Leica Geosystems announces the introduction of a new medium format digital aerial camera system designed specifically for use with its ALS-series airborne LIDAR systems. The new 39-megapixel camera system Leica RCD105 is designed for "plug and play" connection to Leica Geosystems' airborne LIDAR systems. Benefits of this airborne-specific design include full compliance with all applicable airborne environmental specifications, including temperature, shock, vibration and EMI/RFI. Additionally, a single camera controller is capable of recording data from two camera heads, allowing simultaneous acquisition of natural color and false-color infrared images. No matter which color preference is selected, the Leica RCD105 is available with a variety of lenses. With the system's fast frame rate, the camera can be set up with optimal performance parameters for any given job.
