Micasense RedEdge-P


Micasense RedEdge-P drone thermal camera, the smallest and most compact thermal camera designed for drones on the market today. Remote control and live video output + dedicated configuration app.


Incrase storage

New professional removable storage standard in CFexpress, enabling over two captures per second and the immediate turnaround time between flights by simply swapping cards.

Synchronized capture of high-res rgb and multispectral

Simultaneous capture of up to six bands, enabling multiple high-resolution outputs such as RGB, crop vigor indices (NDVI, NDRE, etc.), and high resolution panchromatic.

Twice the spatial resolution of the previous rededge

With a high-resolution panchromatic imager, RedEdge-P enables higher-resolution RGB and multispectral outputs-2cm resolution when flying at 60m. Spot smaller problems or features sooner and make more reliable management decisions across a variety of use cases.

Works with what you have (drones, processing, flight planning)

This solution is compatible with a wide range of aircraft, from large fixed wings to small multirotors. Flight planning and data processing can be done with industry-standard tools.

Rugged design

IP4X rated for dust and splash protection


RedEdge-P can provide powerful insights into water management. For example, color composites using the NIR band (like CIR) can help users identify overly damp areas. In addition, areas that are benefiting from excess irrigation will be highlighted.


Manually measuring plant characteristics is time-consuming. RedEdge-MX captures more data in less time, allowing researchers to understand how different breeds react to certain environments and modify desirable traits in order to improve yield.


Low chlorophyll content is often an early indicator of plant stress. RedEdge-P captures both visible and invisible spectral bands. From the different bands, it is possible to generate indices to see individual chlorophyll levels in the plants and compare over time.


RedEdge-P not only allows for easy identification of areas low in nutrients but also help monitor the effects of fertilizer applications throughout the season and determine if, when, and where a new application is needed.


RedEdge-P captures a critical part of the light spectrum for studying plants (712-722 nm), called the red edge band. It is in this section of the spectrum that the first signs of stress start to show. Using analytics generated with the red edge band, growers can identify disease sooner and act faster to stop the spread.


Some differences among species may not be visible to the naked eye. High-quality multispectral data allows for species differentiation by highlighting characteristics such as chlorophyll content, vigor, and leaf size.


High-quality multispectral imagery provides advanced field scouting capabilities. In one flight, it is possible to collect accurate and geotagged information of a problem, making it easy to assess the situation and determine the appropriate intervention.


Analytics developed with multispectral data can identify and highlight weeds, as weeds may have a different spectral signature than the planted crop.


Orthomosiac (3.26GB)
Fully processed orthomosaic captured in October 2021 in the Pacific Northwest over a pumpkin farm.
The pan-sharpened GSD of the flight is 2cm per pixel.
Note that the output format is GeoTiff and is intended to be viewed using GIS software (QGIS , ArcPro, ArcMap…).
