New UAV-based cameras and motorised lenses

May 3rd, 2018, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Phase One Industrial launched its iXM series: an aerial camera platform with a medium-format imaging sensor. Engineered for UAV-imaging missions, the 100 MP camera is a high-productivity metric camera with a range of high-resolution lenses. It is ready for integration with a wide range of UAV platforms, including Phase One’s DJI Matrice 600 Pro solution. The camera incorporates a medium-format sensor with backside-illumination technology, enabling high light sensitivity and extended dynamic range. Fast, responsive, robust, and weatherproof (IP53 compliant), the camera delivers high quality aerial imaging and flexible operation for diverse mapping, surveying, and inspection applications. The company has also announced four new RSM lenses with focal lengths ranging from 35 to 150 mm to fit the new sensor’s 3,76 μm pixel size and 33 x 44 mm frame size, ensuring image sharpness across the entire field of view. The lenses are available with either fixed-focus or motorised-focus functionality. The fixed-focus 35 mm and 80 mm lenses provide high image radiometric quality, high ground resolution, and large coverage for surveying applications. The motorized-focus 80 mm and 150 mm lenses are suited for a wide range of inspection applications.
