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.

CALIBRATED THERMAL SENSOR
Capture aligned multispectral and thermal imagery in one flight using only one sensor.
Improved resolution means more accurate digital surface models, easier stitching at lower altitudes, and better plant classification and plant counting.
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.
