Phase One, a developer of digital imaging technologies, will showcase the new iXM-GS120 aerial camera at GEOINT 2022.

Developed for national security, geospatial intelligence, and search & rescue operations, the 630-gram 120MP digital imaging system can fly on Group 3 tactical unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), as well as fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters.

To ensure reliable maintenance-free operations on lengthy geo-intelligence missions, Phase One designed the iXM-GS120 system around global shutter sensor technology. This digital shutter requires less maintenance than a mechanical one, especially in harsh environmental conditions, and it reduces the potential for failures that could cause downtime in remote airborne activities.

“Phase One developed the iXM-GS120 airborne system with speed and efficiency in mind, offering a remarkable seven frame-per-second capture rate and broad dynamic range,” said Dana Brown, Phase One Director of Business Development. “We created it for applications where every image frame is critical.”

The high-sensitivity, low-noise technology gives the camera an ability to collect data in low-light conditions, thereby expanding its operating window by several hours per day – ideal for wide-area persistent surveillance (WAPS) applications and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. The single-sensor design combined with 120MP resolution guarantees fast collection of detailed information over a wide area of interest in every frame, reducing flight times and enhancing collection efficiency.
