Bodkin Design to Showcase Hyperspectral Technology at Photonics West

Detection of smoke plume using spectral imaging

The takeaway is that Cubert users can, within five minutes, record spectral images, create statistical classifiers for specific materials, and deploy the solution processing in a live data stream.

Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC will be exhibiting at Photonics West in San Francisco this January. Bodkin Design will be demonstrating the FireflEYE S185, along with new software capability, at their exhibition booth. The system is used extensively in UAVs for precision agriculture, and by other researchers, agronomists, geologists, chemists, and manufacturers to deliver unprecedented datasets for chemical analysis, quality control, pollution monitoring, and more.

Snapshot hyperspectral technology allows spectral and spatial information to be collected simultaneously into a 3-dimensional dataset or as a video stream yielding a 4-dimensional dataset. Snapshot spectral imaging can be accomplished in many ways; however, the patented Hyperpixel ArrayTM method employed in the Cubert FireflEYETM system benefits users with its ability to collect spectral information without temporal or spatial disparity that plagues scanning slit or filter array instruments.

Not only will the FireflEYE imager be on display, but Cubert GmbH plans to unveil their latest software interface. The new interface comes with the 2.1.0. Fuchsia software release, which comes tightly integrated with a new automatic classification toolbox. Users may install perClass Toolbox for Matlab® directly via the Cubert installer. Multi- and hyperspectral images, acquired by the complete range of Cubert cameras, may be directly imported into the perClass environment. A rich set of interactive visualization, data modeling and classification tools are available for rapid development.

Director of Sales at Cubert GmbH, Matthias Locherer, says, “The takeaway is that Cubert users can, within five minutes, record spectral images, create statistical classifiers for specific materials, and deploy the solution processing in a live data stream.” Bodkin Design’s principal, Andrew Bodkin, stated, “The unveiling of Cubert’s new software interface at Photonics West will allow our customers to make better use of…
