Hyper-Cam Mini xLW

Telops' Hyper-Cam Mini xLW stands out as a compact yet powerful infrared hyperspectral imaging system, ideal for remote sensing tasks in challenging environments. It offers unparalleled precision in the detection and analysis of various targets.


The Hyper-Cam Mini xLW, a groundbreaking innovation from Telops, is a compact infrared hyperspectral imaging system that sets a new standard in the field of remote sensing. This system is uniquely designed to combine high spatial, spectral, and temporal resolution, making it an ideal tool for a wide range of remote detection, identification, and quantification tasks. Its small Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) characteristics render it exceptionally suitable for use in hard-to-reach locations, facilitating high-quality infrared spectral imaging measurements in environments where traditional systems might not be feasible.

The Hyper-Cam Mini xLW stands out for its sensitivity over an expanded spectral range, which is crucial for accurately measuring gas and mineral targets, including those previously inaccessible or difficult to detect. This expanded range opens new possibilities for researchers and professionals in various fields, including environmental monitoring, geological exploration, and defense applications. The ability to detect substances like Freon 22 from a distance of 350 meters in real-time and quantify leak rates exemplifies the system’s practical application in environmental studies and industrial monitoring.

This advanced system is equipped with state-of-the-art standoff imaging Fourier-transform spectrometer technology, allowing for detailed and precise spectral analysis from a distance. The wide spectral range of 7.5 – 12.4 µm, combined with a user-selectable spectral resolution of up to 4 cm-1, ensures that the Hyper-Cam Mini xLW can capture a comprehensive range of spectral information with high accuracy. The inclusion of a 320 × 256-pixel Stirling-cooled focal plane array detector further enhances the system’s imaging capabilities, providing high spatial resolution and excellent 2D image quality.

The versatility of the Hyper-Cam Mini xLW is further amplified by its design and additional features. It comes with a field-of-view (FOV) of 14 × 11°, and sub-windowing capabilities allow users to adjust the FOV to fit their specific needs. The system’s flexibility is also evident in its removable SSD 2 TB data recording capability, integrated GPS, and Wi-Fi connectivity. These features, combined with the system’s robust components – including an optical head, a control & processing unit, a Toughbook computer, integrated calibration sources, a 1920 × 1200 visible color camera for recording and co-visualization, the Reveal Software Suite, and a sturdy tripod mount – make the Hyper-Cam Mini xLW a highly adaptable and user-friendly system.

In essence, the Hyper-Cam Mini xLW by Telops is more than an imaging system; it represents a leap forward in compact, high-performance hyperspectral imaging technology. It’s a system designed for versatility and accuracy, opening new frontiers in remote sensing and hyperspectral imaging.
