Pika XC2 Hyperspectral Camera

High-performance VNIR hyperspectral camera covering 400 – 1000 nm



The Pika XC2 hyperspectral camera is Resonon’s highest precision Visible+Near-Infrared (VNIR) imager covering the 400 – 1000 nm spectral range. It has higher spatial and spectral resolutions than the Pika L hyperspectral camera.

The Pika XC2 is ideal for researchers who need high-precision laboratory data.  The Pika XC2 can also be used with our field system for terrestrial-based outdoor measurements, and our airborne system for remote sensing applications (although it weighs more than the Pika L hyperspectral camera, which is designed for drone-based remote sensing).

Because of its higher precision the Pika XC2 generates very large datasets.  Resonon’s hyperspectral software provides hardware and software binning capabilities in both the spatial and spectral dimensions, enabling smaller data volume when reduced resolutions are acceptable.

All Resonon hyperspectral cameras, including the Pika XC2, use a pushbroom (i.e. line-scan) approach to imaging.
