Atmos UAV, a leading innovator in the VTOL mapping drone industry, is excited to announce the integration of the new Sony a6100 Oblique camera into its flagship surveying drone, the Marlyn Cobalt. This strategic partnership with Sony further solidifies Atmos UAV's commitment to providing state-of-the-art solutions to professionals in the geospatial mapping and surveying sectors.

The Sony a6100 Oblique camera is a revolutionary addition to the Marlyn Cobalt, which combines Sony's 24MP a6100 with a Meike 12mm lens, providing an excellent solution for cost-effective, lower-resolution surveying and produces fantastic 3D models for urban surveys.

Competitive Pricing 
One of the primary advantages of the Sony a6100 Oblique integration is its competitive pricing. As the entry-level cousin to the workhorsea7RIV 61MP camera, the a6100 comes in at a 20% lower price point, whilst still managing a respectable 4cm [1.5in] GSD at 400 feet. This allows professionals to access high-quality imagery without breaking the bank.

Unmatched Oblique Information for Urban 3D Mapping 
The 12mm wide angle lens, and fixed angled mounting empowers the a6100 Oblique to capture a high quality of data on vertical surfaces, allowing for a comprehensive view of urban environments during 3D mapping missions. This feature significantly enhances data collection efficiency and improves the accuracy of 3D models, giving surveyors and urban planners unparalleled insights for their projects.

‍Expanded Coverage with Exceptional Resolution 
With the integration of the 'Sony a6100 Oblique' camera, the 'Marlyn Cobalt' now boasts an impressive 350-hectare coverage at 400 feet. This means that surveyors can efficiently cover vast areas in a single flight, reducing operational time and costs. The resulting ground sampling distance (GSD) of 4cm at that altitude ensures high-resolution data acquisition, delivering sharp and detailed images for precise analysis.
