UltraCam Eagle 4.1

Most versatile photogrammetric large-format aerial camera

The UltraCam Eagle 4.1 delivers the efficiency, flexibility and photogrammetric-grade quality you need to succeed in today's rapidly evolving market: Over 28,000 pixels across the flight strip, three exchangeable lens kits, high-resolution PAN sensors, multi-directional Adaptive Motion Compensation (AMC) and True Pixel Processing (TPP) for best imaging performance.

Description

Built on the renowned UltraCam approach and leveraging the latest 4th generation system advancements, the new UltraCam Eagle 4.1 is the pinnacle of nadir photogrammetric aerial camera systems. As a true mapping-grade aerial camera, the UltraCam Eagle 4.1 collects high-resolution panchromatic (PAN), R, G, B and NIR color information at over 500 Megapixels – an impressive footprint that can be exploited at different altitudes, thanks to three user-exchangeable lens kits.

The Eagle 4.1 features CMOS sensors for a finer pixel pitch, industry-leading panchromatic image footprint, and a rapid cycle rate of 1 frame every 0.7 seconds. The new sensors, coupled with new electronics and new lenses developed exclusively for Vexcel, provide UltraCam customers with imagery of unprecedented sharpness, detail and image dynamic. Central to this is also the proprietary Adaptive Motion Compensation (AMC), correcting image motion blur caused by multi-directional camera movement during flight.

“We continue to choose the UltraCam Eagle over other systems on the market because of its large footprint, the user-exchangeable lens system and its state-of-the-art technology. With the Eagle 4.1, we can provide our customers with highest quality imagery and data.”

(Kaoru Orimo, UltraCam Eagle customer)

Vexcel cuts no corners in developing best-in-class UltraCams. The result is once again an aerial camera sensor that provides more than just pretty pictures – imagery taken by the UltraCam Eagle 4.1 is visually stunning but also of photogrammetric-grade quality, higher in acuity and better for analysis and interpretation.
