GGS GmbH from Germany, one of Phase One‘s integration partners, has an excellent reputation for innovation and integrating IMU/GNSS and flight management system (FMS) solutions. Dr. Gerhard Kemper, owner of GGS, recently trailed iXU-RS1900 metric cameras in several commercial projects to develop a system that could be used in multiple applications.
AM/NS Calvert Steel Mill uses a Phase One Industrial iXM 100MP medium format imagery to meet new regulatory commercial-grade requirements on data collected for asset inspection. Additional benefits were realized when the project was completed with a 70% time-saving.
Airbus Defence and Space acquired Phase One Industrial iXM-100 cameras to be integrated as a payload in the ALTAIR airship.
The airship's large payload capacity allows for more than one sensor system for 3D mapping and was used recently for a pilot project between Airbus, vaireco and MVV Energie AG to generate high-definition thermal 3D models using a combination of infrared (IR) and RGB data captured simultaneously.
Storage cranes at Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG’s (HHLA) modern and efficient shipment yard require an annual survey of over 30km of rail per terminal. A research team at TU Braunschweig - AEROINSPEKT, has developed a system to perform airborne measurement of critical infrastructure in operation, thus reducing downtime required by manned ground inspection.
The University of Saskatchewan Plant Sciences team conducts extensive agricultural phenotype research and requires precision imagery for digital phenotyping and genomics for crop breeding.
In 2018, Draganfly and the Plant Sciences team sought a new solution with higher resolution images to help achieve more actionable insights.
Phoenix LiDAR Systems partnered with German based Black Forest Motion, experts in camera motion control, to offer their customers next-level technology solutions. iXM-100 cameras were purchased to fill a niche by providing motion controlled applications ranging from time-lapse and Giga-pixel photography to fully autonomous turntable photogrammetry scan setups.
