MicaSense Altum-PT

High resolution thermal, multispectral, and RGB

Altum-PT seamlessly integrates a 12 MP high-resolution panchromatic sensor, a new thermal sensor that provides twice the ground resolution of the previous Altum, and five discrete spectral bands.

Its high-resolution makes it the perfect sensor for machine learning plant-level applications such as early-stage crop counting. It also features a global shutter for distortion-free results, open APIs, and a new storage device allowing up to 2 captures/second.

Accurate results at leaf-level resolutions

Altum-PT features a high resolution 12.4 MP panchromatic sensor, which allows for “pan-sharpening” of the multispectral imagery, increasing the spatial resolution of the multispectral data: 1.25cm per pixel pan-sharpened ground resolution when flying at 60m.

Thermal sensor

The built-in 320 x 256 FLIR Boson® thermal sensor enables accurate thermal maps at a GSD of 17cm from 60m flight altitude.

5 Multispectral bands

 

  • Blue (475 nm centre, 32 nm bandwidth)
  • Green (560 nm centre, 27 nm bandwidth)
  • Red (668 nm centre, 14 nm bandwidth)
  • Red edge (717 nm centre, 12 nm bandwidth)
  • Near-IR (842 nm centre, 57 nm bandwidth)

Increase data accuracy and repeatability

Each Altum-PT camera kit comes with a Reflectance Panel for on-the-ground calibration as well as a DLS2 light sensor for irradiance and sun angle measurements. These radiometric calibration tools account for different weather and light conditions, providing more accurate, reliable data that enable time series analysis and comparability of outputs over time.

Powerful AI capabilities

Thanks to the panchromatic band, Altum-PT enables high-resolution RGB, multispectral, and thermal imagery for machine learning applications such as plant counting and advanced vegetation research applications.

Open interface for easy integration

The Altum-PT SkyPort ensures perfect compatibility with DJI’s M300 RTK drones. The camera also features an open API interface for easy integration with many popular drone and software platforms.

Synchronised thermal and multispectral capture

The simultaneous capture of multispectral, thermal, and panchromatic bands eliminates the need for data alignment in post-processing and enables high-resolution outputs such as RGB colour, NDVI, NDRE, CIR.
