At FSF we have two MicaSense systems - the Altum and the RedEdge-M. Both are multispectral cameras, and are fully intergrated on our UAV systems.
Synchronized capture of multispectral, thermal, and highresolution imagery. Calibrated thermal and multispectral outputs. High resolution multispectral images. Integrated GPS, with downwelling light sensor (DLS 2).
Blue 475 nm, Green 560 nm, Red 668 nm, Red edge 717 nm, Near infrared 840 nm, and Thermal 11 µm.
RedEdge-M has five bands-blue, green, red, red edge, and near-infrared. It is provided with a downwelling light sensor (DLS).

The MicaSense unit and DLS will be supplied fully integrated with a UAV system. This will ensure that each image is accurately time and geostamped for prostprocessing.
These will be supplied with either:
