At MicaSense, we believe in delivering more than pretty pictures.
We believe in providing scientific solutions that address real problems.
1 Chlorophyll Map: The red edge spectral band is the star here, working in conjunction with the other bands to provide a more accurate measure of not just plant vigor but plant health.
2 NDVI Layer: This commonly known index compares the reflectance of the red band with that of the near-infrared band. However, this index alone provides limited information.
3 Digital Surface Model: A DSM is an astonishingly advantageous tool in any agronomist's arsenal, primarily because of its use in evaluating surface properties and water flow.
4 RGB Image: RedEdge-MX features global shutters for distortion-free images, including narrowband red, green, and blue bands for RGB color images that when processed are aligned to all visible and non-visible bands and vegetation indices.

Sample Data

Raw GeoTIFF Data (1 capture)
Samples containing the unprocessed output files, as they are captured by the camera, one 16-bit RAW TIFF file per band (based on 12-bit data) (five images). This sample data was collected from 400 ft AGL with a resolution of 8.2 cm per pixel.
Complete Flight
This is data from an actual flight. It shows early growth of a cover crop (roughly 3" to 6" growth). The cover crop is thin, but emergence consistency (or lack thereof) is visible. It was flown with 80% overlap at 200 ft AGL, with a resolution of 4 cm per pixel. It can be stitched in Pix4D or other photogrammetry solutions.
This is a fully processed output in GeoTIFF format. This sample data was collected from 400 ft AGL with a resolution of 8.2 cm per pixel. Each layer of the GeoTIFF file is registered to all others at the pixel level. Note that these images may not open correctly in some image viewers. They are intended to be viewed using GIS software (ArcGIS, ArcMap, QGIS ...).
RedEdge-MX is action-ready, integrating seamlessly no matter the platform.
It has a compact design and is lightweight to work with as many drone models as possible.

It's simple to plan a successful mission.
The RedEdge-MX's low weight, low power requirement, and ability to capture RGB and narrowband spectral bands simultaneously means you can gather the data you need in fewer flights. Have multiple UAVs? RedEdge-MX quickly integrates with many different drone platforms.
With RedEdge-MX, you own your data. You're not limited to a particular processing platform. You can choose whichever platform is best for you, your customer, or your project.
RedEdge-MX has five bands-blue, green, red, red edge, and near-infrared-that our research showed were optimal for sensing crop health. It simply shows you more. And with MicaSense Atlas, you can see many different analytical layers in one easy to use interface, and compare these outputs across time.
We know you need tools you can rely on. That's why we built the sensors we wanted in the field-predictable, tough, and reliable-so you can gather the data you need when you need it.
RedEdge-MX is a reliable, accurate, high-precision sensor.
Fly a 100-acre field (at 400 ft AGL, 70% overlap) with RedEdge-MX in 27 minutes!
