White Paper: Photonics/Optics

The Most Important Camera Parameters for Aerial Imaging


Selecting components for an aerial imaging payload does not have to be complicated. This whitepaper walks through the specifications that matter the most when imaging from the sky. It covers the camera’s resolution and sensor size, explains how sensitivity and noise are measured, discusses the required shutter type for aerial imaging, elaborates on dynamic range and bit depth, and highlights camera reliability considerations.
