Phase One iXM-RS280F

iXM-RS280F

The new standard in large format aerial imaging

Phase One’s 280MP metric camera has dual 90mm lenses for capturing RGB information and providing superior image quality. The iXM-RS280F camera generates a central projection image from two 150MP nadir images with equal ground resolution. This large-format camera uses backside-illuminated CMOS sensors with a very high dynamic range at 83dB, enabling customers to fly more hours per day and achieve more flights per year.

280MP resolution

The iXM-RS 280F is a large format option with a resolution with over 20,000 pixels across. It provides the highest image capture rate and dynamic range, increasing overall quality and accuracy of the final photogrammetric products.

The new generation of CMOS sensor eliminates motion blur thanks to shorter exposure times, enabled by using high-speed shutters (up to 1/2000 sec) and higher sensitivity pixel design. Combined with RS shutter technology, the camera provides tack sharp images, overcoming cameras with other FMC capabilities.

  • 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
  • Compact and lightweight system for use in a wide range of aircraft

4-Band configuration

Phase One offers an additional configuration for the simultaneous capturing of RGB and NIR images. The combination of an iXM-RS280F camera with dual 90mm lenses for capturing RGB imagery and an additional NIR camera with 50mm lens provides 4-band (R,G,B,NIR) or CIR imagery.
