RedEdge-MX™ simultaneously captures five discrete spectral bands, enabling the creation of tailored indices for customized applications. Global shutter design creates distortion-free images on every platform. A variety of interface options including stand-alone mode, serial, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi, give RedEdge integrators expanded flexibility. RedEdge's Downwelling Light Sensor (DLS2) enables measurement of ambient light conditions during flight for more accurate data in varying light conditions.

The Q4E Drone is the most suitable solution to acquire data with the Micasense RedEdge-MX camera.

MICASENSE REDEDGE-MX™ - Mission planning


Reduced weight, low power consumption and the ability to capture narrowband RGB spectral bands at the same time allow RedEdge-MX to collect the data needed with fewer flights. RedEdge-MX integrates quickly with different drone platforms.


With RedEdge-MX the data is in direct possession of the user. It was not limited to a particular processing platform. You can choose which platform is best according to your needs.


RedEdge-MX has five bands: blue, green, red, near-infrared and infrared, which research has proven to be optimal for detecting crop health. Simply show more than standard multispectral cameras. And with MicaSense Atlas, you can see different analytical levels in one easy-to-use interface and compare these results over time.


Predictable, durable and reliable results, so you can gather the data you need when you need it.

MICASENSE REDEDGE-MX™ - Calibrated Panel

  • Active panel size: 6" x 6"
  • Special coating provides highly lambertian properties and flat reflectance response across visible and near-infrared spectrum
  • Nominal reflectance is 60% - calibration data provided with panel in 1 nm increments from 400 nm to 850 nm
  • Panel is housed in a rugged case for protection in those dusty days in the field
