Key Features

  • This version of the HyperScan VNIR micro is stripped of any extraneous components, including the housing. We can provide custom layouts and wiring, or we can provide generic wiring for customer customization. The UltraLight can be fully controlled from a ground station, sending back 3-band false color or monochrome waterfall images. If bandwidth is at a premium, essential functionality to capture, display, and save images can be transmitted via UDP
