects studied. The technology is used increasingly in many research areas, such as life sciences, vegetation research, forensics, food analysis, and mineral research. In each application area the hyperspectral scanner is used to to identify, measure and map the biological, chemical and physical properties of the objects depicted. Specim technology provides extreme reliability and performance. Measurements can be accurately performed hundreds of times faster than with the competing technologies.
In the early 1990’s, thanks to more than 10 years of intensive scientific research done by the VTT Technical Research Centre, the SPECIM Founders designed the first professional hyperspectral spectrographs and imagers. These first commercially available spectrographs were developed in close collaboration with NASA to meet the requirements of the most advanced applications in remote sensing. To this day, in order to reach the high-ends of precision, durability and functionality, SPECIM has been in the forefront with new technological solutions applied to hyperspectral imaging.
SPECIM is WIWAM’s preferred partner for the integration of hyperspectral imaging systems in plant phenotying platforms.
