Hyperspectral imaging is a powerful technology that adds a new dimension to optical imaging. The adoption of hyperspectral imaging is still at an early stage, but it has found traction in the agriculture, chemical analysis, and defence sectors. Technological advancements, such as the development of micro-hyperspectral imaging technology, have led to improvements in data acquisition and analysis.

Hyperspectral technology addresses the need for small, lightweight, and efficient hyperspectral imaging instruments that are capable of being deployed in harsh environments. Additionally, there has been an increasing demand for data accuracy and consistency among end-users and the government, as the hyperspectral imaging technology is highly accurate.
