The RedEdge-MX Agriculture Camera

is a rugged, built-to-last, professional multispectral sensor, now with a metallic enclosure for extreme durability. This agriculture camera captures the spectral bands required for basic crop health indexes and additional bands needed for advanced analytics. RedEdge-MX is one of the most flexible solutions on the market, with optimized GSD (resolution), the new DLS 2 light sensor, a global shutter for distortion-free images, the ability to generate plant health indexes and RGB (color) images from one flight, and the freedom of platform-agnostic data.

All in a compact size and low weight that allow it to be used with a wide variety of unmanned aircraft systems.

Key Benefits:

  • New aluminum body for better durability and performance in higher temperatures.
  • Compact size allows for integration with a wide variety of drones.
  • Fast capture rate enables faster flight speeds and lower flight altitudes.
  • Wide voltage range to handle more integrations without extra power conversion.
  • Calibrated for precise, repeatable measurements.
  • Rugged design with no moving parts.
  • Full access to raw data; outputs can be generated using a wide variety of processing and analysis platforms.
