Micasense Professional Multispectral Sensors Guide

Micasense Professional Multispectral Sensors Guide

Accurate information for your fields starts with quality sensors. Micasense offers professional multispectral cameras, namely: RedEdge-M, RedEdge-MX, and Altum; optimized for use in drones, with narrow band filters, calibrated outputs, and a size and weight that allows integration with all types of unmanned aircraft.

Micasense Professional Multispectral Sensors Guide: The Sensor that doesn't compromise! 

Integrates with almost any drones and contains many no moving parts generating data you can count on even in the toughest environments. It collects data in multiple outputs in one flight and it takes calibrated repeatable measurements to generate not only basic crop health diseases but also advance analytics. The Micasense Professional Multispectral Sensors are compact and powerful, yet extremely flexible. It captures five spectral bands at once, that means it gives you the RED, GREEN, BLUE, RedEdge and near-rare infrared bands. But the dedicated life sensor for better reflectance calibration, provides unparalleled accuracy. The RedEdge product line has been tested and proven worldwide. See why agricultural professionals around the world recognize it as the industry standard.

  • Works with the drone and software you already have
  • Synchronized capture of all 10 bands for pixel aligned imagery
  • Own your data and choose whichever platform is best for you. 
  • Has five bands - blue, green, red, red edge, and near-infrared - were optimal for sensing crop health. 
  • With the sensors that was built, you can rely it on. Wherever you are in the field - predictable, tough and reliable - you can gather the data you need when you need it. 

With the optimized GSD (resolution);  the new DLS 2 light sensor; RedEdge-MX is one of the most flexible solutions on the market.  An advanced sensor means that you can count on getting high quality, accurate data when you need it. 

  • Features RedEdge-MX Blue, a new version of RedEdge-MX that includes an additional group of filters
  • Synchronized capture of all 10 bands
  • Works with the drone and software you already have

Micasense Altum-PT - Thermal Multispectral and Highest Resolution Imagery
Redefining agricultural drone sensing

The Micasense Altum-PT is the latest sensor from Micasense and a first of its kind with fully calibrated multispectral and thermal imager. A revolutionary all-in-one solution for unparalleled sensing in a compact package. Ready to integrate with DJI SkyPort compatible drones.

  • Integrates a radiometric thermal camera with five discrete spectral bands.
  • An ultra-high resolution 12 MP panchromatic imager allows user to extract data at the plant-level.
  • A whole new thermal imager that has twice the ground resolution of the last Altum sensor.
  • Schedule the timing, frequency, and duration of water irrigation managing and also determine water usage for any project. 
  • Simultaneously capture all necessary bands in real time! More Power! More Data! More Control than ever before!

Micasense Altum-PT provides multiple options for integration - which includes the new, professional CFexpress removable storage, which captures 2 per second, w/ speedy turnaround time between flights (by changing cards), and super-intelligent fast card reader to increase upload speeds and decrease time between data management.

  • Rugged design with no moving parts.
  • Fly higher without sacrificing resolution ~ 1.2 cm (0.47in) pan-sharpened ground resolution at 60m (200ft)
  • It captures faster rate for faster flight speeds. 
  • In a single flight, it captures data on plant health, phenotype and water stress/irrigation, fruit yield est., and more!

Simultaneously capture sensationally high resolutions of 3 spectral imagery; multispectral, thermal, and panchromatic data. These images are pixel-aligned outputs using the all new camera sensor from Micasense, the Altum_PT. Instead of tirelessly switching between the bands and going through the data, one-by-one, take control of your yield/crops/data and reduce your post-processing time.

What is multispectral imaging?

My camera will not power on, what should I do?

What are the recommendation for max flight speed?

How can I preview thermal images in my computer?

Can Micasense sensor be used over water?

My RedEdge will not recognize the SD card,what should I do?

Can I go back to previous firmware? Since the camera in no longer working after updating the firmware.

I can’t connect to my sensor’s WiFi

My Thermal degrees after processing seem wrong. How can I fix this?

I looked around other online stores, but chose UAVPrime. Glad I did. They had me flying by the end of the week!
