Altum-PT

The most accurate results at ultra-high resolutions

The Altum-PT is an optimized 3-in-1 solution for advanced remote sensing and agricultural research. This solution seamlessly integrates an ultra-high-resolution, 12 MP panchromatic imager, a built-in 320 x 256 radiometric thermal imager, and five discrete spectral bands to obtain synchronized outputs such as RGB color, crop vigor, heat maps, and high-resolution panchromatic in just one flight. Higher resolution also means more analytical capabilities and applications: discern issues at the plant level, even in the early growth stages, including early-stage stand counting. Altum-PT also features a global shutter for distortion-free results on any platform, open APIs and standard data formats for compatibility with multiple processing platforms, and a new professional removable storage standard in CFexpress, for two captures per second and the fastest turnaround time between flights.

The ultimate solution for high-res RGB and multispectral data

The RedEdge-P is the rugged, high-quality, powerful multispectral sensor you’ve come to trust, now with a high-resolution panchromatic band for pan-sharpened output resolutions of 2cm (at 60m) – twice the ground resolution of the industry-standard RedEdge-MX. It is a single camera solution that captures calibrated high-resolution multispectral and RGB imagery, with an optimized FOV and capture rate for efficient flights. This solution seamlessly integrates a high-resolution all-color imager with synchronized multispectral imagers to enable pixel-aligned outputs at previously unattainable resolutions while maintaining the efficiency and reliability of the RedEdge legacy. Raw data from RedEdge-P is open for processing using the standard household softwares in the industry.
