Pika IR Hyperspectral Camera

Affordable infrared hyperspectral camera from Resonon covering 900 – 1700 nm



The Pika IR is Resonon’s most affordable and fastest near-infrared (NIR) hyperspectral camera. The Pika IR covers the 900 – 1700 nm spectral range with a 4.9 nm resolution. It is capable of high speeds (508 fps) and has excellent image quality.

The Pika IR is an inexpensive option for researchers who need near-infrared hyperspectral imaging data. To suit you requirements, the Pika IR is also available as part of our laboratory benchtop system, outdoor system, and airborne remote sensing system. If very high precision data is required then the Pika IR + is recommended.

All Resonon hyperspectral cameras, including the Pika IR, use a pushbroom (i.e. line-scan) approach to imaging. In line-scan imaging, the camera images the object one line at a time. The camera then scans over the object, or vice versa, and collects lots of lines of images to create a two-dimensional image of the object.
