MicaSense Altum-PT

RGB, Multispectral and Thermal Camera

The Altum-PT is the best-in-class multispectral sensor optimized for missions that require ultra-high resolution and on-the-spot decision making. It captures synchronized multispectral, thermal, and panchromatic data for pixel-aligned outputs at incredibly high resolutions for resource management and environmental monitoring.
