Leica releases 60MP multispectral camera

Heerbrugg, Switzerland: Leica Geosystems released Leica RCD30, the first metric medium format 60 MP camera to acquire co-registered four-band imagery in RGB and NIR in RGB and NIR for photogrammetric and remote sensing mapping applications.
In addition, a variety of innovative design features such as mechanical motion compensation along two axis, specifically designed lens systems as well as state-of-the-art calibration techniques make the Leica RCD30 the most advanced and most suitable single-lens medium format sensor for professional photogrammetric and remote sensing applications. 
Ruedi Wagner, VP of Imaging at Hexagon Geosystems said, “Of course, the multispectral capability and metric performance make this system truly unique. But customers are also interested in the flexibility of the Leica RCD30: it can be integrated with Leica ALS LiDAR systems and as such succeeds the Leica RCD105. In addition, the Leica RCD30 can be configured as a fully integrated standalone single and multi-head camera system with GNSS/IMU and specialized mount to increase area coverage and data acquisition efficiency. Lastly, customers can integrate the camera with their existing third party Flight Management and/or third party GNSS/IMU solution, thus saving further costs. Further, due to its light weight and small size, the Leica RCD30 Series can be used on ultralight aircrafts and UAVs.”
