With over 20,000 pixels across, and compact size and weight, the 280MP Aerial System (PAS 280) provides a higher return on investment compared to any other large-format aerial solution available on the market.
280MP Aerial System
The Phase One 280MP Aerial System offers the highest image capture rate and dynamic range, increasing the overall quality and accuracy of the final photogrammetric products.
The aerial solution provides a large format option that is compact and lightweight, for use in a wide range of aircraft.
PAS 280 MK2 is comprised of a camera, iX Controller with integrated Applanix GNSS-Inertial, Somag gyro-stabilized mount (DSM 400), IMU unit, and Phase One flight planning and management software – iX Plan, iX Flight, and iX Capture.
Phase One offers additional configuration for simultaneous capturing of RGB and NIR images. The 280MP 4-Band Aerial System is comprised of the iXM-RS280F metric camera with dual 90mm lenses for capturing RGB data, and an additional NIR camera with 50mm lens for capturing NIR data – thus providing 4-band (R,G,B,NIR) or CIR imagery.
The integrated iX Capture software automatically generates distortion-free 4-band images by performing an accurate matching of a NIR image to an RGB image, creating precise and reliable output data.
- TIFF and JPG formats
- 4-band RGB+NIR (RGBN)
- 3-band CIR (Color Infra Red)
- NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index)
- Distortion-free / corrected RGB
- Distortion-free / corrected NIR
iXM-RS 280F Aerial Camera
The iXM-RS 280F is a dual lens metric aerial camera with 90mm lenses for capturing RGB information, and providing superior image quality. The iXM-RS 280F camera generates central projection image from two 150MP nadir images with equal ground resolution.
- Backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor
- Wide dynamic range
- Improved light sensitivity
- More flying hours per day and more flights achievable per year
- Maintains object resolution in low light conditions
The iX Controller acts as a central hub to Phase One Aerial Systems, with its integrated GNSS-Intertial, the controller operates the cameras, gyro-stabilizing mount, IMU system, and runs iX Capture and iX Flight software.
SOMAG GYRO-STABILIZED MOUNT (DSM400)
Specifically designed for the Phase One Aerial Solution. With a low weight of 14 kg and a high payload of 35 kg, the mount supports the reduction of the angular rate and provides optimal stabilization of the system.
The Phase One 280MP Aerial Systems are available with different GNSS and IMU configurations to meet your application and accuracy levels requirements.
iX Suite - Software
With its intuitive GUI and multiple control functions, the iX Plan application enables users to simply generate flight plans.
iX Flight PRO
iX Flight Pro contains all functions needed for flight management and image collection, from engine start to post-landing. It serves as a flight management center, interfacing with all hardware such as cameras, Applanix GNSS/IMU, Somag stabilizer, and pilot/operator monitors.
iX Process is the ultimate review station and tool for converting images to commercial formats. The software presents images in a geographical context. It enables you to automatically select relevant images, resolve duplications, and ensure flight parameters are met to create a “working set” that can be converted to TIFF and JPG formats.
