Hyperia is a NIREOS project. The goal is to develop an innovative camera capable of measuring not just the colour of objects around us, but their entire light spectrum for each pixel of the two-dimensional field of view.
Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) cameras are typically limited by their bulk size, high cost, poor sensitivity and limited spectral coverage, covering either the visible or the near-infrared portion of the spectrum.
The breakthrough innovation in HYPERIA is constituted by NIREOS’ core and proprietary technology: time-domain Fourier-transform spectroscopy, a radically different paradigm with respect to competitors. This will enable the development of a HSI system with a hitherto inaccessible level of sensitivity even in low-light illumination conditions, covering a dramatically wider wavelength range from the visible to the short-wavelength infrared (SWIR).
VIS-SWIR spectrum range (400-1700nm) to capture both visible and non-visible features.
Wide range of applications such as: food testing, fine art restoration, plastic sorting, remote sensing, material science and microbiology.
One device only: no need to use multiple costly devices since HYPERIA covers both VIS and SWIR spectrum in a single device.
HYPERIA provides a comprehensive hyperspectral data in a single device, saving time-consuming integration to merge data.

HYPERIA has proven its excellence in assessing leafy freshness, particularly in lettuce and basil. Through rigorous validation tests, it demonstrated high performance in capturing hyperspectral images under varying storage conditions. The device’s superior resolution, signal-to-noice ratio, and sensitivity enable precise identification of chlorophyll and water concentrations at different wavelengths such as 970, 1200 and 1450 nm.
