Title
(EN) A COMPACT INTERVAL SWEEPING IMAGING SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ D'IMAGERIE À BALAYAGE D'INTERVALLE COMPACT
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention describes an aerial survey camera system. The system includes two or more cameras mounted on a bracket that rotates perpendicular to the aircraft's movement by a motor. The images are captured at specific calculated angular intervals during the camera's sweeps. The motor positions the cameras in the planned angles and stops their rotation, while the controller commands the cameras to capture the images. Optionally the aircraft crosses an area of interest in parallel lines of flight at opposite directions, for example to facility covering all viewing angles with a small number of cameras. The invention further discloses methods for efficient flight management utilizing the disclosed system.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un système d'appareil de prise de vues de levé topographique aérien. Le système comprend deux appareils de prise de vues ou plus montées sur un support qui tourne perpendiculairement au mouvement de l'aéronef par l'intermédiaire d'un moteur. Les images sont capturées à des intervalles angulaires calculés spécifiques pendant les balayages de l'appareil de prise de vues. Le moteur positionne les appareils de prise de vues selon les angles planifiés et arrête leur rotation, tandis que le dispositif de commande commande les appareils de prise de vues pour capturer les images. Facultativement, l'aéronef traverse une zone d'intérêt dans des lignes de vol parallèles dans des directions opposées, par exemple pour une installation couvrant tous les angles de visualisation avec un faible nombre d'appareils de prise de vues. L'invention concerne en outre des procédés de gestion de vol efficace utilisant le système décrit.
