Empire Drone Company Forms Strategic Partnership with MicaSense.

Fulton, NY: Empire Drone Company (EDC) today announced their new partnership with MicaSense, a USA based manufacturer of multispectral sensors for agriculture. This partnership further expands EDC's commitment to providing agriculture and environmental professionals with the some of the best UAS (drone) platforms, payloads, and software available.

MicaSense manufactures three multi-spectral sensors; RedEdge-MX, Dual RedEdge-MX, and Altum;

  • The RedEdge-MX is a rugged, built-to-last, professional multispectral sensor for agricultural drone mapping. Capturing both the spectral bands required for basic crop health indexes and additional bands to power further analytics, the RedEdge-MX is a multispectral powerhouse—with a compact size and low weight that work with a wide variety of unmanned aircraft systems.

  • The RedEdge-MX Dual Camera Imaging System is a synchronized 10 band solution for advanced remote sensing and agricultural research. This solution seamlessly integrates two five band cameras, the RedEdge-MX and the new RedEdge-MX Blue, capturing 10 band imagery in one flight. Compatible with DJI drones and industry standard software platforms (Pix4D, Agisoft) this 10 band solution ensures that flying with two cameras is just as easy as flying with one.

  • Altum captures synchronized thermal, multispectral, and high-resolution imagery in one flight, producing aligned outputs for advanced analytics. An integrated radiometric thermal camera and five high-resolution narrow bands means that advanced applications are simpler and easier to execute. Capture data on plant health, phenotype, and water stress in a single flight. Fly longer with unlimited USB storage. Integration is simple with multiple interface options and embedded mounting points.

All three sensors can be successful integrated with most fixed wing and multi-copter drones. MicaSense also provides special integration kits for the popular DJI Matrice Series of drones via an included Skyport adapter.

MicaSense sensors are available now through Empire Drone Company. For more information including pricing, brochures, and questions please contact Sean Falconer at sales@empiredroneco.com
