Meet Altum: The Power of Three, in a Compact Package
Integrating a radiometric thermal sensor from FLIR and five-high-resolution narrow bands (seen before on RedEdge-M) Altum offers a simplified solution for users looking to capture thermal, multispectral, and high-resolution RGB imagery. Synchronized image capture opens the door to advanced analytics for researchers and enterprise level growers. High capacity USB storage enables users to fly longer without switching out storage devices. And our new and advanced light sensor allows for better light calibration over time, with a streamlined processing workflow.
Similar RedEdge-M, Altum features standard communication protocols so that it can be integrated with a wide variety of drones on the market. In addition, Altum’s data outputs are also standard 16-bit TIFF files so that users can process Altum data with industry standard software like Agisoft and Pix4Dmapper, or access the raw data from Altum to process it themselves.
Introducing MicaSense Sensors for the DJI M200 Series
Through DJI SkyPort, we can provide seamless integration of Altum and RedEdge-M with DJI’s powerful line of enterprise drones. This gives our customers more options for a high-quality drone and sensor combination they can rely on to capture quality data every time — with virtually no set-up time. For this offering, RedEdge-M will have a different look and name, RedEdge-MX, but the technology behind it won’t change, providing users with the high-quality multispectral outputs they’ve come to depend on.
The DJI SkyPort integration for Altum and RedEdge-MX features plug-and-play integration right out of the box, including power, quick connect/disconnect, and enhanced light calibration with MicaSense DLS 2.
And There’s More…
Both Altum and RedEdge-MX will also include the DLS 2, the next generation of our Downwelling Light Sensor. This sensor allows for a more streamlined integration as it combines both the DLS and GPS into one product. In addition, through proprietary MicaSense technology, the DLS 2 will offer significantly better calibration for changing light conditions.
With a new sensor, additional integration options, and more precise data, we can help our customers go a step further towards capturing impactful information and re-defining the boundaries of agricultural drone mapping.
