What is the difference between the variations of the High-Precision Single Sensor?

The High-Precision Single Sensor comes in two variations:
Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI)
Normalized Difference Red Edge (NDRE)
These are two different vegetative indices that capture different bands of light to quantify vegetation. NDVI uses a combination of visible red light and near-infrared (NIR) light, which NDRE uses NIR light and the Red Edge.

What drones are compatible with the Single Sensor?

The High-Precision Single Sensor is compatible with DJI Mavic or Phantom series.

I would like to get more data than NDVI or NDRE. Do I need to upgrade my sensor?

For more data and analytics beyond NDVI or NDRE, a sensor upgrade is recommended. Learn more about our available sensors on our website here .

Can I operate the drone using Sentera FieldAgent? Can I import/view my data in FieldAgent?

FieldAgent iOS App allows users to plan and fly missions with compatible drones. To learn more, view our user guide for FieldAgent Mobile.

Do I need to fly this sensor with the single gimbal?
