Recent Patents in Signal Processing (January 2014) - Hyperspectral Imaging

For our December 2013 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of hyperspectral imaging. Below, we consider several recent inventions pertaining to the imaging (sensing) of hyperspectral images, randomized algorithms for data acquisition, dimensionality reduction and compression, and applications of the acquired hyperspectral data. For additional articles about recent research in this area, we direct the reader to the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine's recent Special Issue on Signal and Image Processing in Hyperspectral Remote Sensing.
