Significantly improve throughput of surveying with high-speed flight and camera technology
Shutter speed and flight speed were the roadblocks for high-throughput surveying. ACSL enables high throughput using proprietary control technology that enables the PF1 to fly up to 50km/h, coupled with a customized quad-lens camera.

Clear images at high flight speed
Until recently, the speed at which measurement and surveying could be performed was limited by image capture speed and flight speed. ACSL’s PF1 can fly faster than 50km/h (31mph) using our proprietary control technology. Taking high-quality aerial photographs with a mechanical shutter is possible thanks to the high capture frequency of the quad-lens camera.
Rescue support in disaster scene
ACSL joined the recovery mission led by the Cabinet Office, MLIT, and FDMA of Japan to deploy drones over a disaster site in Toho village, caused by heavy rain in the Kyushu prefecture on July 5th 2017. PF1-Survey completed a 6km (3km and back) flight in 11 minutes. Along with high resolution video captured by the flight recorder, PF1-Survey's quad-lens camera helped to create a high resolution orthomosaic photo of the disaster scene. This achievement demonstrates how drones can be useful in disaster recovery missions.
- Mining surveys
- Significant reduction in surveying time via aerial survey of mining areas.
- Agriculture sensing
- Images taken by PF1-Survey can be utilized for agricultural sensing, such as growth monitoring.
- Building surveys
- Buildings and factories can be surveyed to build detailed 3D models.
ACSL has partnered with Xacti to develop a quad-lens camera that can take clear, high-resolution images, even when flying at speeds as high as 50km/h.
From an altitude of 50m, PF1-Survey can be used to build 3D models with accuracy within 2cm. Roughly 37 hectares can be surveyed in a single 15min. flight.
Auto route planning
ACSL's ground control software automatically plans the best flight route given the area to be surveyed, the camera used, and the amount of image overlap required to perform precise 3D mapping.
