Toronto, Canada - Optech Incorporated announced its new CS-10000 camera including the latest advances in photogrammetric technology. Seamless integration with Optech's airborne LiDAR sensors creates a very efficient and flexible aerial survey platform.

The CS-10000 introduces many new features while retaining proven technologies such as the original True Forward Motion Compensation (FMC).

Superior data quality, upgradeability and minimized downtime will help users maximize their profitability.

“The CS-10000 is the product of 20 years of photogrammetric knowledge and engineering merged with Optech’s market-leading expertise in airborne LiDAR systems,” said Julien Losseau, product manager for Optech cameras. “The CS-10000 is not only a solution that fits the exacting requirements of LiDAR users and photogrammetrists, it's also a new platform that harmonizes all Optech cameras in an efficient and complete solution. That means users will get the best results today and tomorrow.”

The CS-10000 and other new camera products will be unveiled at the ASPRS 2012 Annual Conference in Sacramento, Calif., March 19-23. Optech also welcomes visitors to the CS-10000 workshop to be held at the conference venue, Room 307, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20.
