Phase One Industrial launched the iXM-RS metric camera series and new Aerial Systems. The flagship iXM-RS150F camera is full frame, 150 megapixels and available in RGB and Achromatic models. Its ultra-high resolution (14204 x10652) backside illuminated CMOS sensor, fast capture speed (2 fps) and enhanced light sensitivity enable increased productivity in a wide range of aerial image acquisition projects. The iXM-RS camera is the imaging heart of Phase One Industrial’s Aerial System — a fully integrated solution for mapping and surveying.
The two new 150- and 100-megapixel iXM-RS cameras feature Phase One Industrial’s proven RS lens series with seven field replaceable focal length options, ranging from 32mm to 150mm. Designed and built for aerial photography by Rodenstock and Schneider Kreuznach, these lenses are factory calibrated for infinity focus and each is equipped with a central 1/2500 sec. leaf shutter.
Flexible configurations boost productivity
Phase One Industrial also introduces a new addition to its fully integrated Aerial Systems: a 150MP configuration with either a single frame sensor for RGB imaging or a four-band Aerial System with dual frame sensors for RGB and NIR imaging. Each Aerial System includes the camera and additional components, such as: the iX Controller, Somag stabilizer, Applanix GPS/ IMU unit and the Phase One flight planning and management software iX Plan and iX Flight.
The new iXM-RS150F and iXM-RS100F single frame cameras introduced can be used standalone for photogrammetric work, or as part of a multi-camera array for customized applications, including high-resolution oblique camera systems and Lidar systems. They can also be easily integrated with other popular flight management systems and GPS/IMU receivers.
The Phase One Industrial iXM camera platform supports multiple interfaces for camera controls and storage, including USB-C interface to enable faster yet flexible data transfer or longer cable length with 10G Ethernet (with either fiber or copper options). Also included are local storage with XQD cards, HDMI output with 2K video, and overlays to support high-end integration of UAVs.
