"Aerodata has long studied the various technology trends as reflected in the growing offering of digital aerial cameras," observed Willem Philipse, managing partner of AeroData. "We are betting on the UltraCam-D as the right product at the right time and the right price".
The camera will be embedded into Aerodata's existing flight support system which consists of two components by German company IGI GmbH: the CCNS-4 flight management system and the AeroControl direct geopositioning system. The digital images will then be fed directly into an initially unmodified Boeing-Softplotter workflow.
"The UltraCam-D acquisition, and the benefits of a fully digital workflow, solidifies AeroData's role as a technology pioneer and a leading provider of aerial photogrammetry data and products," added Philipse.
