Phase One Redefines Large Format Aerial Imaging – Launches 280MP Aerial System
Challenges the Status Quo with Imaging Precision, Flexibility, and Affordability.
COPENHAGEN, March 23, 2020 – Phase One, a pioneer in digital imaging excellence, today launched the 280MP Aerial system – a large format aerial photogrammetric system, with an image coverage width of more than 20,000 pixels – enabling unprecedented high-quality aerial survey productivity. Compact and lightweight, this new aerial mapping solution can reduce operating costs and produce better returns on investment than today’s traditional large format systems.
The Phase One 280MP Aerial System is a large format camera system that easily integrates with DSM400 gyro-stabilized mount creating a compact and lightweight system for use in a wide range of aircraft. At its heart, the iXM-RS 280F is a dual-lens metric camera, with 90mm lenses for capturing RGB information, providing precision imaging. Adding a near-infrared (NIR) camera generates a 4-band configuration, most useful in agriculture & forestry, and pipeline monitoring missions.
The iXM-RS280F camera generates a central projection image from two 150MP nadir images with equal ground resolution. The cameras’ backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor supports very high dynamic range at 83dB. Its high light sensitivity provides superb image quality in challenging low light conditions, enabling operators to take advantage of more flight hours per day and more flight days per year.
Dov Kalinski, General Manager of Phase One said, “Our 280MP Aerial System is a bold and innovative approach to solving customers’ demands for affordable and reliable aerial mapping performance. Previously, opportunities in the aerial mapping business were restricted due to the high cost of equipment and limited aircraft options. While pioneering superior image quality, Phase One Industrial is creating more profitable possibilities in this exciting and important market.”
