Agrowing and ADTi announce the availability of a sub 800 g. high-end dual-purpose RGB/Multispectral payload for DJI's Matrice 300
Agrowing Ltd., an Israeli world leading provider of award-winning* AI-Enabling multispectral sensors, and ADTi, a technology company focused on UAS Payload systems announce the availability of a plug and play Dual-Purpose mapping camera and multispectral sensor for DJI’s Matrice 300 drone**. The solution provides 10 band of 12MP each Multispectral imagery combined with Agrowing’s Quad lens and 60.2MP with standard full-frame Sony lenses***. The Dual-Purpose sensor is suitable for other UAV platforms.
Agrowing and ADTi offer an integrated solution of ADTi's Surveyor Max 61S and Agrowing's AI-Enabaling Quad lens of 10 band of 12MP per band, to the world's most popular commercial UAV platform, DJI's Matrice 300.
Agrowing's worldwide patented multispectral technology enables the conversion of ADTi's Surveyor Max 61S mechanical-shutter camera body into a full-spectrum high-end multispectral sensor for aerial agricultural and site scanning surveys.
The multispectral sensor is unique in its ability to acquire leaf-level multispectral imagery of 0.45mm per pixel from 3m altitude. Such imagery enables AI identification and classification of pests, diseases and various agricultural phenomena. It also provides superior NDVI surveys, acquiring multispectral imagery of 1.5cm per pixel with exceptionally high dynamic range from 100m altitude, which is three times higher than the state of the art sensors,
Agrowing's AI-enabling sensor technology overcomes most of the issues, which are typically related to multi-camera multispectral sensors, such as synchronization, close range parallax, and chroma aberration.
Integrated with DJI's Payload SDK, the integrated solution enables using the Surveyor Max 61S, which is a repacked Sony A7RivA camera, with a clip-in IR-Cut filter, identical to the original Sony filter, as a top-of-the-line RGB mapping DSLR.
ADTI's Surveyor Max 61S camera body weighs merely 230 g. compared to the original 659 g. of the A7RivA. The multispectral payload, including Agrowing's Quad lens and ADTi 3 Axis gimbal weighs less than 800 g.
The Surveyor Max 61S is a high-resolution full-frame mirrorless, built around Sony's BSI-CMOS sensor and a mechanical shutter that outputs 60.2MP images in RGB mode.
"We are excited to bring our superior multispectral sensing solution in ADTi's lightweight package, without compromising its quality. The ability to have such a high-end solution on DJI's leading commercial UAV, creates new opportunities for many." said Ira Dvir, CEO and Co-Founder of Agrowing.
"The fact that we can use our camera as a standard 60.2MP RGB mapping camera or as a multispectral sensor according to the survey's demands, just by replacing the lens and inserting a clip-filter, is great news to customers that had to integrate two different devices with their Matrice 300." said Kris Zhao of ADTi.
The Surveyor Max 61S multispectral 10 band of 12MP per band solution including the gimbal and the lens weighs less than 800 g.
