Quantum-Systems offers MicaSense Dual Camera System Payload!

Quantum-Systems offers the MicaSense “Dual Camera System” for the Trinity F90+ fixed-wing UAV

8th of April 2020: Gilching / Germany: As a manufacturer of advanced VTOL UAV systems for high-precision surveying tasks in the professional field it is also in our interest to offer our customers the best possible sensors in combination with our UAV systems. It is therefore our pleasure to offer customers the brand new Dual Camera System from MicaSense as a payload option for our Trinity F90+ UAV.

MicaSense Dual Camera System: Double the spectral resolution with half the hassle in one payload.

We successfully integrated the two five-band cameras, RedEdge-MX and the new RedEdge-MX Blue. This solution enables the most advanced remote sensing and vegetation research applications. The camera option completes the available portfolio of camera payloads for professional users of Quantum-Systems drones.

RGB and multispectral sensors have been available since the initial release of our Trinity UAV. In addition, the high payload of the Trinity F90+ allows RGB and multispectral sensors to be combined with the RedEdge-MX and Sony UMC-R10C camera.

With MicaSense Altum, our customers have long had a highly integrated multispectral sensor at their disposal. Consisting of a radiometric thermal camera and five high-resolution narrow bands, Altum produces advanced thermal, multispectral and high-resolution imagery in one flight for advanced analytics.

Based on the already integrated sensors and the flexibility of Quantum-Systems’ UAVs, the integration of the new Dual Camera System consisting was achieved in record time!

“While all of our sensors produce repeatable outputs with optimized GSD, the additional spectral information captured by the Dual Camera System makes it especially suited for AI/Machine Learning workflows. Now, integrated with the Trinity F90+, the combined solution offers customers the utmost capability in plant canopy analysis and classification tasks over large areas.” – Justin McAllister, CTO of MicaSense

Up to now, the use of this dual sensor has been reserved exclusively for multicopters. The integration into a small fixed-wing UAV opens up completely new possibilities in terms of range and ideally saves a lot of time through a completely integrated PPK process.

PPK 100% supported for all payload integrations with no added cost

Unlike other available mapping solutions, we are proud to offer our own PPK solution for all available sensor payloads including the Dual Camera System. Thanks to this seamless integration there is no need to deal with third party solutions in the PPK area – a big advantage!

Each of our drones comes standard with our iBase Ground Station and can generate high quality GPS data out of the box. PPK is therefore a basic feature of our systems at no additional cost to the customer. Combined with the broad coverage capabilities and user-friendly handling the time and money saved is a huge benefit!

iBase is an all in one GNSS reference station. It automatically logs GNSS reference measurements on the ground to a file on a micro SD card. This file enables QBase3D to do PPK processing of the collected survey data with a absolute accuracy of 2- 5 cm.

In the event of support, customers thus have a direct advantage over third-party solutions, as we have direct access to our PPK integration. Furthermore, individual PPK modifications are also possible thanks to vertical integration. Simply contact us in this regard.

Compatible with all Trinity F90+ UAVs

To take advantage of the new payload, no technical changes to already delivered Trinity F90+ are necessary. A corresponding update for QBase3D will be available before the planned launch at the end of May 2020.

The MicaSense Dual Camera System is available for order end of May through Quantum-Systems partners around the world.

We are very pleased to announce our latest cooperation with MicaSense.

MicaSense redefines remote sensing technology and pioneers the extraction of spatial data with its sensors. Together with many years of experience in sensor technology in the UAV sector, this makes them the ideal partner for our product portfolio.

The MicaSense RedEdge-M is now available as a payload option for the Trinity!

The RedEdge-M is outstanding powerful and at the same time a very compact camera ideal for our VTOL UAVs Tron & Trinity. It simultaneously captures five narrow spectral bands and uses the change in reflectance of plants in the border between red and near infrared spectrum, the so called red-edge. The global shutter design creates distortion-free images on every platform.

With the RedEdge-M the user is not only able to determine conventional vegetation indices like NDVI, NDRE or SAVI but can also draw conclusions about crop health through the additional rededge band. That provides a more accurate measure of not just plant vigor but plant health.

With these capabilities, it provides accurate multiband data for for wide-ranging agricultural remote sensing.

RedEdge-M: Professional Multispectral Sensor Kit for the Quantum-Systems Trinity UAV:

Key features:

  • One flight, multiple outputs
  • Calibrated for precise, repeatable measurements
  • Capable of generating RGB color images aligned with 5 specific spectral bands
  • Simultaneous capture of five discrete spectral bands
  • Narrowband optical filters provide full image resolution for each band
  • The capture rate enables faster flight speeds and lower flight altitudes ideal for the Trinity UAV
  • Global shutter design for distortion-free results
  • Calibrated for precise, repeatable measurements
  • Easy accessible single SD card stores all images with geotags
  • Intuitive web-based interface accessed from any Wi-Fi capable device
  • Serial connectivity with the payload compartment for full configuration, status, and control of the camera
  • The camera is already integrated in our payload compartment and includes a Downwelling Light Sensor (DLS) which is already part of the Trinity.
  • The calibrated reflectance panel for the RedEdge-M is included in a soft case.

The RedEdge-M as payload option is now available at our resellers.
