High-resolution cameras
Imec’s SNAPSCAN cameras are ideal tools for research inside and outside your lab.
Real-time cameras
Use imec’s SNAPSHOT cameras for real-world applications that require hyperspectral video capabilities.
All cameras
Explore all hyperspectral camera systems.


Do you want to reduce the time and efforts to acquire your hyperspectral data? This payload will help you to reduce flight preparation and flight time. It outputs high-quality stitched hyperspectral cubes, making it easier to develop applications in research projects.

This payload is not off-the-shelf available, the picture is for illustration purposes only. Upon your request, we will custom-develop it from the imec Snapshot UAV VIS+NIR.
