First Spaceborne Hyperspectral Imager Will Use QImaging Rolera-MGi EMCCD Camera
Date:9/10/2009

QImaging's Rolera MGi scientific camera is being launched into space today as part of a Hyperspectral Imager that collects images from the International Space Station. The Naval research Laboratory (NRL) chose the Rolera MGi because of its high sensitivity, uniformity and readout speed -- ideal for capturing spectrum output. NASA will transmit the data to the NRL, which will then distribute the images with the help of The Oregon State University and other collaborating institutions.

Surrey, British Columbia (PRWEB) September 10, 2009 -- QImaging, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance, easy-to-use digital cameras for life science and industrial applications, announced that its Rolera-MGi camera will be launched into space today as part of the Hyperspectral Imager for the Coastal Ocean (HICO) to take pictures of the earth's coasts and oceans. Developed by the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), the HICO--the first hyperspectral space imager optimized for the coastal environment--will collect maritime hyperspectral images from the International Space Station.

Institutions including the NRL have typically flown hyperspectral imagers in airplanes to remotely capture information of the landscape below them. Able to process the entire electromagnetic spectrum, applications of hyperspectral imagers include identifying mineral deposits and monitoring the health of crops. The move to space will enable the HICO to capture a much greater area--up to 8,000 square kilometers of coastal ocean.

An imager in space requires a very high sensitivity for capturing dark coastal scenes. This is one reason the NRL chose
