MicaSense Altum-PT

RGB, Multispectral and Thermal Camera

The Altum-PT is the best-in-class multispectral camera with synchronized thermal images applicable for production agriculture, phenotyping, and environmental monitoring. It captures synchronized multispectral, thermal, and panchromatic data for pixel-aligned outputs at incredibly high resolutions for advanced vegetation research applications. These comprise plant health monitoring from early emergence and on, with thermal for water stress and irrigation system monitoring as well.
