Hyperspectral Cameras

AisaFENIX VNIR + SWIR Extended Range Camera

AisaFENIX_front_full.jpgFor applications demanding more than just SWIR and VNIR by themselves, Specim has combined both ranges into the AisaFENIX. It delivers unprecedented performance covering 400-2500nm. The FENIX camera represents a breakthrough in hyperspectral remote sensing.

Combined Optical Path

The AisaFENIX solves the problem of co-registering VNIR and SWIR data from two separate cameras by combining them into an instrument with a single fore optics. This means one measurement produces a continuous spectrum from 400-2500nm for optimal spatial and spectral performance.
