UAV Payload | Phase One P3 for inspection drones

P3 Payload

Unmatched inspection productivity

P3 UAV Payload delivering the finest details from the furthest distance

Designed to maximize the productivity of any inspection project where time, safety, and image details are paramount for success, P3 Payload provides you with the right tools to achieve unmatched performance.

Featuring a medium format sensor 1.7 times larger than other cameras, Phase One iXM captures more details in each frame saving you tremendous mission time.

Our iXM cameras are uniquely designed for UAVs and are fast, highly responsive, robust, and easily integrate with your aerial photography drone for diverse inspection and mapping missions. iXM cameras are available with a range of RSM lenses to ensure that your Phase One P3 Payload gives you the best image quality and performance.

Best-in-class sensor performance

Make the most of every flight by capturing more in every shot with the largest image sensor.

Flexible configuration for every need

Get more value out of your inspection by switching between vertical and horizontal configurations to collect data faster and reduce background noise.

More details from a distance

Get detailed data from the safest distance while covering a large area choosing from a variety of our lenses.

Smart capture for robust results

Make every shot count. Capture easily complex assets and moving objects with smart focusing and triggering.

Productivity Drivers

Longest focal length 150mm lens

Longer distance – more details – increased safety
  • The lens offering increases productivity and ensures safe operation, without compromising on image quality
  • All Phase One lenses are factory-calibrated to the highest quality standards
  • Best coverage to GSD ratio

Largest image sensor

More coverage – fewer images – faster missions

The iXM medium format sensor has been the benchmark for many years for high-resolution aerial photography. This medium format sensor is 1.7 times larger than a standard 35mm full-frame sensor, which translates directly into inspection productivity.

iXM medium format sensor for DJI Drones

Highest dynamic range

Extended operations – higher availability

The iXM reaches superior performance in low light & high contrast situations, thanks to its dynamic range of 83dB, low noise, and optimized pixel size.

Smart focus

Smart focus – sharper images – no repetition

Onsite inspection productivity depends on the ability to capture the correct data. End-to-end productivity means that the data has to constantly be of high quality. Phase One P3 Payload uses a smart focus system to ensure sharpness and consistent image quality.
