JB Hyperspectral Devices is a start-up company founded in 2016 and based in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The primary working focus is the design and production of advanced hyperspectral field instruments. The company is devoted to the reliable, accurate and long-term measure of sun-induced-fluorescence and provides this to researchers.

JB´s systems have further been used to monitor more environmental variables such as water quality, snow optical properties and plant phenology.

Aside the manufacturing, an established international collaboration with universities, research centres and space agencies is constantly improving the portfolio by facing new frontiers in the development of technology and applications.
