Globally proven, locally perfect

The technology the agricultural industry has come to depend on is now more durable and accurate than ever before. There is no question agricultural companies, service providers and academics in the industry need reliable, accurate, precision perfect and, most importantly, meaningful data. The MicaSense RedEdge-MX provides this and more.

Secure the industry’s best

The RedEdge-MX’s low weight, low power requirement and ability to capture RGB and narrowband spectral bands collectively means you can gather the data you need in fewer flights.
If you operate multiple UAVs, it is likely the RedEdge-MX can quickly and professionally integrate with them.
RedEdge-MX has five bands—blue, green, red, red edge, and near-infrared—the perfect combination for optimal sensing of crop health.

RedEdge-MX sensors are field ready. Predictable, tough, and reliable— you can gather the data you need when you need it.
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.
Fly a 100-acre field (at 400 ft AGL, 70% overlap) with RedEdge-MX in 27 minutes

The RedEdge-MX is a truly professional multispectral sensor kit that is fundamentally changing the way agricultural crop and water management is undertaken.

Changing the way agricultural organisations are managing their crop health and vigour as well as monitoring water quality, the RedEdge-MX is globally field-proven and simple to operate. Efficient, fast and accurate, a single pass can secure more information than days, indeed weeks, of manual searching and testing. With a five narrow spectral band, it can generate plant health indexes and RGB (colour) images from one flight including Chlorophyll Map, NDVI Layer, Digital Surface Model and RGB Image. Designed for easy and flexible integration, it is calibrated for precise, repeatable measurements and can operate in temperatures up to 50℃.
