UltraCamXp WA



The new Microsoft UltraCamXp Wide Angle large format digital aerial camera takes advantage of the same superior camera concept and image quality as the UltraCamXp but features a new proprietary, digital, high-performance, high-resolution lens system with a shorter focal length. This allows the latest UltraCam sensor to deliver the same ground sample distance (GSD) as the UltraCamXp, but at lower flight altitudes. An alternative to the UltraCamXp and at the same price, the UltraCam Wide Angle provides small-scale mapping capabilities to customers with lower-flying airplanes.

Of course this new sensor is fully compatible with the existing DXp and CXp systems, permitting customers who already own the UltraCamXp and the UltraCamX to purchase the sensor separately and add small-scale mapping capabilities to their businesses. The UltraCamXp Wide Angle provides the same large image format as the UltraCamXp at 196 megapixels (17,310 across track x 11,310 along track), and a pixel size at 6 µm. It integrates fully with existing UltraCamXp and UltraCamX storage and computing systems and is fully supported by Vexcel Imaging’s UltraMap workflow software system.



F E A T U R E S Top
  • Delivers same ground sample distance (GSD) at lower flight altitudes, providing small-scale mapping capabilities for customers with lower-flying airplanes
  • Same camera concept and image quality (radiometry, geometry ) as the UCXp
  • Largest format available (196 megapixels; 17,310 across track, 11,310 along track) means fewer flight lines, less time, and lower costs
  • Pixel size on the ground (GSD) at flying height of 1000 m (at 500m) is 8.6 cm (4.3 cm)
  • 1:3 pan-to-color ratio delivers stunning color and color-infrared (CIR) image quality and negligible image vignetting
  • Short frame interval allows multi-ray photogrammetry even for large-scale mapping at low altitudes and high aircraft speeds; forward overlaps of 60% are achieved at a 1 inch pixel size at 110 knots
  • Sensor head is fully compatible with the existing DXp and CXp systems, providing UCXp and UCX owners a modular add-on solution for small-scale mapping projects
  • UCXp w/a works with existing environments such as mount and GPS/INS systems
  • UCXp w/a is fully supported by UltraMap workflow software system, including UltraMap/AT option
  • An upgrade path for UCD, UCX and UCXp customers is available by trade in or refurbishment
