Pika L Hyperspectral Camera

Lightweight, affordable VNIR hyperspectral camera covering 400 – 1000 nm


The Pika L hyperspectral camera from Resonon is a cost-effective, lightweight and compact imager covering the 400 – 1000 nm spectral range, weighing only 0.6 kg. This makes it ideal for drone-based remote sensing applications (see our webpage on the airborne hyperspectral system for details).

The Pika L can also be used with Resonon’s benchtop system for laboratory measurements, and the field system for terrestrial-based outdoor measurements.

All Resonon hyperspectral cameras, including the Pika L, use a pushbroom (i.e. line-scan) approach to imaging.
