PAS 280i

The most cost-effective aerial mapping solution

The most cost-effective aerial mapping solution

The PAS 280i, with over 20.000 RGB pixels across flight direction, is an effective large format aerial solution of 280 MP combined with a 150 MP NIR camera. This ensures a higher return on investment than other large-format systems. PAS 880i is based on the PAS 280i solution, enabling a seamless upgrade to a full oblique system, ensuring a future proof and effective investment and flexibility in service offering.

The 280MP Aerial System offers the highest image capture rate and dynamic range, increasing the overall quality and accuracy of the final photogrammetric products.

The iXM-RS 280F provides a large format option that easily integrates with the GSM4000 gyrostabilized mount, creating a lightweight system for use in a wider range of aircraft.

The iXM-RS 280F is a dual-lens metric camera, with 90mm lenses for capturing RGB information, and providing superior image quality. The 280MP camera generates a central projection image from two 150MP nadir images with equal ground resolution.

The aerial system is comprised of our dedicated controller with GNSS-inertial; an IMU unit; a Somag gyro-stabilized mount (DSM4000) and the Phase One new generation iX Suite software (iX Plan, iX Flight Pro and iX Process), providing the user best quality images and navigation data within the shortest time.
