UltraCam Condor 4.1

Large format aerial camera for wide-area mapping

The UltraCam Condor 4.1 is the all-in-one aerial camera solution for utmost efficiency of high-altitude, wide-area data collection, featuring an expansive image footprint and impressive image quality.

Description

Specifically designed and optimized for nationwide mapping, the UltraCam Condor 4.1 boasts an impressive image footprint of about 48,460 pixels across the flight strip. Combining a high-resolution RGB strip and lower resolution rectangular PAN and NIR images, the UltraCam Condor 4.1 delivers imagery of the utmost quality. The rectangular PAN channel enables automated dense matching, DSM, DTM and ortho image generation. This eliminates the need for additional flights by other sensors as all necessary data sets can be derived from a single flight with the UltraCam Condor.

The innovative camera system features numerous enhancements, beginning with a fully CMOS based architecture that enables a fast frame rate of 1 frame per 0.7 seconds. To manage the impressive amount of data collected by the latest CMOS sensors, new state-of-the art electronics were implemented for UltraCam 4th generation systems. Custom-designed lenses ensure imagery of exceptional sharpness, resolution, and contrast.

“We found that the Condor 4.1 offers the highest rate of production possible to cover an area for ortho imagery. The Condor’s fast frame rate enables us to operate the camera in a jet or a fast turboprop aircraft and shoot with 85% overlap. The Condor is a perfect tool to combat traffic and weather challenges and capture excellent data on time.”

(Yoeri Slagboom, UltraCam Condor customer)

The UltraCam Condor 4.1 is the gold standard for wide-area mapping, empowering you to map countries and continents in record time.
