Chinese institute develops 100-megapixel IOE3-Kanban camera

Reporters on the 9th learned from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Institute of Optoelectronic Technology researchers hospital lasted two years, successfully developed up to 100 million pixel camera IOE3-Kanban. The camera uses international professional company area array CCD chip, integrated developed a camera that can actually work the whole, is currently the highest in China monolithic CCD pixel digital CCD camera.

New developed the 100 million pixel camera IOE3-Kanban small size, light weight, body only 19.3 cm at its widest point, the imaging frame reaches 10240 × 10240 pixels, at -20 ℃ to 55 ℃ temperature range can achieve high-resolution imaging, and has a high sensitivity, high dynamic range, and can be used in aerial mapping, urban planning, disaster monitoring, intelligent transportation systems require more than ten kinds of high-definition imaging field.
According to reports, the Chinese Academy of optoelectronic camera configuration developed by a large field, high-precision, low distortion optics and advanced camera control system and large capacity data recording system that integrates a "national aviation remote sensing system" on the basis of remote sensor of the "big matrix CCD mapping camera system, "recently completed research also carried out after the flight test, successfully obtained high-quality digital images.
Back in the "fifth" period, the Chinese Academy of Opto-Electronics has successfully developed a 81 million pixel area array CCD camera system, reached the international advanced level. Experts said the completion of 100 million pixel camera developed, marking the Chinese Academy of Sciences Photonics Large Area Development of high-resolution CCD digital camera technology is more mature.
A Chinese institute claimed to have successfully developed a 100-megapixel camera which could produce high-resolution imaging in the fields of aerial mapping, disaster monitoring and intelligent transportation systems.
The IOE3-Kanban camera was developed by the Institute of Optics and Electronics under the Chinese Academy of Sciences making it China's highest pixel camera, CAS said in a statement.
The camera is capable of producing images with 10,240 x 10,240 pixels, the statement said. Moreover, it is small and light, with its widest part measuring only 19.3 cm, state-run Xinhua quoted the statement as saying, adding that it can be used at temperatures ranging from minus 20 degrees centigrade to 55 degrees centigrade.
Its high sensitivity and high dynamic range (HDR) features mean it will be useful in high-resolution imaging in the fields of aerial mapping, city planning, disaster monitoring and intelligent transportation systems, the statement said.
Intelligent transportation system is aimed to provide innovative services relating to different modes of transport and traffic management, enabling various users to be better informed and make safer, more coordinated, and 'smarter' use of transport networks.
The camera is equipped with advanced optical systems, camera control systems and high-capacity data recording systems, and it has proven successful in a recent trial use as a part of a national aerial remote-sensing system, it said.
The institute also developed an 81-megapixel camera during the 10th Five Year Plan period (2001-2005), and the latest achievement took the researchers two years to develop.
A megapixel is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays.
