The Altum-PT is an optimized 3-in-1 solution for advanced remote sensing and agricultural research. Seamlessly integrates a 12 MP high-resolution panchromatic sensor, which provides twice the ground resolution of the previous Altum, and five discrete spectral bands. Its high-resolution makes it the perfect sensor for machine learning plant-level applications such as early-stage crop counting. It also features a global shutter for distortion-free results, open APIs, and a new storage device allowing up to 2 captures/second.
Accurate Results at Leaf-Level Resolutions
Altum-PT features a high resolution 12.4 MP panchromatic sensor, which allows for “pan-sharpening” of the multispectral imagery, increasing the spatial resolution of the multispectral data - 0.47 in. per pixel pan-sharpened ground resolution when flying at 200 ft.
The built-in 320 x 256 FLIR Boson® thermal sensor enables accurate thermal maps at a GSD of 6.7 in. from 200 ft. flight altitude.
Five Multispectral Bands
- Blue (475 nm center, 32 nm bandwidth)
- Green (560 nm center, 27 nm bandwidth)
- Red (668 nm center, 14 nm bandwidth)
- Red Edge (717 nm center, 12 nm bandwidth)
- Near-IR (842 nm center, 57 nm bandwidth)
Fast Capture Rate
Altum-PT leverages CFexpress, a 2 TB removable storage that enables up to two captures per second, immediate turnaround time between flights by swapping cards, and fast card-to-computer upload speeds for more efficient data management.
Increase Data Accuracy and Repeatability - Calibrated Multispectral Imagery
Each Altum-PT camera kit comes with a Reflectance Panel for on-the-ground calibration as well as a DLS2 light sensor for irradiance and sun angle measurements. These radiometric calibration tools account for different weather and light conditions, providing more accurate, reliable data that enable time series analysis and comparability of outputs over time.
Powerful AI Capabilities
Thanks to the panchromatic band, Altum-PT enables high-resolution RGB, multispectral, and thermal imagery for machine learning applications such as plant counting and advanced vegetation research applications.
Synchronized Thermal and Multispectral Capture
The simultaneous capture of multispectral, thermal, and panchromatic bands eliminates the need for data alignment in post-processing and enables high-resolution outputs such as RGB color, NDVI, NDRE, CIR.
User-Driven Design - Made in the USA
MicaSense products are designed with customer feedback. The Altum-PT features twice the spatial resolution and a faster capture rate than previous Altum models. All MicaSense series sensors are designed, manufactured and engineered in the USA.
