Brimrose offer two hyperspectral imaging products, the VA210 Video Imaging Adapter and the IS510-0.9-1.7 Hyperspectral Imager.
The VA210 Series of Hyperspectral Imagers are designed to measure visible or NIR hyperspectral imaging data remotely on a variety of materials. The IS510 series SWIR Hyperspectral Imager is designed for SWIR spectral imaging. This custom module is designed for field portable applications where the SWIR camera is integrated with the AOTF module.
Watch the video demos below to help you learn Brimrose Hyperspectral Imagers. The first narrated video demo gives an overview of a few real-time applications using Brimrose hyperspectral imagers. The subsequent videos demonstrate specific applications for our hyperspectral imagers.
The video demo gives an overview of a few real-time applications of Brimrose hyperspectral imagers. These applications include scanning liquid samples, analysing and collecting data, quickly identifying unknown vapor emissions at a distance, laser targeting, biological and chemical imager, etc.
The video demonstrates Brimrose SWIR Hyperspectral Imager scanning across wavelength band of 900-1700nm (or 950-1400nm). Brimrose SWIR hyperspectral imager is doing cloud analysis by a water tower near Brimrose's headquarters. Some of the clouds appear or disappear depending on the scanning wavelength. Spectral peaks can be seen for the overhead clouds. The moisture band around 1400nm (nanometers) significantly inhibits viewing.
Brimrose offers VA210 Series of AOTF Imaging Video Adapter for measuring visible or NIR hyperspectral imaging data remotely on a variety of materials. The video adapter is suitable for microscopic and general laboratory analysis. Using the Brimrose AOTF visible imager, the onion epidermis and pine stem included in this video are viewed under a variety of different color shades. They visibly fade and reappear depending on the spectrum of their particular colors as the imager sweeps across the visible spectrum range.
This video demonstrates Brimrose AOTF SWIR Hyperspectral Imager results for identifying unknown vapor emissions at 0.5 kilometer over wavelength band of 900-1700nm. By matching unknown vapors to known results, the hyperspectral imager can quickly identify what chemicals the smoke consists of. Brimrose also can provide aerial mounting for the imagers to fly through unknown hazardous areas. The imagers, which have no hysteresis and can operate at low temperatures, also can operate some distance from the subject and still provide a solid signature. In this video, the distance is half a kilometer.
This video demonstrates Brimrose IS510 SWIR Hyperspectral Imager, a rugged unit with no physically moving parts, testing five liquids in the short wavelength infrared spectrum. These include vinegar, gasoline, silicone oil, water and acetone. Brighter pixels reflect higher transmission spectral values. Acquisition speed of the system was 30 fps (video includes pauses at spectral peaks), with 200 total spectral points collected. A graph of the samples' center-weighted spectra is given at the end of the video. Differing absorption/transmission bands of the samples can be clearly seen, especially between water-based and oil-based groups.
The video demonstrates Brimrose AOTF Imaging System (BAOTFIS) software helping interpret and understand the data, and putting the customer in control. The customer can determine what spectrum is to be studied and how rapidly the wavelengths are to be imaged. The BAOTFIS software allows users to acquire hyperspectral data cubes and save them in either .txt or .png format. Direct and real-time control of the AOTF driver and camera are available via the application’s Graphical User Interface.
