Atmos UAV expands payload options with addition of MicaSense sensor


Atmos UAV has continued to expand its payload options with the addition of the new MicaSense sensor.

The new sensor, named Altum, has been designed to integrate a radiometric thermal camera with five high-resolution narrow bands, producing thermal, multispectral and high-resolution imagery in one flight for advanced analytics.

Marlyn, the fixed-wing VTOL surveying platform developed by Atmos UAV, is the only drone in its class capable of carrying this new high-end sensor.

With this integration, the Atmos team said it wanted to offer professionals a tool that maximizes their surveying capacity in numerous applications.

Joost Bouman, COO at Atmos UAV, commented: “When Altum was announced by MicaSense we all realized that this is really a big step in remote sensing, so we are really excited with the new integration.

Adding: “Thanks to Marlyn’s flexible design we were able to finish the integration without compromise, and we are now looking forward to receiving the results from our first Altum customers.”
