NIR aerial image

High-performance data collection.
The Merlin 4.1 not only covers more ground in less time, but also maximizes the available flight collection window even in challenging lighting conditions. This is achieved thanks to a high dynamic range using the latest CMOS sensors coupled with industry-leading customized lenses.

True nadir aerial image at class-leading geometry

Class-leading geometry.
Like the Merlin 4.1 2010, the system captures true nadir imagery at industry-leading geometry, maintaining precision and consistency in its measurements at all times, thanks to a sophisticated and robust calibration procedure as well as our patented Altitude Compensation method. Discover more about this method by watching our informative video.

The Vexcel ecosystem

Prepare your business for tomorrow.
Our upgrade path allows you to expand capabilities when the time is right. Stay ahead of the competition and elevate your business to new heights by upgrading to the UltraCam Merlin 4.1 3020, or to the Premium UltraCam line, including the UltraCam Eagle 4.1, Osprey 4.1, or Condor 4.1.

Accurate and visually impressive imagery through Adaptive Motion Compensation.
Introduced with the 4th generation UltraCam architecture, Vexcel's proprietary Adaptive Motion Compensation (AMC) plays a significant role in the enhanced quality of imagery produced by the UltraCam Eagle 4.1 and other UltraCam 4th generation systems. This software-based approach corrects all image motion blur, regardless of direction and image scale. The result is imagery that is exceptionally sharp and detailed. In the above image at a zoom level of 200%, the difference between no motion compensation and AMC can be observed by moving the arrow left and right.

UltraMap post-processing

Robust and cost-effective processing.
The UltraMap photogrammetric software suite enables efficient processing of ever-larger volumes of data through a highly integrated and automated end-to-end workflow. The user interface is intuitively designed, minimizing the need for extensive training, and enabling smooth operation with reduced manual effort.

User-friendly operation.
The UltraCam Merlin 4.1 3020 is based on the 4th generation UltraCam architecture and incorporates several design features that enhance camera operation and handling. The small form factor allows for straightforward installation in the aircraft, while the ridged cylinder design ensures a seamless fit on the mount. Ergonomic handles and more robust ports increase overall usability.
