*PRICE ON REQUEST

A re-definition of agricultural drone sensing.

The Micasense Altum sensor has twice the resolution of any other sensor, therefore providing a comprehensive view of the health of your crops. The sensor integrates a radiometric thermal camera with five high-resolution narrows.

ALTUM Integrates a radiometric thermal camera with five high-resolution narrow bands, producing advanced thermal, multispectral, and high-resolution imagery in one flight for advanced analytics.

SYNCHRONIZED THERMAL AND MULTISPECTRAL IMAGERY

The MicaSense Altum captures six bands – red, green, blue, red edge, near-infrared and thermal. The capture of these bands happens at the same moment, making the data easier to align and use for analytics. Also, because there are six bands, data from Altum can be used to create anything from NDVI to digital surface models to thermal heat maps.

MICASENSE INCREASES DATA ACCURACY AND REPEATABILITY

The sensor has the benefits of forecasting and data precision. We have a focus on accuracy and repeatability in our data and analysis so that you can trust the data we help you gather.

WHAT THE SENSORS DO :

PHENOTYPING

Manually measuring plant characteristics is time-consuming. Altum captures more data in less time, allowing researchers understand how different breeds react to certain environments and modify desirable traits in order to improve yield.

CROP HEALTH MAPPING

Altum captures visible and invisible spectral bands, as well as thermal imagery. From the different bands, it is possible to generate indices to detect early signs of crop stress and compare over time. Thermal imagery also provides valuable insights into plant health, since sick plants decrease transpiration and that is reflected into slight temperature changes.

WATER MANAGEMENT

Altum thermal imagery can provide powerful insights into water management, helping identify overspray or missed areas by the difference in crop and soil temperature.

LEAK SCOUTING

Altum’s thermal imagery can help on the identification of irrigation leaks since water has a cooling effect on the vegetation. Areas with excessive irrigation will appear noticeable cooler than the rest of the field.

FERTILIZER MANAGEMENT

Altum  not only allows for easy identification of areas low in nutrients but also help monitor the effects of fertilizer applications throughout the season and determine if, when, and where a new application is needed.

DISEASE IDENTIFICATION

By collecting both multispectral and thermal imagery, Altum can identify diseases before symptoms are visible since the early signs of disease are first apparent in the red edge band and can result in small temperature changes.

PLANT CLASSIFICATION

The Altum sensors  capture high resolution images that specialized software and algorithms can use to classify plants in a given field by size, species, and canopy closure.

SPECIES DIFFERANTIATION

Some differences among species may not be visible to the naked eye. High-quality multispectral data allows for species differentiation by highlighting characteristics such as chlorophyll content, vigor, and leaf size.

PLANT COUNTING

High-resolution multispectral data can feed algorithms information for plant counting, saving farmers hours, and making yield predictions more accurate.

WEED DETECTION

Analytics developed with multispectral data can identify and highlight weeds, as weeds may have a different spectral signature than the planted crop.

ADVANCED CROP SCOUTING

High-quality multispectral imagery provides advanced field scouting capabilities. In one flight, it is possible to collect accurate and geotagged information of a problem, making easy to assess the situation and determine the appropriate intervention.

TERAIN MODELLING

One of the advantages of a calibrated multispectral sensor is the generation of aligned outputs, which can be used to create digital surface models (DSM). A DSM provides insights into water management, land uses and terrain elevation.
