Methane Mapper

Multi-Sensor UAV Payload Infrared Camera for Methane Detection

  • The ICI Methane Mapper pairs the TDLAS with the Sony R10C high-res visible camera allowing for the collection of concentrated data at 2 Hz above buried gas pipelines.
  • This gives users a clear indication of where underground leaks may be occurring.
  • The data set from the TDLAS is instantly viewable as a KML file and can be color-coded based on threshold levels for easy analysis.
  • The visible camera provides the end user with an up-to-date visible mosaic of the aerial screening analysis.
