Partners tuning up for innovation success

A new project to drive advances in hyperspectral imaging technology for defence applications has commenced.

The work is part of DMTC’s High Altitude Sensor Systems (HASS) Program.

The project will be led by Professor Rob Sharp from the Advanced Instrumentation Technology Centre (AITC) at The Australian National University (ANU) and hosted at Mount Stromlo Observatory.

The project is a collaboration involving DMTC, researchers from ANU and CSIRO and industrial partner Skykraft, a small business formed out of the UNSW Canberra Space team.

Once proven, the technology will provide Defence with critical visibility of littoral environments (the land-sea boundary zone), with direct applications for navigation, hydrographic survey and information gathering from denied or contested access areas.
