Sentera has announced the launch of the 6X, the highest-performing, most powerful sensor in its class. 6X delivers the data and processing necessary to meet a wide range of customer requirements, from broad acre, specialty, and permanent crop insights to science and research customers.
“The 6x currently delivers the best spatial resolution on the market across all spectral bands, providing the detailed vegetation mapping researchers need for developing advanced analytics and computer vision solutions,” said Zach Marston, Ph.D., Principal Scientist at Sentera. “This is combined with the ease of use required to make the 6X a workhorse that can deliver cutting-edge agricultural insights to researchers, academia, agronomists, and growers throughout the growing season.”
In a single pass, 6X generates the data necessary to produce the most commonly used, highest-value multispectral and visual brand products and analytical insights for seed performance, disease, weed pressure, nutrition, and yield estimation. It features 5 simultaneously triggered, precision-filtered 3.2MP global-shutter imagers, and one 20.1MP RGB imager, each with a dedicated, high-quality optical path. In the aggregate, the sensor produces 8 channels of image data, with fast frame rate performance and high radiometric accuracy.
