MicaSense has launched the next generation of its flagship multispectral drone sensor, RedEdge-P. Offering three times the capture speed and twice the spatial resolution of its predecessor, the RedEdge-MX, MicaSense’s new sensor packs in a higher resolution, panchromatic band to deliver a pan-sharpened output resolution of 2 cm when flying at 60 m.
Essentially, RedEdge-P can simultaneously capture up to six bands, enabling multiple high-resolution outputs such as RGB, crop vigor indexes (NDVI, NDRE, etc.), and high-resolution panchromatic. With such high-quality data, users can spot smaller problems or features sooner and make more reliable management decisions across a variety of use cases.
As MicaSense points out in its press release:
With RedEdge-P, agricultural professionals will benefit from a sensor that can enable effective plant counting and spectral analysis of small plants. Likewise, federal, state, and local government and commercial forestry…
