In the early 1990’s, thanks to more than 10 years of intensive scientific research done by the VTT Technical Research Centre, the SPECIM Founders designed the first professional hyperspectral spectrographs and imagers. These first commercially available spectrographs were developed in close collaboration with NASA to meet the requirements of the most advanced applications in remote sensing.
To this day, in order to reach the high-ends of precision, durability and functionality, SPECIM has been in the forefront with new technological solutions applied to hyperspectral imaging. World class research, business, and defense organizations are relying on Specim quality when performance and reliability matters.
Today, SPECIM’s in-depth hyperspectral knowledge and extensive expertise in optical engineering are unmatched. More than 4 000 instruments and spectrographs delivered and in daily use, SPECIM continues as the technological leader in the realm of hyperspectral imaging.
