Used in a space exploration support role, hyper-spectral sensors capture reflected energy from observed objects, which is then analyzed to identify attributes not otherwise visible.

Working with NASA, the Institute for Technology Development (ITD) has radically reduced sensor size and eliminated the need for sensor or target motion.

These innovations have opened a range of new diagnostic applications to include bio-medical, forensics, counter terrorism, food safety, and earth imaging markets.

ITD’s systems serve an image sensing market expected to exceed $1.88 billion within the next 12 months.
