Hyperspectral imagery involves capturing and processing a tremendous amount of data, which sets severe system resource requirements. This has motivated the application of compressive sensing for different spectroscopic and spectroscopic imager systems. Several new compressive hyperspectral architectures have been designed to stretch the common limitations of classical systems. However, the application of the compressive sensing framework involves design of system architectures that differ significantly from the conventional ones. Since compressive sensing differs essentially from conventional sensing, it cannot be implemented for hyperspectral imaging by simply modifying one of the components of a conventional hyperspectral system, rather it requires a complete new design. In this work we present a comparison between four compressive hyperspectral architectures to conventional architectures. The compressive hyperspectral sensing compared are: Coded Aperture Snapshot Spectral Imaging (CASSI), Compressive HS Imaging by Separable Spatial And Spectral Operators (CHISSS), (Liquid-crystal Compressive spectral Imager) LiCSI and (Spectral Single-Pixel) SSP systems. Those methods are compared to conventional spatial/spectral scanning hyperspectral such as pushbroom, whiskbroom and color filter techniques. A fundamental comparison between these architectures is presented in terms of optical system volume and radiometric efficiency.
