A powerful device at a highly competitive price

The RedEdge-M has a more compact design with built-to-last materials to make it a rugged agricultural tool. But besides the improved design, the actual performance is even better improved

There’s no need to compromise, MicaSense delivers the data you need.

    1. Chlorophyll Map

    The red edge spectral band is the star here, working together with the other 4 bands to give you early and accurate insight of not only plant vigor but also the actual plant health.

  • null

    2. NDVI Layer

    This commonly known index compares the reflectance of the red band with that of the near-infrared band. However, this index alone provides limited information.

    3. Digital Surface Model

    A DSM is a very useful tool in any agronomist’s arsenal, it evaluates the waterflow and surface properties. Creating a chance to better allocate your resources, prematurely and more cost-effectively.

    4. RGB Image

    RedEdge-M features global shutters for distortion-free images. Generating RGB-images by combining the red, green an blue bands together forms a detailed 3D layer of the area.

    RedEdge-M has five bands—blue, green, red, red edge, and near-infrared—that our research showed were optimal for sensing crop health. It simply shows you more. And with MicaSense Atlas software you can see many different analytical layers in one easy to use interface, and compare these outputs across time to discover trends.

    We know you need tools you can rely on. That’s why we built the sensors we wanted in the field—predictable, tough, and reliable—so you can access the data you need when you need it.


Plug & Play

RedEdge-M is action-ready, integrating seamlessly no matter the platform. Easy as 1 2 3


Plan & Fly

With our drone-mission software, you can easily program the most efficient flight route in your drone to collect the data you need.

Customize your RedEdge-M

Some projects or specialized applications require different filters than the stock options.

Or maybe you need even more spectral resolution than just five bands.
