The Microsoft UltraCam Eagle Prime ultra-large format camera system is the only photogrammetric digital aerial sensor that features a userexchangeable lens system to provide the aerial data acquisition company with a “workhorse” sensor to serve all its aerial acquisition missions.
UltraCam Eagle Prime builds on the awardwinning UltraCam legacy and reputation, establishing Microsoft's UltraCam "thirdgeneration" architecture. With the UltraCam Eagle Microsoft introduced a modular housing concept, setting a new standard in component integration, which reduces sensor head size and balances weight. The updated sensor head offers an exchangeable lens system with four different focal lengths - a groundbreaking enhancement in digital photogrammetry - and is specifically designed for high-resolution digital aerial photography.
UltraCam Eagle Prime also features filters with curved characteristics and silent-board camera electronics, further ushering in revolutionary aerial photogrammetric technology. Embedded in the integrated component package is UltraNav, a flight management and georeferencing system that includes stateof-the-art GNSS-Inertial technology, pilot displays, and flight-planning software. The result is an ultra-reliable, ultraefficient, ultra-large-footprint camera that screams through image acquisitions, captures the smallest details, and enables direct and swift flights that are not limited by technology.
