Trimble’s New 80 Megapixel Aerial Camera Extends the Medium-Format Application Range

Designed as a workhorse for traditional flight campaigns, the TAC 80MP is a suitable replacement for aging large-format analog cameras (LFC), which are increasingly being taken out of service. Because the long side of the TAC 80MP sensor is equal to an analog LFC image scanned at 20 micrometers, service providers are able to fly the TAC 80MP instead of allocating additional resources to their digital large-format fleet.  

“We see the TAC 80MP as a multi-purpose camera that can equip service providers with capabilities previously only attainable using far more expensive large-format cameras,” said Katherine Sandford, general manager of Trimble’s GeoSpatial Division. “With its robust, light-weight design and flexible integration capabilities, the TAC 80MP is positioned to stretch the boundaries of today’s medium-format camera market.”

As with previous Trimble Aerial Cameras, the 80MP is offered with a wide range of focal length optics, allowing for dynamic reconfigurations to accommodate changing project parameters.  

As part of Trimble’s aerial mapping portfolio, the TAC 80MP can be bundled with Inpho photogrammetry software or integrated into a turn-key mapping solution including flight management, direct georeferencing, laser scanning capabilities, and complete processing workflow (Trimble DSS and Trimble Harrier 68i). Integration can be achieved through an upgrade path, allowing service providers to protect their investment and increase their capabilities as their business requirements expand.

Availability

The TAC 80MP is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2011 from Trimble and authorized resellers.

About Trimble’s GeoSpatial Division

Trimble applies geospatial technologies to a variety of industry-specific workflows, seamlessly transitioning from data acquisition through to geo-information creation. Trimble’s land and aerial mobile sensors capture geo-referenced images and point clouds that are interpreted using Trimble’s production-scale photogrammetry, terrain modeling and feature extraction software. The resulting high-fidelity models increase business productivity and improve decision-making for a diverse community of global customers, including aerial and land mapping service companies, governments, utilities and transportation.
