Resonon's hyperspectral cameras are line-scan imagers. 2-dimensional images are constructed by translating the sample relative to the camera. This is accomplished in Resonon's outdoor field system by placing the camera on a tripod and rotating the camera.



The linear stage holds the sample and translates across the field of view. Used for small samples that are easy to move.
