Phase One iX Controller MK5

iX Controller MK5

Faster, more productive image capture

Phase-One-Aerial_systems_MK2_PAS

Our latest-generation iX Controller offers a robust onboard command center that addresses the challenges of aerial data acquisition and improves your productivity on airborne mapping missions. A precision GNSS-Inertial is now integrated inside the controller simplifying the setup of Phase One Aerial Systems and making direct georeferencing possible without ground control points. A range of integrated GNSS-inertial and IMU options is available for the iX Controller MK5 to support your required application and accuracy levels.

Phase One Aerial System configurations with iX Controller MK5

GNSS-inertial features

  • High-performance, survey-grade multi-frequency integrated GNSS-Inertial receiver.
  • Lower field costs: When direct geo-referencing is used, the number of ground control points established by the survey crew is significantly reduced and as a result, field costs decrease.
  • Faster completion: For many photo projects, the aerotriangulation (AT) step is eliminated, reducing processing time significantly, which is a major factor in rapid response applications.
  • Seamless workflows: Data workflow and quality control is streamlined and automated, which allows tight project deadlines to be met with a smaller ground survey and in less time.
  • POSPac MMS post-processing software bundle includes Carrier Phase DGPS processing, integrated GNSS-Inertial processing, and optional photogrammetry toolset for EO generation, IMU boresight calibration, and quality control.

GNSS/IMU configurations for variable accuracy levels

Different GNSS-Inertial configurations are available to meet your application and accuracy levels requirements. High-altitude flights for direct georeferencing applications usually require the iX Controller MK5-AP610 configuration, and low-altitude flights for aero-triangulation applications usually use the iX Controller MK5-AP310 configuration.

  • iX Controller MK5-AP180 (IMU – 69)
  • iX Controller MK5-AP310 (IMU – 82)
  • iX Controller MK5-AP510 (IMU – 91)
  • iX Controller MK5-AP610 (IMU – 57)
