RedEdge-MX The RedEdge-MX is a rugged, built-to-last, professional multispectral sensor, now with a metallic enclosure for extreme durability. It captures the spectral bands required for basic crop health indexes and additional bands needed for advanced analytics.
CRP Calibrated Reflectance Panel included in kit.
DLS 2 RedEdge-MX comes with DLS 2, our next generation light sensor. With cutting-edge technology for irradiance and sun angle measurements, it provides more accurate, reliable data, substantially improves radiometric accuracy, and greatly reduces post-processing time.
CALIBRATED NARROW BANDS
Five narrow high resolution (8 cm/pixel at 400 ft) spectral bands captured during one flight. Calibrated for precise, repeatable measurements.
RUGGED AND DURABLE
New aluminum body for better durability and performance in higher temperatures. Global shutter imagers – no gimbal required and no moving parts.
Compact size allows for integration with a wide variety of drones. Full access to raw data; outputs can be generated using a wide variety of processing and analysis platforms.

Chlorophyll Map: The red edge spectral band is the star here, working in conjunction with the other bands to provide a more accurate measure of not just plant vigor but plant health.
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.
Digital Surface Model:A DSM is an astonishingly advantageous tool in any agronomist’s arsenal, primarily because of its use in evaluating surface properties and water flow.
RGB Image: RedEdge-MX features global shutters for distortion-free images, including narrowband red, green, and blue bands for RGB color images that when processed are aligned to all visible and non-visible bands and vegetation indices.
The RedEdge-MX’s low weight, low power requirement, and ability to capture RGB and narrowband spectral bands simultaneously means you can gather the data you need in fewer flights. Have multiple UAVs? RedEdge-MX quickly integrates with many different drone platforms.
With RedEdge-MX, you own your data. You’re not limited to a particular processing platform. You can choose whichever platform is best for you, your customer, or your project.
RedEdge-MX 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, you can see many different analytical layers in one easy to use interface, and compare these outputs across time.
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 gather the data you need when you need it.
RedEdge-MX is a reliable, accurate, high-precision sensor.
