MicaSense Altum

The MicaSense Altum combines a radiometric thermal camera with five high-resolution narrow bands, producing high-resolution multispectral and advanced thermal imagery in one flight for advanced analytics.

Synchronized imagery

The synchronized multispectral and thermal sensors are particularly useful for water management, hot-spot detection and environmental research. 

Depending on the settings, the Altum also offers a larger coverage or higher accuracy than the MicaSense RedEdge-MX.
