MicaSense RedEdge-M™
Multispectral Camera

A rugged, built-to-last, professional multispectral sensor. Captures five discrete spectral bands, and is one of the most flexible solutions on the market.

Accurate information for your fields starts with quality sensors. MicaSense offers professional multispectral cameras optimized for use in drones, with narrowband filters, calibrated outputs, and a size and weight that allows integration with all types of unmanned aircraft.

  • Narrowband optical filters provide full image resolution for each band

  • Single SD card stores all images with geotags

  • Standalone operation, with optional external trigger and data from host aircraft

  • Intuitive web-based interface accessed from any Wi-Fi–capable device

  • Option for Ethernet or serial communications with host aircraft for full configuration, status,
    and control of the camera

  • GigE Ethernet connectivity for faster transfer of data between camera and host aircraft
