After extensive testing, Event 38 is releasing another all-new camera option for E384/6 users. The Sony RX1R II is a 42 Megapixel, full frame camera that produces the highest quality imagery ever from an Event 38 aircraft.
The RX1R II is able to produce ground resolutions of 1.35cm/pixel at 100m AGL flying height. It can be used to produce particularly detailed orthomosaics and elevation models. Alternatively, the extreme resolution could allow the ability to fly higher and cover much larger areas at moderate resolution very efficiently. Contact us to learn more about the best aircraft configuration for each situation.
The high resolution imagery also improves PPK GPS results, and the RX1R II is compatible with PPK GPS on certain aircraft configurations. The high resolution makes it easier to identify the location of GCPs more accurately.
The RX1R II is ready to ship now with new Event 38 aircraft and can be added to existing E384 units with certain upgrades. Please contact us for more information or to see sample imagery.
