Full Range 380 nm - 2500 nm

AisaFENIX is the most versitile HSI unit for field, airborne and ground usage. Optimized for the most demanding geological, law enforcement, and environmental applications, the AisaFENIX delivers the best hyperspectral data ever seen over VNIR, NIR, and SWIR wavelengths.

AisaFENIX is the most versatile HSI unit for field, airborne and ground use. It delivers unprecedented performance over the entire visible, NIR, and SWIR spectral ranges. 

Environmental analysis and law enforcement applications require high quality spectral information at different wavelength areas. This need has previously resulted in complicated and expensive multi-sensor systems. AisaFENIX eliminates the past challenges in “full spectrum imaging”. It is a single optics imager, with two focal plane arrays always staring exactly the same spot of the object. Thus, there is no need for the co-alignment of two separate imagers with different distortions, sharpness, and FOV.

Designed for simplicity, reliability and performance in field usage the AisaFENIX uses a patent pending imaging spectrograph, optimized mechanical structure, and passive temperature compensation to make the instrument one of the most stable hyperspectral imagers. Key benefits include:

  • Entire 380 nm - 2500 nm range in a single datacube.
  • High radiometric stability, repeatability, and performance. Polarization independency, excellent transmission (>65%), high signal-to-noise ratio SNR (500-1000), and spectral resolution (620 bands).
  • Simplicity and reliability in operation. No need for the co-alignment of two separate optical systems with different distortions, sharpness, and FOV.
  • Compact and solid structure - 75% reduction in size and weight compared to previous multi-sensor systems. Ideal for ground and airborne installations, including turrets / gimbals, pan&tilt units, and UAV’s.
  • Optimized performance for environmental, geological, and law enforcement applications, including:
    • vegetation research, precision agriculture, and environmental analysis
    • detection of invasive species, both plants and insects
    • detection of illicit/narcotic plants including marijuana, coca, poppy
    • mineral mapping / geological exploration
