SA3C50A_UAVThis is the world’s first sensor for UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) to detect and measure methane gas.
From production through processing and transmission, to distribution; an impressive number of applications can be realized with the new Laser Methane Copter (LMC)
Applications are line, tank and asset inspections, landfill emission monitoring, and surveys in difficult to access areas that previously required scaffolding. The booming LNG and the shale gas industries are other markets with huge opportunities for leak detection services with the LMC sensor.
The LMC sensor is designed to fit on a large variety of UAVs / drones. The base for the sensor is our proven Laser Methane mini
instrument. The additional on-board LMC data grabber records the flown track together with the gas concentration in ppm*m. The data is available for reporting immediately following the flight and can be easily exported in a comprehensive leak survey report.
Loaner units for system validation and for integration purposes are available in a limited number. Together with a network of UAV providers, we also provide inspection services.
