Product Resources

The Trimble Aerial Camera provides high-performance, trouble-free operation, and advanced features in a compact package.

Purpose-built for aerial metric photogrammetry and easily integrated either standalone or integrated with direct georeferencing or laser scanning, this camera is ideal for project mapping, spot updates, and corridor mapping. Interchangeable lenses provide the flexibility to select the best flight altitude and field of view for each project.

Available 60 and 80-megapixel models with lenses from 35mm to 100mm.

Metric lens with internal iris shutter precisely maintains the correct focal length to the CCD sensor plane. Lens is easily unscrewed from the camera body to allow the user in the field to exchange for another focal length or replace a shutter with minimum downtime. Focal lengths from 35mm to 100mm. Fastest shutter speed: 1/1000th second.

Camera body has no moving parts to enable metric imagery, calibrated as a unit with the lens and digital camera back. Optional forward motion control available.

Electronic controller connects Trimble Aerial Camera to aircraft power and computer controller. Touch-less operation—all settings controllable from the computer. Frontside connections to light meter, lens and flash connector. Back-side connections to shutter release signal, system power, RS232C connection to computer controller, electronic sensor connection, and event (shutter release) pulse connection.
