Cameras for EnsoMOSAIC
Practically any digital camera can be utilized in EnsoMOSAIC in-flight system. The requirements for the camera are:
MosaicMill is not developing cameras or sensors, instead our principle is
to trust that the professional photographic companies have the best solutions
for the image capture. As the camera and sensor development is fast the camera options change often.
For special purposes we recommend e.g. the following models:
For light weight UAV solutions we recommend the following interchangeable-lens cameras:
We offer a service to convert standard digital SLR cameras to capture CIR and RGB instead of the standard RGB only. The converted camera is provided with two lenses filtered to capture RGB or CIR, thus on one flight it is possible to capture either CIR or RGB but not both.
The converted cameras are reconfigured and calibrated to optimize the captured images and to provide metric output. For high quality images it is essential to run the images through preprocessing software which optimizes the CIR output.
The world's smallest and most lighweight hyperspectral camera for UAVs and manned operations will be available within the second quarter 2013. This innovative product provides frame images with up to 50 spectral bands on single exposure. Please click to "Downloads" page for the specifications.
