A Revolution in UAV and Drone Cameras
Phase One Industrial developed the iXM series – revolutionary and uniquely designed cameras for UAV-based aerial imagery that redefine the boundaries of technological innovation.
Our Most Innovative Camera to Date
A breakthrough medium-format camera driven by the world’s fastest imaging sensor. Engineered for UAV-based imaging missions, the iXM 100MP is a high-productivity metric aerial camera with a range of high-resolution lenses.
The camera incorporates the first medium-format sensor with backside-illumination technology, which enables high light sensitivity and extension of the dynamic range.
Fast, highly responsive, robust, and easily integrated with UAVs, the iXM 100MP delivers superior quality aerial imaging and flexible operation to satisfy diverse mapping, surveying, and inspection applications.
Four new Phase One RSM lenses, with focal lengths ranging from 35mm to 150mm, seamlessly fit the new sensor, ensuring exceptional sharpness across the image.
The iXM’s large-area sensor delivers a close-and-detailed look at all an object’s parts. This enables predictive maintenance for inspection missions of power lines, wind turbines, roads, bridges, and pipelines as well as forestry and agriculture. It not only reduces the costs and the risky operations of ground teams, but also increases the speed and precision of collecting data.
With the motorized-lens functionality, the camera captures sharp and highly detailed images of multi-distance or 3D objects. The 80 mm and 150 mm lenses are ideal for a wide range of inspection applications.
Phase One Industrial offers a precision-driven solution that simplifies surveying and mapping processes. It provides professionals with unlimited aerial data, while saving time, money, and human resources.
Our metric cameras, with a selection of 35mm and 80mm RSM lenses, enable the user to effortlessly execute photogrammetry and mapping missions, capture high-resolution images, and create 2D and 3D maps. The iXM camera is a superior geosystem compared to other systems available on the market today.
Choice of RSM Lenses
Five new Phase One RSM lenses, with focal lengths ranging from 35mm to 300mm AF, were specifically created to fit the pixel and sensor size while maintaining sharpness across the image. The lenses have high optical resolution, offering new uses for both inspection and mapping applications. The lenses’ integrated leaf shutter offers high capture speed for an array of flight conditions.
