The MicaSense RedEdge-MX is a rugged, built-to-last, professional multispectral sensor for agricultural and vegetation management drone mapping. RedEdge-MX captures five spectral bands, and is one of the most flexible solutions on the market. With optimized GSD (resolution); the new DLS 2 light sensor; the ability to generate plant health indexes and RGB (color) images from one flight. An advanced sensor means that you can count on getting high quality, accurate data when you need it.
Five narrow spectral bands captured during flight.
High image resolution; 8 cm/pixel at 400 ft. (120 m).
Single SD card stores all images with geotags.
Standalone operation, with optional external trigger and data from host aircraft.
Web-based configuration page accessed from any Wi-Fi–capable device.
Embedded mounting points for easier integration.
Global shutter imagers - doesn't require a gimbal.
