Leica Geosystems, a leading manufacturer of airborne sensors, has released the Leica RCD30, the first metric medium format 60 MP camera to acquire co-registered multispectral data in RGB and NIR for photogrammetric and remote sensing mapping applications.

Leica Geosystems has officially released the much anticipated Leica RCD30 medium format camera. The Leica RCD30 is the first 60MP medium format camera that can record co-registered multispectral four-band imagery in RGB and NIR. In addition, a variety of innovative design features such as mechanical motion compensation along two axis, specifically designed lens systems as well as state-of-the-art calibration techniques make the Leica RCD30 the most advanced and most suitable single-lens medium format sensor for professional photogrammetric and remote sensing applications.

“Since we have announced the development of the Leica RCD30 we have received overwhelming interest in this new and innovative technology,” says Ruedi Wagner, VP of Imaging at Hexagon Geosystems. “Of course, the multispectral capability and metric performance make this system truly unique. But customers are also interested in the flexibility of the Leica RCD30: it can be integrated with Leica ALS LiDAR systems and as such succeeds the Leica RCD105. In addition, the Leica RCD30 can be configured as a fully integrated standalone single and multi-head camera system with GNSS/IMU and specialized mount to increase area coverage and data acquisition efficiency. Lastly, customers can integrate the camera with their existing third party Flight Management and/or third party GNSS/IMU solution, thus saving further costs. Further, due to its light weight and small size, the Leica RCD30 Series can be used on ultralight aircrafts and UAVs.”

Since its release at the end of June, Leica Geosystems has shipped the first six systems in standalone and ALS configuration to customers in the US, UK, Japan, China and Russia.
