This new course explains how these cameras can be used on drones to produces specialist data. A multispectral camera captures image data within specific wavelength ranges (also called spectral bands) across the electromagnetic spectrum. They often include a combination of both visible light and EM radiation outside of what the human eye can see.
Multispectral cameras mounted on UAS are primarily used in one industry right now; agriculture. By picking the right spectral bands, a UAS-mounted multispectral camera can be used to manage crops, soil, fertilizing and irrigation more effectively.
