The rugged, built-to-last, professional multispectral sensor for agricultural drone mapping. The Micasense RedEdge MX is now ready to integrate with DJI SkyPort enabled drones for $11,100.
The new Micasense RedEdge MX captures not just the spectral bands required for basic crop health indexes, but also those that generate analytics that are anything but basic. With its low weight, low power requirement, and multiple integration options, the RedEdge MX is one of the most flexible solutions on the market — now in a smaller size and at a lower cost.
Flight time is important. With the Micasense RedEdge-MX, you can fly a 160-acre field (at 400 ft AGL, 70% overlap) in 27 minutes! Choose between various data processing platforms to analyse the raw data collected by the Micasense RedEdge-MX.
The MicaSense RedEdge MX is an advanced, lightweight, multispectral camera optimized for use in small unmanned aircraft systems, and available for use on manned aircraft as well. RedEdge™ provides accurate multi-band data for agricultural remote sensing applications.

Start flying quickly and enjoy reliable flight with the DJI Matrice 100 – a true flying workhorse. Whatever application, this is a stable yet powerful platform that allows concepts to turn into reality. This quadcopter has all of DJI’s easy-to-fly technologies and includes the flight controller, GPS and DJI’s Lightbridge system. This system automatically manages the most complex tasks required for flight – the DJI Matrice 100 is the quadcopter for any industrial, agricultural and aerial photography solution. Configure this flying drone to suit almost any application.
Connect and fly with a range of DJI or third party devices and transmit data to the ground in real time. The Matrice 100 has dual parallel CAN ports for connecting DJI devices including the Guidance sensor system and dual parallel UART ports for connecting third party components. Now it is easy to mount the necessary equipment and put it into the sky.
This ready to fly Matrice 100 has an additional battery compartment to achieve up to 40 minutes of flight time. This gives greater power to both the platform and any additional devices or accessories.
The Matrice 100 is flexible enough to match flight needs, simply adjust the angle by 3 degrees on each of the 4 arms to increase flight performance.
To reduce vibrations and bring unmatched reliability, the Matrice 100 is made of strong yet lightweight carbon fibre. Each of the arms contains DJI’s new soft vibration absorbing material that virtually eliminates feedback from the 4 powerful motors. Confidently know that this keeps critical components stable and enabling data collection with unprecedented accuracy.
Innovative landing pads or “feet” are installed at the base of each arm to protect the Matrice 100 when landing. These pads also eliminate the chance of the platform unintentionally lifting off of the ground. These are easy and quick to remove for replacement or upgrades.
Take control of the platform with the long-range remote controller included with your Matrice 100. With an operating distance of around 2km, with fully adjustable controls and outputs to connect to mobile device. This is the perfect tool to command the system in the air.
Enhanced GPS with a folding antenna helps to track the Matrice 100’s position in real time enabling faster, more accurate position holding and flight planning.
With the auto take off and land function, simply customise the route to fly and let the drone do what it does best – fly and collect the required data!
An upgraded version of the respected DJI E800 electric propulsion system powers the Matrice 100 and keeps it in flight. Four brushless motors and four electronic speed controllers are integrated into the platform. This flexibility allows the system to have increased strength and payload.
