Clarifying details
We contact you to clarify the details: Time, location, acreage, permits.
We do our job
At the appointed time, we arrive on site and fly the pre-planned grids.
Detailed report
We provide a graphical report with the inspection results — including GPS references and time stamps.
Inspection by UAV-based laser detector is more cost-effective than aircraft-based surveys. Up to 400 acres can be surveyed in 1 day.
The diode laser spectroscopy method used in our detectors is the most accurate to date. Laser beam path up to 90 ft.
The flight path is set using Google Maps. We provide the customer with a comprehensive, informative report of the inspection with attached media files.
Highly qualified, Part 107 Certified Flight Engineers provide inspection and reports.
Laser-based natural gas detection system, sampling at 10 times per second coupled with customer-specific flight planning and automated mission execution.
Each project is individual for us. We design the project around your requirements and your specific geographical needs.

Honest answers to important questions
Can a methane detector detect other gases?
No, each device is designed to detect a specific gas. This provides a 100% probability of leak detection of methane and not any other gas.
Is laser radiation hazardous to the eyes?
Laser radiation is completely safe, it corresponds to class 1.
Does the remote laser detector work at night, in rain, fog and snowfall?
Yes. It is an active device, it emits at a certain narrow wavelength, so it does not need additional signal sources.
Is there impact of water vapor on the measurements?
No, there is no impact.
Do I need to calibrate detectors before commissioning?
No. The detector contains a reference container with methane inside and calibration is performed at each start-up and during operation.
How often do detectors need to be verified?
The detector does not need to be verified because it is not a measuring tool.
Why is a laser detector better than a common sniffer?
It works remotely. There is no direct contact with the hazardous environment.
Can the detector detect methane through glass?
Yes, because glass transmits the near infrared radiation well.
What is the algorithm for flying around an area?
The algorithm of flying around an area is set at discretion, based on the need to inspect specific points at the facility. This type of inspection is best of all carried out using UAVs, which can do this in a fully automatic mode.
Does leakage accuracy depend on UAV altitude?
Yes. Each device is designed for a specific gas detection limit length. You will find this information in the equipment technical specifications. The lower is the flight altitude, the higher the useful signal is and, as a result, the higher the sensitivity will be.
