Texo Drone Survey and Inspection (Texo DSI) has bolstered its commercial operations by integrating the 100MP aerial camera into its fleet.
The iXM camera by Phase One Industrial represents a breakthrough aerial camera platform driven by the world’s fastest medium-format imaging sensor.
With in-flight focus functionality, this system has been engineered specifically for UAV-imaging missions.
The iXM 100MP is a metric camera with a range of high-resolution lenses. Texo’s new iXM payload is ready for integration with a wide range of platforms from within its fleet.
The ability to focus lenses live in-flight enables a number of new uses for inspection applications where the focusing distance can be carried out in real time by the pilot. This functionality coupled with the sheer quality of resolution will represent a new standard for close visual inspection in terms of data acquisition.
David Williams, chief operations officer for Texo DSI, said: “We have made another significant capital investment in this payload which further enhances and improves our commitment to innovation.”
Williams added: “The benefit of in-flight lens focus on this system will help us to continue to raise the standard in service delivery and data acquisition for our clients.”
This payload system is being integrated within Texo’s fleet of UAVs and a further announcement will follow in respect of its integration with the company’s BVLOS unmanned helicopter system.
Since its inception, Texo DSI has developed a suite of UAV deployed survey and inspection services, bringing to market a number of world-first technologies.
