Default Gas sensors are embedded in drones to detect methane leaks

Many companies in the United States are working on new methane monitoring systems in an effort to anticipate methane leaks.PSI, a physical sciences company based in andover, mass., is developing an infrared laser uav that will park in standby mode on a charging platform where it can monitor the wellhead area.Once methane is detected through the beam path, the drone automatically rises into the air and switches on its search mode to find the available leaks. Once a leak is discovered, location information is reported to the appropriate person.

Chinese company has also developed a drone that can detect methane emissions and other gas leaks more quickly and accurately than other existing technologies. And the technology has practical implications. After successfully detecting a methane gas leak half a mile (800 metres) away, the drone could be used to ensure the gas and oil industries operate more efficiently and safely in the future.

Going through all your posts, are you running or trying to run some sort of startup Drone Company????

And if you are going to refer to the technology, you might as well list its associated label! Namely Remote Methane Leak Detector (RMLD™) which is this laser based technology you are referring to.

The mention of this Chinese company, they were not the first, PSIcorp used RMLD on drones during Hurricane Harvey.
