Our Sensor Collection!



Here at Williams we are proud to be able to offer a large variety of products. This is partly due to the array of sensors that we hold in our arsenal. We are able to accommodate any project you have now or will in the future. We hope that our sensor pages are informative and that any question you may have are answered. However, if they are not we encourage you to ask any questions. Please visit our contact page if there is anything we might be able to help with.


Williams Aerial & Mapping, Inc. has a rich history in the creation of planimetric and topographic maps. Beginning as the photogrammetry department with Clyde E. Williams and Associates, the company had it's origins in 1941. Today Williams is a thriving firm of Professional Photogrammetrists. We look forward to hearing from you as you search out the right fit for your project.

Sensor Descriptions


Trimble Harrier 68i

The Harrier 68i is designed for both aircraft and helicopter operation. It combines a wide angle laser scanner that gives us the opportunity to extract the most comprehensive datasets for your project. This state of the art sensor combines a 400kHz laser with an integrated medium-format digital frame camera supplying robust point clouds with high-quality digital images collected simultaneously for ortho rectification.

The Trimble Harrier 68i uses Multiple-Time-Around Technology to allow for multiple laser pulses and echoes in the air, increasing the point density of the mission.

This sensor is the ideal solution for wide area mapping, power-line mapping, pipeline monitoring and corridor mapping.








Z/I DMC Digital Sensor

For many decades Carl Zeiss Photogrammetry Division developed and manufactured high performance aerial photography systems. Since October 1999 and Zeiss' collaborative introduction of the company, Z/I Imaging, many advances have been made in aerial imagery collection. The DMC panchromatic digital sensor (Digital Mapping Camera) was born out of this effort.

The DMC construct was a revolutionary one. It was developed to contain 4 panchromatic sensor modules and up to 4 additional multi-spectral camera modules. In the post-flight processing the 4 panchromatic images are stitched together to make one large-format high resolution image. The new high res image is then combined with the desired additional multi-spectral channels for a remarkably high resolution panchromatic color or color infrared imagery. The DMC is gyroscopically stabilized and equipped with forward motion control.

This sensor is the ideal solution for wide area mapping, county mapping, urban mapping and is excellent for all other large-format mapping requirements.



Zeiss /Jena LMK2000

The LMK is a large format mapping camera manufactured by Zeiss Jena in the former East Germany. After the reunification of Germany, the company was taken over by Carl Zeiss, Inc. and production of aerial cameras in Jena was discontinued.

Williams Aerial & Mapping, Inc. was the first private company to purchase the Zeiss /Jena LMK2000 in 1991. Williams uses a gyroscopically stabilized mount for our LMK2000. Combined with the camera's forward motion compensation capabilities, we are able to ensure high quality, sharp and perfectly vertical imagery at many shutter speeds.





Leica RC30

The Leica RC camera series has been a number one choice for Aerial Survey professionals all over the world. This sensor is the culmination of decades of development which first started with Wild's first aerial camera in the 1920's.

The RC30 offers high quality lenses producing high resolution imagery, forward motion compensation (FMC) that compensates for the aircrafts velocity at the point of camera triggering, and the optional PAV30 gyro-stabilized mount which levels the camera with it's automatic drift control.


Our processing team is equally experienced as well. We pride ourselves in processing the data for your job in house with a highly trained and experienced team. With a total of over 100 years of photogrammetric background, our team will develop a solution to fit any requirements for your project.
