(RE)DEFINING AGRICULTURAL DRONE SENSING
Altum

SENSOR MODEL:
ALTUM
LIGHT SENSOR MODEL:
DLS 2

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.

CRP Calibrated Reflectance Panel included in kit.

DLS 2 Comes with DLS 2, our next generation light sensor. With cutting-edge technology for irradiance and sun angle measurements, it provides more accurate, reliable data, substantially improves radiometric accuracy, and greatly reduces post-processing time.

TWICE THE RESOLUTION OF OTHER SENSORS

Providing a comprehensive view into crop health


  • Phenotyping
  • Crop Health Mapping
  • Water Management
  • Leak Scouting
  • Fertilizer Management
  • Disease Identification
  • Plant Classification
  • Species Differentiation
  • Plant Counting
  • Weed Detection
  • Advanced Crop Scouting
  • Terrain Modeling 
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

KEY FEATURES

CALIBRATED THERMAL SENSOR
Capture aligned multispectral and thermal imagery in one flight using only one sensor.

HI-RES MULTISPECTRAL
Improved resolution means more accurate digital surface models, easier stitching at lower altitudes, and better plant classification and plant counting.

HI-RES RGB
Five high-resolution lenses mean you get detailed plant health imagery (5.2 cm GSD) and detailed Digital Surface Models all from 400 ft.

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.
