Leica DMC III with Klaus Neumann

Klaus Neumann, vice-president of Technical Sales, Airborne Imagery Sensors, shares his thoughts on the DMC III.

The new Leica DMC III – breaking new ground
The new Leica DMC III airborne mapping solution is breaking new ground by combining the world’s largest single frame camera with the most efficient workflow. Based on a brand-new CMOS sensor specifically engineered for airborne applications, the new Leica DMC III airborne camera offers the world’s largest swath generated by a single frame: pure and simple, 25,728 pixels across swath. That is 25 % more area performance than the closest competitor. And because of it’s revolutionary forward motion compensation design, it delivers unprecedented image quality and the unsurpassed geometric accuracy of a monolithic sensor.

Introducing HxMap, Leica Geosystems offers the most innovative and intuitive processing Environment to support fast and efficient processing of eventually all Leica airborne sensors. Now available, HxMap Core for Leica DMC II and DMC III offers project management, QC view, radiometric Tools and distributed processing for even the largest data sets.

With the new Leica DMC III airborne mapping solution Leica Geosytems is giving you all you ever asked for, and is proving once more what it means to be the world’s leading airborne solutions provider: Breaking new ground. Always.

User Benefits:
The DMC III is the first large format frame camera using CMOS sensor technology, thus reaching beyond the limitations of traditional CCD technology.
Users benefit from:

  • Reduced data acquisition cost due to increased sensor size / area Performance
  • Capturing more information due to 100 % increase in dynamic range
  • Never before achieved image quality because of less image noise and almost zero blooming
  • Integrated workflow, from planning to post processing 90 % forward overlap

The Leica DMC III has an embedded flight Management and GNSS/IMU system. Customised optics and a class 5 IMU provides highest geometric accuracy.

High productivity = Leica DMC III + Hx
Leica Geosystems respects your investment. To benefit existing customers, upgrades are available from DMC II to DMC III. Based on the modular common platform concept, both systems share sensor architecture, optics and compatible workflow. So upgrades are easy. To improve data acquisition efficiency by over 40 %, please contact your sales representative.
It is that simple. To be a number one, the most efficient camera relies on the most efficient data processing. Based on the acclaimed Leica XPro processing suite, Leica Geosystems is introducing HxMap, a new and intuitive common data processing platform to support all sensors in the world’s most comprehensive airborne mapping portfolio. Now available, HxMap Core for Leica DMC II and DMC III offers state-of-the-art project management, radiometric tools and production tools for efficient processing of even the largest blocks.
