Based on the UltraCamL, the UltraCamLp features the same advanced technical specifications, but with an impressive image footprint of 92 megapixels (11,704 x 7,920 pixels pan) compared to the UltraCamL 64 megapixel format, making it ideal for smaller aircraft and local projects that require a rapid response. With new electronics, the UltraCamLp allows for a larger footprint than the UltraCamL without sacrificing cycle rates. The result is 43% more image at the same frame rate, allowing for the following possible benefits:
- Data collection at higher flight speeds
- Increase of potential forward overlap for a given GSD and speed
- Data collection at higher resolutions with the same forward overlap and speed
With superior image quality, the UltraCamLp can be used on smaller airplanes, and thus operated at lower cost. Smaller mapping companies have an affordable option for offering a digital platform and expanding their aerial services.The UltraCamLp is also ideal for larger mapping firms who need to cost-effectively fly small projects or collect digital data in conjunction with lidar or other data. The UltraCamLp provides the same high geometric accuracy, broad dynamic range, matching and stereo capabilities, and full metric capabilities, as the photogrammetric cameras. The image data are suitable for DSM (digital surface model) production, aerotriangulation, ortho mapping and 3D technical vector mapping.
