MicaSense Altum: A 3-in-1 solution for unparalleled sensing in a compact package

The ultimate solution for accuracy, flexibility, and power. Altum captures synchronized thermal, multispectral, and high-resolution visible imagery in a single flight, producing aligned outputs for advanced analytics. An integrated radiometric thermal camera and five high-resolution narrow bands means that advanced applications are simpler and easier to execute. Capture data on plant health, phenotype, and water stress in one flight.

Integration is simple with embedded mounting points and multiple interface options. The Altum is also compatible with the DJI PSDK, allowing for full integration with compatible DJI drones (such as the Matrice 200 series).

The Altum produces standard 16 bit Tiff files that can be used in multiple processing softwares, giving you the freedom to choose a processing and analytics platform - or create your own. Plus, Altum comes with the brand-new DLS 2 light sensor, which means you can trust that your data is highly calibrated and can be compared across time.
