Phase One unveiled the PAS 880, a fully integrated large-format nadir and oblique camera system for aerial mapping. The PAS 880 integrates a 280MP nadir camera with four 150MP oblique cameras in a single pod to simultaneously capture 2D and 3D photogrammetric digital images.

The exceptional image quality and accuracy, combined with an unmatched data collection rate, make the PAS 880 the most productive large format aerial mapping solution on the market today, based on the well-established Phase technology. One, ”said Dov Kalinski, vice president of geospatial activities for Phase One. .

Operating at a capture rate of 2 fps, the PAS 880 covers extremely wide flight lines with 20,000 pixels in diameter at nadir and 14,000 pixels in each of the oblique angles. The system can operate at various speeds, altitudes and lighting conditions for blur-free and economical image collection, with a maximum spatial resolution of 2.5 centimeters at 600 meters elevation. The combination of 90mm nadir and 150mm oblique camera lenses ensures balanced ground resolution.

City mapping

According to the first phase, the high-resolution 2D images collected by the PAS 880 will meet or exceed the traditional nadir photogrammetric mapping requirements supported with oblique images, while the combination of nadir and oblique for 3D data will be suitable. perfectly suited to urban mapping and associated applications. where a 360 degree perspective is required. These include smart city management such as municipal planning and environmental monitoring as well as insurance, asset inventories, tax appraisal, computer simulations, reality / digital twin capture and modeling. mass.

“We have designed the PAS 880 with the same reliability and accessibility that our aerial mapping customers expect from a Phase One solution, ensuring a return on investment unmatched by other oblique and nadir systems,” said Kalinski.

The PAS 880 is a tightly coupled hardware and software system. Each system comes with a fully integrated high level GNSS / IMU, where customers can choose between two levels of accuracy.

The PAS 880 is equipped with the next generation of Phase One sensor and flight management software, developed for effective, efficient and economical management of the entire oblique and nadir data capture workflow. The software includes iX Plan for mission planning; iX Flight Pro for flight management, data collection and image status monitoring; and iX Process for fast, high-quality image processing. Phase One designed an open system to allow further processing with third party photogrammetric applications.
