Meet the Micasense

Altum-PT camera!

The most accurate results at leaf-level resolutions

A revolutionary new 3-in-1 solution for unparallelled sensing in a compact package. The ultimate solution for accuracy, flexibility, and power. Altum captures synchronized thermal, multispectral, and high resolution imagery in one flight, producing aligned outputs for advanced analytics. Capture data on plant health, phenotype, and water stress in a single flight. Fly longer with unlimited USB storage. Integration is simple with multiple interface options and embedded mounting points.

Key features of the Micasense Altum-PT camera

Increased storage

New professional removable storage standard in CFexpress, enabling over two captures per second, immediate turnaround time between flights by swapping cards, and super-fast card-to-computer upload speeds for more efficient data management.

Twice the spatial resolution of the previous altum

Altum-PT features an ultra-high resolution panchromatic sensor which allows for “pan-sharpening” the multispectral imagery, ultimately increasing the spatial resolution of the multispectral data: 1.2 cm (0.47in) pan-sharpened ground resolution when flying at 60m (200ft).

Upgraded thermal sensor

Five high-resolution lenses mean you get detailed plant health imagery (5.2 cm GSD) and detailed Digital Surface Models all from 400 ft.
