What are hyperspectral sources?

In the catalog, a hyperspectral source is one that can be used to monitor a relevant spectrum of the test article using only a single-point receiver as shown.

Hyperspectral sources can be used in many configurations. Mouse over the headings below to see some possible schematic examples. If you experience problems, static versions of the images can be viewed by disabling Javascript and reloading the page.
