Phase One Industrial, a provider of medium- and large-format metric cameras and imaging solutions for aerial applications, has signed an agreement with Acecore Technologies, a developer and manufacturer of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for cinema and creative, industrial, and security markets.
Together, these companies’ high-end products are opening new opportunities in drone-based high-accuracy mapping and inspection markets.
“The integration of the Phase One iXM camera with the Acecore drone allows full control from the ground, preventing unexpected errors that would require repeated flights and therefore saves precious time,” said Koen Vrints, Professional UAV Surveyor at Koen Vrints BVBA.
Phase One Industrial developed the iXM series – revolutionary and uniquely designed cameras for UAV-based aerial imagery that redefine the boundaries of technological innovation. The iXM 100MP and iXM 50MP are high-productivity metric cameras with a range of specially designed RSM lenses. The iXM cameras are ready for easy integration with a wide range of UAV platforms, delivering superior quality aerial imaging and flexible operation to satisfy diverse mapping, surveying, and inspection applications.
Under the new agreement, Acecore will support Phase One Industrial’s iXM range of cameras in the UAV market for high-accuracy mapping and inspection. Acecore will be using the iXM camera in three drone models: ZOE, NEO and NOA, offering fast and efficient, simple, and reliable UAV solutions. The Acecore NOA flagship model can fly up to 45 minutes with any PhaseOne iXM / iXM-RS camera and lens option.
Acecore has given operators full control over the Phase One Industrial cameras’ features during flight. All iXM / iXM-RS range cameras can be seamlessly swapped from a traditional bottom mount to a top mount configuration. The latter will prove especially useful whilst inspecting structures, such as bridges, from the bottom up.
