MIRO AIRBORNE (monochrome or colour) CAMERA:
THE IDEAL SOLUTION FOR AIRBORNE APPLICATIONS
Easily managing uncontrollable and constantly changing lighting situations.
Combining the best features of the popular Phantom Miro 3 and Miro eX4,
the Miro Airborne's compact, lightweight yet rugged form, in combination
with its impressive balance of resolution, speed, non-volatile memory
and light sensitivity, provides everything needed for successful high-speed
digital imaging for airborne applications.
ARE THE KEY CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PHANTOM MIRO AIRBORNE CAMERA?
||The CMOS active-pixel sensor's
rating of 4800 (monochrome) 1200 (colour) ensures the light-sensitivity
required in high-speed imaging. Access to all 12-bit grayscale
information means that details in shadows resulting
from uncontrollable and fluctuating lighting conditions, can be seen.
||Play and rewind can be executed in normal or fast mode or the sequence
can be stepped through, one frame at a time.
||Trimming the movie is as easy as setting in-points and out-points
prior to saving.
||Successful motion analysis is enhanced by operating with shutter
speeds that range from 2usecs to 1/Frame Rate allowing objects
to be frozen in motion
||Fully controllable frame rates from 10fps to 1265fps full
resolution and Continuously Adjustable Resolution (CAR) down
to 32x8 pixels with higher frame rates.
||Connect to a PC with 10/100 Ethernet for additional camera programming
and control, and to retrieve test images in later analysis and processing.
Connect to a standard analog video monitor (PAL or NTSC) for real-time
monitoring of the camera image or for playback of images
stored in the camera’s memory, providing an easy testing of
camera readiness prior to filming. Camera live video can also be fed
into the aircraft's telemetry system for ground station monitoring.
||The Miro Airborne has two types of memory: 2GB
(4 GB optional) volatile internal high-performance DRAM memory for
high-speed capture; and a Type 1 removable CompactFlash™ card
for storage, to which files can be copied and stored after triggering.
||1" C-mount, C- to F-mount adapter for using F-mount lenses
||Lens mounting holes provide anchorage for additional lens support
and flange mount Hi-G and vibration-resistant lenses. Mounting plates
on two sides of the camera provide plenty of options providing standard
¼-20 mounting holes. The plates are removable and replaceable
with custom plates.
||Successful images can still be obtained at up to 40Gs of acceleration.
All internal electrical components are conformally coated to protect
against damp/humid environments
|| Images are taken according to preset options and the camera stores
them in a circular buffer in internal memory. Should a setting be
changed, the change can be viewed immediately on the built-in LCD
or on an external monitor. The camera can also be set so that a trigger
(from external hardware, an on-camera trigger button or software on
a connected PC) starts the recording, stops the recording, or records
a selectable number of frames before and after the trigger. An extra
feature is the ability to set the camera to trigger on motion that
occurs within the image. It also includes strobe out for light flash,
Irig in, FSync for multi-camera synching and more.
||Time stamping each image is possible via IRIG-B input
giving a GPS-derived time reference for the camera if running asynchronous
to IRIG timing. Frame synchronisation to GPS timing by phase-locking
to IRIG allows synchronisation of the camera to a time standard or
to other cameras without additional wiring.
||Using the Phantom software provided, slow-motion movies can be saved
in popular formats such as Quick Time or AVI, and frames saved as
JPEG or TIFF images. If the camera is set up with the Phantom software,
the settings will be retained even after power down enabling camera
deployment untethered to the PC.
