MicaSense RedEdge 5-band Sensor

RedEdge sensor

The MicaSense RedEdge 5-band sensor was designed primarily for precision agriculture applications, where farmers can look for moisture and other stress on their fields, but also works well for vegetation mapping.  It captures narrow bands of blue (centered on 475 nm), green (560 nm), red (668 nm), near infrared (NIR, 840 nm), and red edge (717 nm), allowing for accurate detection of vegetation health and discernment of species based on their spectral signatures.
