Altum comes with DLS 2, our next generation light sensor. With cutting-edge technology for irradiance and sun angle measurements, it provides more accurate, reliable data, substantially improves radiometric accuracy, and greatly reduces post-processing time.

And, because it also contains an integrated GPS, setup with any aircraft is streamlined.

Benefits Recap:

  • Capture aligned high-resolution, multispectral, and thermal imagery using only one sensor. Generate analytics for phenotyping, irrigation, and plant health from one data set.

  • Improved resolution means more accurate digital surface models, easier stitching at lower altitudes, and better plant classification and plant counting.

  • High-capacity USB storage means you can fly longer and cover more acreage. No more changing SD cards!

  • Fast capture rate enables faster flight speeds and lower flight altitudes.

  • Communication and triggering options allow for a customized integration; choose the configuration that best suits your project.

  • Standard 16 bit TIFF file ouputs give you full access to raw data so you can process it on the platform of your choosing.

  • DLS 2 features enhanced reflectance calibration, and combined GPS and DLS to simplify integration.
