    • Radiometric thermal and multispectral sensors and DLS 2 for accurate and reliable results
    • Multiple interface options, open API, and mounting points for simple integration
    • Standard TIFF file outputs. Choose your own processing and analytics platforms, or process yourself
    • High capacity USB 3.0 storage. Fly longer without switching storage devices
    • Synchronized thermal and multispectral capture enables advanced analytics
    • Rugged design with no moving parts
    • 5.2 CM per pixel GSD at 400 feet. Fly higher without sacrificing resolution
    • Faster capture rate for faster flight speeds
    • Capture data on plant health, phenotype, and water stress in a single flight


    DLS 2

    Altum 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.

    And, because it also contains an integrated GPS, setup with any aircraft is streamlined. 



    Benefits Recap


    • Capture aligned high-resolution, multispectral, and thermal imagery using only one sensor. Generate analytics for phenotyping, irrigation, and plant health from one data set.

    • Improved resolution means more accurate digital surface models, easier stitching at lower altitudes, and better plant classification and plant counting.

    • High-capacity USB storage means you can fly longer and cover more acreage. No more changing SD cards!

    • Fast capture rate enables faster flight speeds and lower flight altitudes.

    • Communication and triggering options allow for a customized integration; choose the configuration that best suits your project.

    • Standard 16 bit TIFF file ouputs give you full access to raw data so you can process it on the platform of your choosing.

    • DLS 2 features enhanced reflectance calibration, and combined GPS and DLS to simplify integration.
