Lockheed Martin has demonstrated in flight tests a new reconnaissance
and mapping camera that it says offers significantly sharper images even
when the aircraft is flying at high speed. The Ultra High Resolution Framing
Camera uses on-chip electronic image stabilization to freeze an image,
according to Lockheed Martin Fairchild Systems, Syosset, NY. It said
the camera can capture a single image covering a square mile of ground
with enough resolution to identify the tires on individual vehicles. The
camera, installed in a pod carried beneath an F-16, produced crisp
pictures from an altitude of 3,000 feet while the aircraft was traveling
at 550 mph, Lockheed Martin said. (Aerospace Daily)
