Digital Camera (Airborne Scanner) «3-DAS-1»

High resolution trilinear pushbroom airborne scanner with true RGB forward-nadir-backward channels

Brochure | Presentation

Features and benefits

Complete digital photogrammetric workflow without film development, scanning, etc.

Contiguous seamless images for whole strip with permanent triple overlay.

Three RGB-sensors from Kodak provide crystal bright 42-bit images.

Realtime Image view and automatic selection of optimal exposition during the flight.

Unlimited flight capture time with hot swap RAID storage units.

On-the-fly lossless compression allows up to 16 hours of capture per terrabyte.

Selectable stereo for 3D-mapping with 16°, 26° or 42° convergence angle.

Simple and robust design for easy maintenance.

The family of pushbroom cameras

There are many other cameras in addition to 3-DAS-1 with different number of RGB and Infrared modules and various inclination angles between the modules. 4-DAS-1 camera has additional NIR channel in nadir along with three RGB channels. Large format 3-DAS-2 has six channels and provides double scanning swath width. 3-OC-1 and 6-OC-1 are oblique cameras and were developed to create textured 3D-city models. These cameras have 45 degree inclined backward/forward and left/right channels.
