Norcross, Ga. - Leica Geosystems announced the new generation of its airborne digital sensor, the Leica ADS100. Introducing a unique focal plate design, the Leica ADS100 offers a swath width of 20,000 pixels for all multispectral bands (RGBN) and multispectral capability in forward, nadir and backward.

The Leica ADS100 provides the world's first large format CCD line with TDI (Time Delay and Integration) to increase sensitivity despite a smaller pixel size. By doubling the cycle rate, high resolution images can be acquired at much higher ground speeds. To provide the best stabilization performance, the Leica PAV100 gyro-stabilized mount is equipped with adaptive control technology. In addition to the Leica PAV100, the Leica ADS100 shares all aircraft installation components such as camera controller, operator displays and flight control software with the Leica RCD30 medium format camera, realizing a unique common platform concept.

"There are several reasons our customers will be pleased with this development,” explains Ruedi Wagner, VP Imaging Geospatial Solutions. "With the Leica ADS100, we are now nearly doubling productivity while maintaining reliability and highly automated workflows that are so well accepted in the market. In addition, by introducing the common platform concept using a unified aircraft installation and shared peripherals between the Leica ADS100 and the Leica RCD30, we are not only simplifying operation but significantly reducing cost of ownership across our sensor portfolio.”

The new Leica ADS100 continues the path of airborne evolution to offer customers an innovative technology with cost-cutting performance. The new Leica ADS100 airborne digital sensor, together with Leica XPro 6.0, will be released and shipped from Q2 2013.
