Spectrum Photonics, Inc., develops standoff and remote sensors systems to detect and identify chemical compounds for military and commercial interests. Our compact, lightweight systems use advanced hyperspectral imaging (HSI) and optical sensing technologies to provide trace level detection and analysis.

Since its founding in 2008, Spectrum Photonics has been awarded more than twenty SBIR Phase I, II, and III contracts as well as other DoD sponsored awards. Under these contracts, Spectrum Photonics has developed custom hyperspectral imaging and optical sensors for use in handheld, terrestrial, aerial, and underwater detection and identification operations. Each system’s size, weight, and power (SWaP) trade-offs are optimized for the specific application.

Spectrum Photonics owns the exclusive rights to the Sagnac-based hyperspectral imaging technology and ancillary detection algorithms invented and patented at the University of Hawaii.
