Improving Surveillance of Coastal Erosion

Resolve Optics reports on how ultra large format lenses it has developed are helping a next generation aerial surveillance camera gain data on coastal erosion faster and in more detail.

Resolve Optics lens assembly in IMAO extra large format aerial surveillance camera.

Coastal erosion is a main environmental concern which requires accurate aerial data. Aerial surveillance specialists – IMAO SAS have recently undertaken a photogrammetric survey in the North of France using their extra large format camera which incorporates Resolve Optics high performance lenses.

Aerial Surveillance work depends on the weather, and is challenged every day by how much data you can acquire when the sky is clear. Incorporating 3 ultra large format, low distortion custom lenses, developed by Resolve Optics, the IMAO B66 extra large format camera produces high quality aerial surveillance images two to three times larger than the standard image size generated by other large format cameras on the market. As a consequence not only are less images required for geographic data mapping but also these images require less processing time saving operators time and money.

In 2017, IMAO SAS and Resolve Optics Ltd. received €1.68 million funding from a European Union Horizon 2020 programme to develop an ultra-large format aerial surveillance camera.
