The MicaSense RedEdge™ is an advanced, lightweight, multispectral camera optimized for use in small unmanned aircraft systems. RedEdge™ provides accurate multi-band data for agricultural remote sensing applications.
RedEdge™ is much more than just a camera, sharing more design features with Earth imaging satellites than it does with standard consumer cameras. Industrial imaging sensors provide high dynamic range in varying lighting conditions while removing artifacts commonly seen in drone video and imagery. Coupled with MicaSense Data Services, RedEdge™ provides a complete imaging, processing, and analysis system ready for integration with any platform.
Need a closer look? Unplug your RedEdge™ and go handheld. An integrated shutter button lets you take close-ups of areas of interest, and with the optional GPS module, maintain geo-tagging and timestamping of all of your multispectral images.
Simultaneous capture of five discrete spectral bands
Narrowband optical filters provide full imager resolution for each band
Fast capture rate enables faster flight speeds and lower flight altitudes
Global shutter design for distortion-free results on every platform
Single SD card stores all images with geotags
Calibrated for precise, repeatable measurements
Rugged design with no moving parts
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 connectivity with host aircraft for full configuration,
status, and control of the camera

Secure - your data is encrypted during upload and storage.
Accurate - we do the heavy lifting to provide you reliable data. Our processing workflows
include band-to-band registration and implementation of camera calibration parameters
to ensure accurate results.
A complete solution - your processed data is presented as ortho-rectified map layers,
vegetation index layers (NDVI, GNDVI, GRVI, etc.), and analytics information maps.
Easy to navigate - our intuitive user interface allows you to quickly define field boundaries,
manage data layers and overlays, and securely share your data.
Flexible - our data platform includes an API for access by developers and customized
