First UltraCam Eagle Digital Aerial Cameras Delivered!

I am extremely pleased to share exciting news with the aerial mapping and survying market: the first two UltraCam Eagle camera systems were shipped to their owners on November 30, 2011! This is a significant milestone for the UltraCam team and for the aerial camera market. The UltraCam Eagle was announced just this past May at the ASPRS 2011 conference in Milwuakee, Wisconsin and we are now shipping product and ramping up the serial production of the UltraCam Eagle to address the growing demand for this newest generation of UltraCam.

UltraCan Eagle

UltraCam Eagle ultra-large format digital aerial camera system.

The UltraCam Eagle is a completely new camera that establishes an”ultra-large” format category of digital aerial sensors through a PAN image footprint of more than 20,000 pixels across the flight strip. Other significant features include an integrated package design that contains all system components in the sensor head—including an in-flight exchangable solid-state storage system, and our new UltraNav flight management and direct georeferencing system—and an exchangeable lens system with 80mm (standard) and 210mm (tele for high altitude flights). Exchange of these lens systems can be done in the field by customers after some minimal training and without the need for re-calibration! For more on the UltraCam Eagle, check out the web site at

Huge thanks and congratulations to everyone on the UltraCam team for the diligent efforts that made this milestone possible!
