Resolve Optics together with IMAO SAS (Limoges, France) received the Horizon 2020 award. The award consists of 1.68 million Euro to expedite the development of a 1GPixel resolution ultra-large format aerial surveillance camera.
Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020). Horizon 2020 is a flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe's global competitiveness.
Using ultra large format, low distortion lenses custom designed by Resolve Optics, IMAO was able to create a prototype aerial surveillance camera. Its patented design, which associates three optical chambers, a matrix of sensors and 3 ultra large format lenses, represents a disruptive development in the field of aerial data acquisition.
