The MCA (Multiple Camera Array) Series of cameras consist of up to six channels of 10 bit SXGA (1.3 megapixel) data. Each channel has it’s own detector/bandpass filter/lens mounted in a common, factory aligned optical block. The MCA features a fast USB interface and non-volatile image storage on standard CompactFlash cards. Host software supplied with the camera provides full camera control and image management. The filter passbands are customer designated at the time of order. These are easily field replaceable using standard 25mm spectrometer filters. The system can be connected to an external GPS receiver speaking NMEA sentences, camera coordinates at capture time are then attached to the image data and later recovered using PixelWrench2.
