Hyperspectral Sensor

Optical Sensors divided into 3 basic classes: Panchromatic, Multispectral, and Hyperspectral.

Multispectral Sensor typically collects a few, wide (100-200 nm), and possibly noncontiguous spectral bands. Hyperspectral sensors typically collect hundreds of narrow (5-20 nm) contiguous bands. The name hyperspectral implies that the spectral sampling exceeds the spectral detail of the target. In practice, this is not always fully achieved, particularly for gaseous spectra.
