Hydrus Luna Computers

Hydrus 1The New Hydrus®Luna features the same outstanding battery life, rugged exterior, and integrated imager as the original Hydrus. So what’s different about Hydrus Luna? Lights. Camera. Action!

Poorly lit offices, dark warehouses and overcast skies can make it difficult to capture a detailed image. The New Hydrus Luna features an integrated Xenon True-Flash-System that brings subjects to life in demanding photographic applications.

Whether you are in a dark utility closet, or in a parking garage at sunset, you will always have the right amount of illumination on your subject. The powerful flash is software controllable which allows you to adjust the intensity for near or far images.

Combine all of this serious computing power, incredible battery life, and an IP67/68 rating, with Precision GPS, and Hydrus Luna GPS is ready to light the way, no matter where you roam.
