Aero-Photo (1961) Inc. has contracted with Microsoft’s UltraCam business unit and subsidiary to purchase an UltraCam Eagle digital aerial photogrammetric camera system. Aero-Photo has previously purchased three UltraCamXp and one UltraCamLp cameras.
”We chose the UltraCam Eagle for three reasons. First because it helps to be more efficient in data acquisition, second because we have experience with UltraCam products and are very happy with them, and finally, we are able to use the same software to process the external data, which keeps our production line efficient and quality controlled,” explained Mr. Marcel Laberge, Geomatics Director for Aero-Photo. “We see demand for aerial mapping growing worldwide. To be competitive in new markets, we have to use the best available hardware and software and the most cost effective processes.”
With its fleet of six aircraft, Aero-Photo (1961) Inc. operates all five of its UltraCam digital cameras and its LiDAR sensor to complete large-area projects throughout North, Central and South America. Controlling costs and expediting delivery are key factors in achieving success in these types of assignments.
“Microsoft is very pleased that Aero-Photo has added an UltraCam Eagle camera system to its resources,” said Alexander Wiechert, Microsoft Business Director. “The flexibility of the system, along with the image quality and high-volume data acquisition capabilities, is a great choice for Aero-Photo’s typical jobs.”
