LH Systems LLC in San Diego, in cooperation with the German Aerospace Center in Berlin, completed the first test flight of its airborne digital sensor.
The sensor can record data at high resolution for digital terrain models. Components include 12,000-pixel charge-coupled-device line sensors, a high-performance lens from SwissOptic in Heerbrugg, Switzerland, and a high-precision focal plane module with a built-in cooling facility.
