ESA is an international organisation with 22 Member States. By coordinating the financial and intellectual resources of its members, it can undertake programmes and activities far beyond the scope of any single European country.
ESA’s job is to draw up the European space programme and carry it through. ESA's programmes are designed to find out more about Earth, its immediate space environment, our Solar System and the Universe, as well as to develop satellite-based technologies and services, and to promote European industries. ESA also works closely with space organisations outside Europe.
|Booth 12: Headwall Photonics |
Headwall produces hyperspectral and multispectral imaging solutions for remote sensing applications. Headwall’s all-reflective concentric optical designs feature high spectral and spatial resolution, a wide field of view, high signal-to-noise, and aberration correction. Spectral ranges include visible-near-infrared (VNIR, 400-1000nm), near-infrared (NIR, 900-1700nm), and shortwave-infrared (SWIR, 900-2500nm). Sensors can be mounted aboard UAVs and aircraft, and small-satellite configurations from Headwall are in low-earth-orbit now. Headwall’s VNIR-SWIR sensor covers the 400-2500nm range with co-registered pixels. A new chlorophyll fluorescence sensor targets the 670-780nm VNIR range with very high resolution. Headwall’s integrated solutions include UAV, sensor, GPS/IMU, all software, and LiDAR if needed.
