MicaSense Altum Synchronized Thermal & Multispectral Sensor

The MicaSense Altum-PT has an optimized 3-in-1 solution for advanced remote sensing and agricultural research and is NDAA complianr.
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.


Altum-PT Key Features


New professional removable storage standard in CFexpress, enabling over two captures per second, immediate turnaround time between flights by swapping cards, and super-fast card-to-computer upload speeds for more efficient data management.



Altum-PT features an ultra-high resolution panchromatic sensor which allows for “pan-sharpening” the multispectral imagery, ultimately increasing the spatial resolution of the multispectral data: 1.2 cm (0.47in) pan-sharpened ground resolution when flying at 60m (200ft).



Altum-PT features a built-in 320 x 256 FLIR Boson® that enables thermal maps at twice the ground resolution of Altum - 17cm from 60m flight altitude.

Why Choose the MiCaSense Altum-PT

Increase Data Accuracy and Repeatability

MicaSense Altum PT calibrated imagery

Calibrated Multispectral Imagery

Each Altum-PT camera kit comes with a Reflectance Panel for on-the-ground calibration as well as a DLS2 light sensor for irradiance and sun angle measurements. These radiometric calibration tools account for different weather and light conditions, providing more accurate, reliable data that enable time series analysis and comparability of outputs over time.

Powerful AI Capabilities

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.

Open Interface for Easy Integration

The Altum-PT SkyPort ensures perfect compatibility with DJI’s M300 RTK drones. The camera also features an open API interface for easy integration with many popular drone and software platforms.

The MicaSense Altum PT Offers Synchronized Thermal and Multispectral Capture

The simultaneous capture of multispectral, thermal, and panchromatic bands eliminates the need for data alignment in post-processing and enables high-resolution outputs such as RGB color, NDVI, NDRE, CIR.

User-driven Design

Our products are designed upon customer feedback. The Altum-PT features twice the spatial resolution of previous Altum models, a faster capture rate and RTK support for DJI M300 anddM350 drones.

NDAA Compliant

All MicaSense series sensors are NDAA compliant, designed, manufactured, and engineered in the USA.

Use cases and applications

Designed Specifically for UAV and Vegetation Mapping

Pressure Issues and Clogs Detection in Irrigation Systems

Altum-PT’s thermal imagery can help identify clogs and irrigation leaks through the water cooling effects or lack thereof on the vegetation and ground. Areas with excessive irrigation will appear noticeably cooler than the rest of the field. Areas with no irrigation will show higher temperatures than the rest of the field.

Irrigation Scheduling

Determining irrigation time, frequency, and duration is a critical factor in production agriculture since it directly impacts the health of crops. Altum-PT thermal imagery provides powerful insights into water management, helping irrigation managers determine the correct watering and identify leaks or clogs in the irrigation system by the difference in crop canopy and soil temperature.

Disease, Pest and Nutrient Deficiency Detection

With the high-resolution multispectral imagery from Altum-PT, users have a better chance to identify problems affecting the physiology of the plant canopy. Diseases, insects, and nutrient issues often cause physiological damage before symptoms are visible in RGB. Using the different multispectral indices and composites of the pan-sharpened data, these issues can be detected sooner

Plant Phenotyping

Manually measuring plant characteristics is time-consuming. Altum-PT captures more data in less time, allowing researchers to more easily understand how different traits react to different growing conditions.

Fruit Yield Estimations

Popular fruit yield estimation methods like manual fruit count or time series analysis are time-consuming and expensive. Altum-PT offers a combination of high-resolution RGB, multispectral, and thermal imagery, enabling more precise yield predictions by allowing algorithm-based fruit counts and temperature analysis.

Water Stress Prediction

Canopy temperature is a valuable indicator of plant stress. Altum-PT thermal imager allows farmers to periodically evaluate plant physiological status and detect subtle changes in canopy temperature that could be an indicator of water stress.

Accessories included

Radiometric Calibration

DLS2 Light Sensor

DLS2 Light Sensor

The Downwelling Light Sensor (DLS2) is an advanced incident light sensor. It measures the ambient light and sun angle for each of the five multispectral bands of the camera. This information can then be used by specialized processing tools to correct global lighting changes in the middle of a flight, such as those that can happen due to clouds covering the sun.

DLS2 Light Sensor

CRP2 Reflectance Panel

The Calibrated Reflectance Panel (CRP2) is a compact on the ground radiometric calibration tool. The panel has pre-measured reflectance values across the visible and near-infrared light spectrum and therefore acts as a “control”. Taking a picture of the calibration panel allows you to assign the known reflectance values and adjust your dataset accordingly during post-processing. As a best practice, CRP images should be captured before and after each flight to provide an accurate representation of light conditions during the flight.
