Improved hyperspectral imaging technologies could enable lower-cost analysis for planetary science including atmospheric studies, mineralogical investigations, and geological mapping. Traditionally, multispectral imaging (beyond RGB) requires numerous optical filters, complex spectroscopic instrumentation, or massive systems. A compact system that enables real-time hyperspectral imaging or long-term averaging without moving parts could revolutionize planetary observation techniques.
Nanohmics, Inc. proposes to develop a novel on-chip hyperspectral imaging system for use in planetary missions. The hyperspectral system can be integrated with existing commercial-off-the-shelf imaging systems, providing an immediate route towards commercialization. The compactness will enable the technology to be applied in a variety of mission environments ranging from Flagship-class programs to cubesats.
