Hyperspectral Imaging and Vision Application Solutions
ADL Embedded Solutions, Inc Posted 12/04/2020
A leading supplier of hyperspectral imaging systems was looking for an MCOTS system solution that provides high-speed data processing and storage in one compact enclosure, designed for airborne environments. In critical hyperspectral imaging applications, continuous streams of incoming data represent the chemical or spectral ‘fingerprint’ within the field of view. Because hyperspectral imaging involves high-speed scanning across a wide or continuous field of view, large data files (often several gigabytes in size) need to be collected and managed.
Data cube acquisition and analysis is integral to effective hyperspectral imaging. Hyperspectral sensors collect information as a set of ‘images’. Each image represents a range of the electromagnetic spectrum and is also known as a spectral band. These ‘images’ are then combined and form a three?dimensional hyperspectral data cube for processing and analysis. Because hyperspectral imaging involves high?speed scanning across a wide or continuous field of view, large data files (often several gigabytes in size) need to be collected and managed.
Computer Vision and Framegrabbers
For applications other than hyperspectral such as Infrared or regular computer vision, a tremendous amount of data?gathering and analysis is still the norm via a number of pathways including multi?port Gig?E, Cameralink and high?definition framegrabbers.
ADL Embedded Solutions’ Intel® Core™ i7?based platform handles these tasks effortlessly with dual and quad Intel Core i7 processing options coupled with an ADLPS104 150W ATX power supply, SATA SSD capable of write speeds in excess of 500MB/s, and ecosystem of compatible PCIe/104 cameralink, Gig?E, and framegrabbing options.
