Micasense Altum – the latest sensor from Micasense has set a new benchmark in agricultural drone technology. Now you can simultaneously capture thermal imagery as well as high resolution multispectral data. The resolution of the RedEdge M at 80m AGL set an industry standard, you can now fly higher with the Altum and get the same resolution. This means you have a bigger “swath” or effectively less overlap and more area covered per flight. Five high-resolution lenses mean you get detailed plant health imagery (4 cm GSD) and detailed Digital Surface Models all from 120m.
Altum integrates a radiometric thermal camera with five high-resolution narrow bands, producing advanced thermal, multispectral and high-resolution imagery all in one flight for advanced analytics.
A plug and play integration right out of the box, Altum is available with the DJI SkyPort, enabling seamless integration with the DJI Matrice 200 series professional drones. The price for the Micasense Altum with Skyport is $23,000 inc GST.
As with the Micasense Rededge M, the Altum includes MicaSense’s five-band configuration of multispectral bands. These bands are: red, green, blue, near-infrared and red-edge and also includes an integrated FLIR thermal sensor. This provides temperature measurement for every pixel of data collected for crop health optimization. You can process data from the Micasense Altum with industry standard software like Agisoft, Pix4D or Solvi to generate an aligned, radiometrically and calibrated six band geotiff.
