MEDUSA-L is a camera product under development for low and medium altitude UAV’s. It is designed around the same custom designed CMOS image chip of MEDUSA-FM allowing to acquire panchromatic and colour frame images from one single camera. Within a compact volume and low mass budget, an unprecedented spatial resolution over swath ratio can be realized close to airborne cameras. MEDUSA-L can be operated autonomously or controlled via a command interface for instance to optimise camera performance during flight. The image data can be extracted either via a wired data interface or through a 20 Mbps RF downlink. It contains a hardware synchronised GPS-IMU system to allow direct georeferencing. The camera is ideally suited for large scale mapping, disaster monitoring and surveillance activities.
