Aerial Solutions

Phase One offers a range of aerial solutions to specifically address the challenges of imaging data acquisition for photogrammetric mapping and mesh modelling, helping our customers to increase productivity and reduce costs & time

oblique aerial imagery camera PAS 880i

Our aerial solutions are built upon our superior quality imaging sensors, offering the sharpest and distortion-free images along with accurate geospatial information. The modern iX Suite software ensures the efficiency and stability from flight planning to data delivery in a user-friendly way. The solutions provide high accuracy output within the minimum total cost and time.

PAS 880i NIR, Oblique and Nadir System

The most efficient solution for wide-area mapping and 3D city modelling. PAS 880i is a large-format nadir and oblique aerial solution comprises four oblique RGB cameras of 150 MP and for nadir, a 280 MP RGB and a 150 MP NIR camera integrated into a single pod to simultaneously capture photogrammetric imagery.

PAS 280i

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.

iX Suite – Software for Aerial Systems

Phase One iX Suite is designed to handle all aspects of photogrammetric project workflows, from flight planning to the creation of commercial format images. The software includes iX Plan, iX Flight Pro, and iX Process.

Is Bayer Pattern better than Pan Sharpening?

Yes! With Bayer Pattern Image Sensors, fewer cameras are needed per ground area which means that a multi camera system can cover more area and/or provide higher resolution than a Pan Sharpening solution.
