Bluesky International has contracted with Microsoftâs UltraCam business unit and subsidiary to purchase a second UltraCam Eagle digital aerial camera system equipped with a 100mm lens and an UltraMount. âWeâve been very pleased with the performance of our first UltraCam Eagle purchased in January 2014, and now we need to increase our aerial survey capacity to meet increased demand from new contracts, one of them being a commitment to capture 70,000 sq km of high resolution aerial photography in Ireland,â said James Eddy, Operations Director of Bluesky. âFor the resolution we require and the air traffic control restrictions, as well as the weather in the UK, the Eagle with a 100mm lens works best for us.â Bluesky optimizes utilization of its UltraCam Eagles by flying in the UK and Ireland during the spring, summer and fall, and moving to sunnier locations in the Middle East and Africa for the winter.
