Small Particles Cause Big Problems 

Disruptive particles are everywhere and they propagate faster than the world’s ability to identify, detect, and mitigate them. Think COVID-19, Tuberculosis, or dangerous contaminants in food and water.

HyperSpectral APD is helping the world get ahead of toxic particles and show-stopping pathogens to improve the health of people and our planet.

We are a data analytics company supported by our patent pending spectrographic detection technology. We bring novel approaches to micro-particle & pathogen detection and characterization.

ABOUT US

HyperSpectral APD, LLC was established with a mission of detecting COVID-19 faster than the world’s current capabilities. We have made great progress on our novel particle detection technology. 

On the path to detect viruses, which are among the smallest of pathogens, we discovered our ability to identify many other particles that also threaten the health of people and the planet. We are now pushing a broader mission and will leverage our sensor fusion capabilities with our cloud-enabled platform and ML to enable unprecedented access to our rich store of optical data.
