Laser Falcon Methane Detector

The Remote Sensing Payload Instrument

The concept is based on Infrared Absorption Spectroscopy. The laser emits light (spectral range of 1,65 μm), which reflects back and is captured by the sensor. The outgoing and incoming signals are compared with the built-in reference cell. If methane is present along the laser path, the laser light is partially absorbed. An algorithm calculates the gas concentration in ppm×m (parts per million multiplied by meter). The value is instantly transferred to the remote control (RC) of the drone pilot and to UgCS software.

Applications: Landfill, gas reclamation, natural gas, manufacturing plants, above/below ground pipeline corridors, detection, regulation and reporting

Easy Data Gathering

Planning a mission for this specific sensor is just like any other mapping or corridor planning. No need to learn new techniques!

Select the “UgCS Methane Detector” from the WISPR Ground Control software and default parameters are automatically loaded. Drag the polyline over the site you wish to measure. Press “Upload” and then slide your finger across to begin the mission. The drone will perform its required duties, come back, land and automatically stop its propellers.

Simple Data Processing

Do not be afraid of processing the raw data into usable data!

The sky is the limit for methane; no pun intended. Were not limited to facilities, pipelines and landfills. Methane gas is a by product of many vegetation decaying processes. Municipal wastewater treatment plants produce methane gas too. Lets not forget about the amount of methane gas generated by livestock; how can you help?

More than just numbers

LMC Process software not only provides numerical data, but graphs of the measured parts which can be projected over a background image.

The ability to view the spike in detection coupled with a numerical table showing the latitude, longitude, time and concentration. Quick and Easy.
