Optical Bar Camera

The high-altitude Optical Bar Camera is the world’s highest resolution broad-area synoptic sensor. Over the last 40 years, it has provided unsurpassed panoramic imagery for the warfighter, coalition partners and unalterable imagery for the State Department.

It remains in operation due to its unique, Broad Area Coverage that provides over 135,000 nm² of actionable intelligence and mapping quality products from just a single mission. The capability has also been used in several national and international emergency relief efforts as it can provide the largest area coverage that is releasable to first responders
