PAS 880

Oblique & Nadir Aerial System

PAS-880-Oblique-System-product-2

Accurate and Affordable Large Format Nadir & Oblique Aerial System

Phase One introduces its impressive PAS 880 Large Format Nadir and Oblique System. A 280MP nadir camera with four 150MP oblique cameras are integrated into a single pod to simultaneously capture photogrammetric 2D and 3D digital imagery.

Phase One Oblique Solution

Highest Performance and Productivity

PAS 880 provides 20,000 pixels across flight lines for the nadir and 14,000 pixels for each of the oblique cameras.

An unbeatable performance of 2 frames per second enables 80% forward overlap at high speed.

The combination of 90mm/150mm lenses for nadir and oblique ensures balanced ground resolution products for all cameras. The central leaf shutter provides speed up to 1/2500 sec. eliminating motion blur. The 3,76μm BSI pixels ensures sharp images under any light condition.

PAS 880 delivers the highest quality and accuracy in mapping imagery.

A new generation of Phase One flight and sensor management software

Data Capture Workflow

The PAS 880 system uses Phase One’s intuitive software package designed to handle all aspects of photogrammetric project workflows, from flight planning to creating commercial format images.

The software package includes:

  • iX Plan for mission planning
  • iX Flight Pro for flight director, data collection, real-time image status and an option to change flight lines during the mission.
  • iX Process for high-quality image processing.

Phase One designed an open system to allow for additional processing with third-party photogrammetric applications.

iX Plan is a user-friendly tool that provides extensive planning capabilities by importing area definition, DEM, GCP locations and reference maps. The preferred line direction is drawn and the selected polygon is then automatically filled with photography lines at the correct GSD, overlap and side lap. With iX Plan:

  • Flight lines can be edited.
  • Quality control GSD and coverage ensure that the planning covers all requirements.
  • Flight plans can be exported to Microsoft Excel for quick estimation of project cost.
  • The flight plan can be exported from iX Plan to iX Flight Pro for flight management.

iX Flight Pro, integrated in the PAS 880 control unit, 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.

The flight director module provides position altitude and speed commands to the pilot based on mission design and planned tolerances. This easy to follow flight director graphical display enables the execution of long missions with low pilot fatigue, resulting in higher mission safety and quality. The operator monitor aids mission and image collection management. A graphical collection summary ensures that all images are captured at the correct locations and quality within the required speed and height tolerances.

Continuously displayed images and exposure value graphs allow the operator to manage camera parameters for best image acquisitions. Post-flight reports are used to decide whether the mission was successfully completed.

iX Process converts the mission data into commercial images ready for photogrammety processing. iX Process can process large quantities of images in batches. An intuitive user interface enables generating and saving processing recipes. The recipes can then be used to process batch jobs on selected files or directories, and iX Process will display the job’s progress. iX Process enables easy export of images in TIFF, metric-corrected TIFF, or jpeg files.

Direct georeferencing is essential for cost-effective photogrammetry processing. Phase One’s PAS 880 system software includes the Applanix POSPac, the Aided-Inertial post-processing software package for mapping applications.

Inaccessible regions without Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) can be mapped without the cost of deploying local base stations. POSPac uses data recorded by the onboard flight unit and the Trimble® RTX™ technology (or a customer base station) to provide centimeter-level precise trajectory and image 6 DOF lists, enabling direct georeferencing.
