MicaSense Altum-PT

Seamlessly integrates a 12 MP high-resolution panchromatic sensor, a new thermal sensor that provides twice the ground resolution of the previous Altum, and five discrete spectral bands.

Its high-resolution makes it the perfect sensor for machine learning plant-level applications such as early-stage crop counting. It also features a global shutter for distortion-free results, open APIs, and a new storage device allowing up to 2 captures/second.



5 bands & composite RGB

Thanks to the panchromatic band, Altum-PT enables high-resolution RGB, multispectral, and thermal imagery for machine learning applications such as plant counting and advanced vegetation research applications.


Altum-PT features a high resolution 12.4 MP panchromatic sensor, which allows for “pan-sharpening” of the multispectral imagery, increasing the spatial resolution of the multispectral data: 1.25 cm per pixel / 0.47 in per pixel pan-sharpened ground resolution when flying at 60 m / 200 ft

Global shutter

The Altum-PT multispectral camera features a global shutter for distortion-free image captures.
