Aerial Gas Detection/Pipeline Monitoring
SenseImage Technologies is a world leader in the successful development of the first unmanned aerial gas detection system. The gas detection system utilizes the latest in Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) technology equipped with cutting-edge laser mass spectrometer to effectively detect gasses down to 1 ppm.
This highly advanced gas detection system is backed by powerful analytics and software which has been researched and developed to account for atmospheric and meteorological conditions during flight planning to best detect potential leaks. Those leaks are then analysed by specialists to calculate the highest-likelihood location of an actual leak source based on advanced gas plume modelling. Natural gas pipeline leak detection, liquefied natural gas (LNG) production, storage, and transport, GHG monitoring and facility monitoring area ideal applications for this gas detection service. Gases available for detection include: Ammonia (NH3), Acetylene (C2H2), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Ethylene (C2H4), Hydrogen Chloride (HCl), Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN), Hydrogen Fluoride (HF), Nitrous Oxide (N2O), Methane (CH4), and Water Vapour (H2O).
SenseImage Technologies leverages the latest in geomatics and Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) technology and geomatics expertise to acquire seamless high-resolution aerial imagery, topographic information and gas concentrations over pipeline right-of-way. This unique capability enables data acquisition, processing and analysis to provide cost-effective, comprehensive solutions when compared to more costly, manned aircraft systems or helicopter flights. Services Include:
Ultra High-resolution Imagery, Corridor Encroachment Mapping, Subsidence Depth Mapping, Unmanned Aerial Gas Mapping / Gas Plume Modelling, and Depth of Pipeline Cover.
