The MicaSense RedEdge-MX camera found in the UX11 Ag is a multispectral camera that is commonly regarded as the best in its class. The resolution of the sensor allows you to distinguish and even count individual plants in row crops.
The Micasense sensor captures five spectral bands: red, blue, green, red edge, and near infrared. The red edge and NIR bands are known in academic literature to be a reliable proxy for plant health assessment.
Live display of NDVI, a bird’s eye view, and real time control over the camera and drone parameters allows the pilot to not only manage the flight, but to verify and ensure that high-quality data is being collected during the flight.
Everything works seamlessly and efficiently. Apart from the flight itself, the flight preparation and data export processes take less than 20 minutes combined.
Compared to a multirotor ag drone, the fixed wing UX11 Ag solution saves big on operational costs.
