RedEdge-P


The RedEdge-P is a single camera solution for synchronized capture of calibrated high-resolution multispectral and RGB imagery.

Product Details: RedEdge-P

The RedEdge-P is a single camera solution for synchronized capture of calibrated high-resolution multispectral and RGB imagery, with an optimized FOV and capture rate for efficient flights. It seamlessly integrates a high-resolution all-color imager with synchronized multispectral imagers to enable pan-sharpened RGB and multispectral outputs at 2cm GSD from 60m, unlocking extensive analysis capabilities.

The sensor kit comes with: The RedEdge-P sensor, lens cover, a new professional removable storage standard in CFexpress, CRP 2 (the latest version of our calibrated reflectance panel), DLS 2 light sensor with integrated GPS, cables, mounting screws, hard carrying case.

Key Features

INCREASED STORAGE
New professional removable storage standard in CFexpress, enabling over two captures per second and the immediate turnaround time between flights by simply swapping cards.

SYNCHRONIZED CAPTURE OF HIGH-RES RGB AND MULTISPECTRAL
Simultaneous capture of up to six bands, enabling multiple high-resolution outputs such as RGB, crop vigor indices (NDVI, NDRE, etc), and high resolution panchromatic.

TWICE THE SPATIAL RESOLUTION OF THE PREVIOUS REDEDGE
With a high-resolution panchromatic imager, RedEdge-P enables higher-resolution RGB and multispectral outputs – 2cm resolution when flying at 60m. Spot smaller problems or features sooner and make more reliable management decisions across a variety of use cases.

WORKS WITH WHAT YOU HAVE (DRONES, PROCESSING, FLIGHT PLANNING)
This solution is compatible with a wide range of aircraft, from large fixed wings to small multirotors. Flight planning and data processing can be done with industry-standard tools.

The industry standard multispectral sensor

Providing a comprehensive view into crop health

Plant Counting

Plant counting algorithms require high-resolution imagery. RedEdge-P combines a Panchromatic lens with 5-high-res multispectral lenses enabling high-res RGB and multispectral outputs, allowing plant count even at early growth stages.
Disease Identification

RedEdge-P captures a critical part of the light spectrum for studying plants (712–722 nm), called the red edge band. It is in this section of the spectrum that the first signs of stress start to show. Using analytics generated with the red edge band, it is possible to identify disease sooner and act faster to stop the spread.

 

Phenotyping

Manually measuring plant characteristics is time-consuming. RedEdge-P band combination enables high-resolution multispectral outputs, allowing the detection of variability at the leaf level.
Species differentiation

Some differences among species may not be visible to the naked eye. High-res multispectral data allows for species differentiation, weeds included, by highlighting characteristics such as chlorophyll content, vigor, and leaf size.

 

Plant health mapping

RedEdge-P’s high-resolution multispectral outputs allow the generation of indices and composites to see individual chlorophyll levels in the plants and compare over time.
Advanced Crop Scouting

High-res multispectral and RGB imagery provides advanced field scouting capabilities. In one flight, it is possible to collect accurate and geotagged information of a problem, making it easy to assess the situation and determine the appropriate intervention.

 

Fertilizer Management

RedEdge-P’s high-res and accurate outputs allow easy identification of areas low in nutrients and help monitor the effects of fertilizer applications throughout the season and determine if, when, and where a new application is needed.
High-res 3D point clouds

RedEdge-P’s 5.1-Megapixel panchromatic band provides over twice the ground resolution of the industry-standard RedEdge-MX, resulting in 3D point clouds with up to 4 times the point density.

The same narrow bands, at twice the resolution

This solution offers a seamless way to capture not just standard spectral bands but at a spatial resolution that takes it a step further. With a high-resolution panchromatic imager, RedEdge-P enables higher-resolution RGB and multispectral outputs – 2cm resolution when flying at 60m.
