Sensors for Q200 Agri Series

Gimballed 5 Channel RedEdge Multipsectral

An agricultral revolution from Micasense.

The proven, reliable, 5 Channel Multispectral Camera is suitable for both our DATAhawk and Q200 range. 

Read the Micasense brochure here and find out for yourself.

NDVI, Gimballed, High Res, Rugged
Radiometric Thermal (Optris)

The Optris PI450 infrared camera that is capable of capturing and recording thermal imagery at full resolution. This sensor also comes with license-free analysis software with intuitive user interface allow you to analyse and export your data in various outputs including .ravi .jpg .tiff .avi .dat and .csv.

Using this technology allows the user to quickly identify the range of different heat signatures being given off at the chosen survey area. This is a particularly good choice for industrial applications like pipeline inspections where “hot spots” can be detected at an early stage.

Radiometric Thermal (TEAX)
Gimballed 6 Channel Multispectral (Tetracam)

The Mini-MCA system contains 4 or 6 factory-aligned multi-spectral cameras. Each camera contains a customer-specified narrow-band filter that is inserted between the lens and sensor. With each exposure, 4 or 6 separate bands of visible or near-infrared radiation move through each camera’s lens and filter to form a separate monochromatic image on the camera’s sensor.

The multi-spectral images captured during each exposure enables you to identify plant stress factors, soil types, fertilisers, or insecticides; differentiate plant species or recognise other plants, soils or chemicals.

Q200 Mining and Survey Sensors

High Res 24MP RGB, Prime Lens with Manual Option (Sony)

High resolution (24mp) camera with prime lens and auto or manual control.

Release a vast amount of valuable, accurate data with our flagship Sony A6000 and prime 16mm lens.

Combined with our industrial remote sensing workflows the Sony A6000 has a proven track record for high stability and precision accuracy.

Our systems allow both Auto and manual functions. In manual a professional operator will achieve much better ortho results.

Q200 Annual Inspection

Radiometric Thermal (Optris)

The Optris PI450 is a radiometric thermal camera suitable for drone installation and detailed recording of thermal information.  

This sensor also comes with license-free software to analyse data in various outputs including .ravi .jpg .tiff .avi .dat and .csv.

Using this technology allows the user to quickly identify the range of different heat signatures being given off at the chosen survey area.

This is a particularly good choice for industrial applications like pipeline inspections where “hot spots” can be detected at an early stage.
