MicaSense RedEdge-MX

The RedEdge-MX is a professional, rugged multispectral sensor for advanced aerial mapping applications like agriculture, forestry or environmental research.  

MicaSense RedEdge-MX multispectral drone camera

The industry standard multispectral sensor

The RedEdge-MX full-spectrum camera lets you capture distortion-free RGB, NDVI, and advanced vegetation index layers in a single flight. 

Together with high-precision PPK module, RedEdge-MX offers centimeter level accuracy.

* at 70% side overlap
* Horizontal absolute accuracy (RMS). Achievable with a WingtraOne GEN II and its built-in GNSS PPK module. This level of accuracy is achievable under optimal conditions, on hard surfaces, using a well-established base station or data from CORS network. A minimum of three ground points should be used as checkpoints to verify and prove the accuracy of the project.
