RedEdge-MX Dual Camera Imaging System by MicaSense


Two five-band cameras, the RedEdge-MX and the new RedEdge-MX blue, this solution enables the most advanced remote sensing and vegetation research applications.

  • Synchronized capture of all 10 bands for pixel aligned imagery
  • Standard 12 bit TIFF file outputs with embedded metadata for full access to raw data
  • Combined Downwelling Light Sensor and GPS for streamlined integration, accurate ambient light calibration. Only one DLS required.
  • Radiometrically calibrated spectral imagers for precise, repeatable measurements
  • Global shutters on all 10 lenses for distortion-free results on every platform

DOUBLE THE SPECTRAL RESOLUTION.
HALF THE HASSLE.

Integrating two five-band cameras, the RedEdge-MX and the new RedEdge-MX blue, this solution enables the most advanced remote sensing and vegetation research applications.

THE NEW REDEDGE-MX BLUE SENSOR

The performance you rely on from RedEdge-MX with a new coastal blue band, a new green band, and three new bands in the red to red-edge region of the spectrum. Combined with the bands in RedEdge-MX, the 10 bands in the Dual Camera System enable direct comparison between satellite and drone data. Already have a RedEdge-M or RedEdge-MX? Buy the new RedEdge-MX blue kit and get double the spectral resolution.

FLY

Flying with two cameras is as easy as flying with one. This solution is compatible with a wide range of aircraft, from large fixed wings to small multirotors, and comes standard with an integration kit for DJI drones.

PROCESS

Because the two cameras are both versions of RedEdge-MX, flight planning and data processing can be done with industry-standard tools like Pix4D and Agisoft.

ANALYZE

Double the bands mean double the analytical capabilities. This solution captures synchronized, pixel-aligned imagery which allows the bands from both cameras to be used interchangeably for the creation of more indices.
