Headwall Photonics announces that its Hyperspec sensor has been chosen by UTC Aerospace Systems (formerly Goodrich Corporation) for the Senior Year Electro-Optical Reconnaissance Sensor (SYERS-2) platform. SYERS-2 is currently used on the U.S. Air Force U-2 Dragon Lady for very high altitude reconnaissance missions.

Headwall's hyperspectral sensor will provide SYERS-2 with enhanced intelligence and surveillance capabilities.

The Headwall Hyperspec imaging sensor was selected based on the demanding imaging performance needed for advanced sensor surveillance capabilities.

Key attributes of the selected Hyperspec sensor platform are optimized signal-to-noise performance as well as customized spectral and spatial resolution, all tightly coupled with a spectral processing system.

Hyperspectral imaging represents a critical sensing technology that allows DoD organizations to identify an object within the field of view of the sensor based on the target's chemical fingerprint or spectral signature rather than relying solely on visual appearance.

"Headwall's products continue to be recognized and deployed in critical application areas - for both defense and industrial applications," stated David Bannon, CEO of Headwall Photonics.

"We offer our customers a compelling value proposition of product performance, optimization, and collaboration."

Based on a patented, aberration-corrected sensor design, Headwall's High Efficiency Hyperspec sensors are specifically designed for operations in very harsh operating environments.
