MicaSense Altum-PT — The Most Accurate Results at Ultra-High Resolutions

The Altum-PT is an optimized 3-in-1 solution for advanced remote sensing and agricultural research. Seamlessly integrates a 12 MP high-resolution panchromatic sensor, which provides twice the ground resolution of the previous Altum, and five discrete spectral bands. Its high-resolution makes it the perfect sensor for machine learning plant-level applications such as early-stage crop counting. It also features a global shutter for distortion-free results, open APIs, and a new storage device allowing up to 2 captures/second.

Accurate Results at Leaf-Level Resolutions

Altum-PT features a high resolution 12.4 MP panchromatic sensor, which allows for “pan-sharpening” of the multispectral imagery, increasing the spatial resolution of the multispectral data - 0.47 in. per pixel pan-sharpened ground resolution when flying at 200 ft.

Thermal Sensor

The built-in 320 x 256 FLIR Boson® thermal sensor enables accurate thermal maps at a GSD of 6.7 in. from 200 ft. flight altitude.

Five Multispectral Bands

  • Blue (475 nm center, 32 nm bandwidth)
  • Green (560 nm center, 27 nm bandwidth)
  • Red (668 nm center, 14 nm bandwidth)
  • Red Edge (717 nm center, 12 nm bandwidth)
  • Near-IR (842 nm center, 57 nm bandwidth)


  • 5 Multispectral bands + Panchromatic + Thermal
  • GSD down to 1.2 cm (0.47 in) per pixel at 60 m (200 ft) AGL

Fast Capture Rate

Altum-PT leverages CFexpress, a 2 TB removable storage that enables up to two captures per second, immediate turnaround time between flights by swapping cards, and fast card-to-computer upload speeds for more efficient data management.

Increase Data Accuracy and Repeatability - Calibrated Multispectral Imagery

Each Altum-PT camera kit comes with a Reflectance Panel for on-the-ground calibration as well as a DLS2 light sensor for irradiance and sun angle measurements. These radiometric calibration tools account for different weather and light conditions, providing more accurate, reliable data that enable time series analysis and comparability of outputs over time.

Powerful AI Capabilities

Thanks to the panchromatic band, Altum-PT enables high-resolution RGB, multispectral, and thermal imagery for machine learning applications such as plant counting and advanced vegetation research applications.

Synchronized Thermal and Multispectral Capture

The simultaneous capture of multispectral, thermal, and panchromatic bands eliminates the need for data alignment in post-processing and enables high-resolution outputs such as RGB color, NDVI, NDRE, CIR.

User-Driven Design - Made in the USA

MicaSense products are designed with customer feedback. The Altum-PT features twice the spatial resolution and a faster capture rate than previous Altum models. All MicaSense series sensors are designed, manufactured and engineered in the USA.

MicaSense Altum-PT —  Designed Specifically for UAV and Vegetation Mapping

Pressure Issues and Clog Detection in Irrigation Systems

Altum-PT’s thermal imagery can help identify clogs and irrigation leaks through the water cooling effects or lack thereof on the vegetation and ground. Areas with excessive irrigation will appear noticeably cooler than the rest of the field. Areas with no irrigation will show higher temperatures than the rest of the field.

Irrigation Scheduling

Determining irrigation time, frequency, and duration is a critical factor in production agriculture since it directly impacts the health of crops. Altum-PT thermal imagery provides powerful insights into water management, helping irrigation managers determine the correct watering and identify leaks or clogs in the irrigation system by the difference in crop canopy and soil temperature.

Disease, Pest and Nutrient Deficiency Detection

With the high-resolution multispectral imagery from Altum-PT, users have a better chance to identify problems affecting the physiology of the plant canopy. Diseases, insects, and nutrient issues often cause physiological damage before symptoms are visible in RGB. Using the different multispectral indices and composites of the pan-sharpened data, these issues can be detected sooner.

Plant Phenotyping

Manually measuring plant characteristics is time-consuming. Altum-PT captures more data in less time, allowing researchers to more easily understand how different traits react to different growing conditions.

Fruit Yield Estimations

Popular fruit yield estimation methods like manual fruit count or time series analysis are time-consuming and expensive. Altum-PT offers a combination of high-resolution RGB, multispectral, and thermal imagery, enabling more precise yield predictions by allowing algorithm-based fruit counts and temperature analysis.

Water Stress Prediction

Canopy temperature is a valuable indicator of plant stress. Altum-PT thermal imager allows farmers to periodically evaluate plant physiological status and detect subtle changes in canopy temperature that could be an indicator of water stress
