Phase One Industrial announces its 280 MP large format aerial solution

Press Release 23 Mar - 18:32 SAST

Information from Phase One Industrial

Phase One Industrial has launched its 280MP Aerial Solution, a large format aerial imaging system that offers a high image capture rate (up to 1/2500 sec) and dynamic range, increasing overall quality and accuracy of the final photogrammetric products. The system comprises of the iX Controller, GNSS/IMU receiver (POS AV series), Somag gyro-stabilised mount (DSM 400), and the Phase One flight planning and management software iX Plan, iX Flight and iX Capture.

The system’s iXM-RS 280F dual lens metric camera provides a large format option that integrates with the DSM400 gyrostabilised mount, creating a compact and lightweight system for use in a wide range of aircraft. The iXM-RS 280F with its 90 mm lenses captures high quality RGB imagery and generates a central projection image from the two 150MP nadir images with equal ground resolution. The camera has a new generation CMOS sensor which eliminates motion blur by using high-speed shutters (up to 1/2500 sec) and higher sensitivity pixel design.

An additional configuration of the system is possible: The iXM 280MP 4-band system adds a 50 mm lens to the dual 90 mm lenses for capturing NIR imagery in addition to the RGB imagery.

The integrated iX Capture software automatically generates distortion-free 4-band images by performing an accurate matching of NIR image to an RGB image, creating precise and reliable output data, including TIFF and JPG formats, 4-Band RGB+NIR (RGBN), 3-Band CIR (colour infrared), Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and distortion-free / corrected RGB and NIR.

The company’s standard warranty includes the free repair of all manufacturing defects for one year. The standard one-year warranty can be extended to the annual Premium Warranty Package which includes uptime unit during the repair period with delivery time of 1 week (excluding shipping) and free 500 000 shutter releases maintenance and service.
