The new iXM-RS150F is a highly productive 150- mega pixel aerial survey camera.
Equipped with a new full frame sensor (14204 x 10652), and with a 3.76-micrometer pixel size it enables higher ground resolution from a higher flight altitude and provides a larger aerial coverage resulting in higher aerial survey productivity.
The camera uses backside-illuminated CMOS sensor technology with a high dynamic range of 83 dB allowing higher image quality even in low light conditions, enabling more flight hours a day and more flight days a year.
A very fast image capture rate of 2 frames per second enables flights with larger forward overlap, required for high quality 3D city models
- Wide aerial coverage
- Exceptional accuracy and image quality
- Seven RS lens options
- Scalability to form multi-camera arrays
- Easy integration with aerial systems
The four-band solution comprising the RGB and Achromatic camera models, in which images are captured in RGB and NIR bands simultaneously, and then processed automatically to generate distortion-free images and perform fine co-registration of the pixels from NIR to the RGB images.
This function is extremely useful for remote sensing and mapping applications in the field of agriculture, forestry and environment monitoring.
The 4-Band solution includes two synchronized cameras (RGB and NIR) in addition to the iX Controller, Somag stabilizer, Applanix GPS/IMU unit and the Phase One flight planning and management software iX Plan and iX Flight as well as iX Capture software to control camera during flight.
iX Capture software is also used to generate distortion-free images and to perform accurate matching of the NIR image to the RGB image.
iX Capture outputs the following products:
- 4-Band combined NIR and RGB (RGBN)
- 3-Band (CIR) combined NIR and RGB (NRG)
- NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index)
- Original and distortion-free RGB & NIR images
