HyperScape100

The HyperScape100 is pushing boundaries with an unprecedented leap in optical payload technology. Covering the visible and near-IR spectral range in 32 bands at a bandwidth of 4% of the central wavelength at below 5 m GSD.

Seeing spectral detail in every pixel.

The HyperScape100 is engineered to bring hyperspectral capabilities to nanosatellites. This imager is based on a 12.6-megapixel image sensor and a continuous variable filter in the visible and near-infrared (VNIR) spectral range. The Hyperscape100 provides continuous line-scan imaging in up to 32 bands, each with digital time delay integration (TDI).
