Toronto, Canada - Optech Incorporated announced the release of its new CS-15000 aerial camera system. It is the first large-format camera to include both patented field-replaceable shutter and FMC technologies, making it the best solution for wide-area mapping as well as an excellent film camera replacement. The straightforward architecture also ensures image accuracy and clarity, while the design is optimized for reliability and operational efficiency.

The Optech CS-15000 introduces many new design features while significantly enhancing the original true Forward Motion Compensation (FMC) technology. The CS-15000 offers a field-replaceable shutter and interchangeable lenses to allow even greater operational efficiency. With a large footprint of 15,000 pixels across by 10,000 pixels along the flight line and a precision sensor, it provides the best of both worlds: large area coverage with extraordinary image quality. The superior image data, upgradeability and minimized downtime will ensure maximum aerial mapping business profitability.

“The Optech CS-15000 is a revolutionary new sensor product, born from the collaborative efforts of remote sensing technology, electronics and photogrammetry experts in our U.S., EU and Canadian offices,” said Maxime Elbaz, president of Optech, Inc. “The CS-15000 is not only the solution for the needs of wide-area mappers, it's also an effective replacement for film-based aerial cameras. The large ground coverage and next-generation motion compensation technology will maximize the value of your investment.”

The Optech CS-15000 and other new camera products will be unveiled at the ASPRS 2012 Annual Conference in Sacramento, Calif., March 19-23. Also, the Optech Camera Series workshop will be held at the conference venue from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20.
