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.
