“AGX840 delivers Sentera 4-channel performance in a fully-integrated, gimbaled package for DJI Enterprise,” said Sentera CEO Eric Taipale. “With up to eight bands of multispectral data and image capture and gimbal control via standard apps, it’s an incredibly powerful and easy-to-use product.”

AGX840 streamlines and simplifies data collection. Four separate optical channels can be configured with a variety of standard filtering options, or custom-filtered in thousands of unique configurations. Using the DJI SKYPORT interface, the sensor can be installed and removed in seconds, without tools. AGX840 data is compatible with preferred software analytics tools, ensuring seamless integration into existing operations.

The sensor’s integrated brushless gimbal stabilizes the imager against aircraft motion. Full gimbal control via iOS and Android apps are supported, and in high-accuracy applications, the gimbal ensures that the image path is oriented straight down. The resulting multispectral data support a variety of Sentera and third-party analytics and index products.

AGX840 Sensor Features:

  • Plug & play – snap in and out, no cables, connectivity, or special brackets
  • DJI Payload Software Development Kit (P-SDK) and DJI SKYPORT technology assure seamless software and data integration
  • Standard configuration: RGB, Red, RedEdge, and NIR
  • Fully customizable to support virtually limitless spectral capture
  • Integrated gimbal
  • Fully integrates with the DJI Matrice drone series (M200, M210)
