“We continuously strive to improve our quality of service,” said Masahiko Hatamoto, Shin-Engineering Technical Manager. “By purchasing an UltraCam Eagle, we can deliver better results more quickly to our clients due to the wide image footprint and superior operating efficiencies.”
The UltraCam Eagle is the first multi-cone digital photogrammetric camera to offer an exchangeable lens system with 80mm (standard) and 210mm (tele for high altitude flights) and includes filters with curved characteristics to flatten out vignetting.
“Microsoft is pleased that Shin-Engineering has purchased the first UltraCam Eagle in Japan,” said Alexander Wiechert, Microsoft Business Director. “We continue to enhance the UltraCam product line with features that will have a positive impact on the efficiency of our customers’ business operations.”
About the UltraCam Eagle
The UltraCam Eagle features a pan image footprint of 20,010 pixels across the flight strip. In addition to the ultra-large image footprint, the UltraCam Eagle includes enhanced electronics for improved frame rate and less noise (72 dB signal-to-noise ratio for high image dynamic) when compared to previous UltraCam systems, and innovative high-resolution, high-performance lenses and state-of-the art CCD technology (@ 5.2 µm pixel size) for sharp images with a high dynamic range. This digital camera system boasts an integrated housing concept with all of the parts residing in a modular sensor head. Compared to previous UltraCam systems, the smaller physical form factor of the UltraCam system requires less aircraft space, weighs less for more efficient aircraft fuel consumption, and is easier and quicker to install.
