Scaled Down Camera Package Offers Low-Cost Digital Aerial Solution With Superior Sharpness, TRUE FMC And Color Imagery
PECORA ASPRS - DENVER (Colorado) / LONGMONT (Colorado), – November 17, 2008 – DIMAC Systems, a leading global provider of digital aerial imagery solutions will unveil to North American customers during the Pecora ASPRS Remote Sensing Symposium 2008 of next week the DiMAC ULTRALiGHT, the smallest of the renowned DiMAC™ (Digital Modular Aerial Camera) product family. It consists of just a single Camera Module that captures a footprint of 7,200 pixels across by 5,400 pixels along the flight line.
Like no other medium footprint digital aerial camera, the DiMACULTRALiGHT provides accuracy and clarity that can only be obtained through TRUE forward motion compensation. In addition to the patented TRUE FMC, the DiMACULTRALiGHT features DiMAC’s TRUE Color acquisition and can be configured with a range of lens and filter options.
The DiMACULTRALiGHT is mounted on a scaled down gyro-stabilized platform that can fit smaller-thannormal aircraft camera ports. System control and data storage are provided by an unobtrusive IT Cube (ITC) making the overall system size and power requirements among the smallest in the industry.
The DiMACULTRALiGHT Camera Module is fully calibrated, geometrically and radiometrically, and can be used for both photogrammetric and orthophoto applications. The DiMACULTRALiGHT benefits from the same proven calibration methodology as other DiMAC products.
The DiMACULTRALiGHT is a very low cost (125,000 USD) and readily available solution, ideal for small and medium scale mapping and orthophoto projects, yet offering the superior sharpness and accuracy of DiMAC’s True FMC and True Color imagery.
