Hyperspectral (HS) imaging involves the sensing of a scene's spectral properties, which are often redundant in nature. The redundancy of the information motivates our quest to implement Compressive Sensing (CS) theory for HS imaging. This article provides a review of the Compressive Sensing Miniature Ultra-Spectral Imaging (CS-MUSI) camera, its evolution, and its different applications. The CS-MUSI camera was designed within the CS framework and uses a liquid crystal (LC) phase retarder in order to modulate the spectral domain. The outstanding advantage of the CS-MUSI camera is that the entire HS image is captured from an order of magnitude fewer measurements of the sensor array, compared to conventional HS imaging methods.
