Entrust your methane leak detection needs to us, and benefit from the peace of mind that comes with cutting-edge technology and dedicated expertise.

DJI Matrice 350 RTK

Using a drone like the DJI Matrice 350 RTK provides significant advantages for aerial inspections in terms of accuracy, safety, efficiency, and data quality.

Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) Positioning: RTK provides centimeter-level positioning accuracy. This is especially valuable for inspection tasks where precise positioning is required

Long Flight Time: The DJI Matrice 350 RTK offers a long flight time, allowing it to cover large areas or conduct detailed inspections without frequent landings to change batteries.


Obstacle Avoidance: The drone has a sophisticated obstacle avoidance system, making it safer to fly close to structures and in challenging environments.

Advanced Sensors and Cameras: The drone is compatible with the Zenmuse H20T series, which offers a combination of a zoom camera, wide camera, thermal imaging, laser rangefinder, and a radiometric thermal camera. This multi-sensor payload is essential for diverse inspection scenarios, allowing operators to detect heat sources and measure temperatures, making it invaluable for tasks like detecting faults in electrical equipment or assessing the health of solar panels

Weather Resistance: It's designed to withstand adverse weather conditions, which means inspections can be carried out in light rain and strong winds.

O3 Transmission System: The OcuSync Enterprise allows for a 15 km transmission range, 1080p triple-channel video downlink, and 2-way audio communication, making remote inspections more feasible.

Waypoint and Mission Planning: Automated flight paths can be pre-programmed for consistent, repeatable flight routes - ideal for periodic inspections.

Versatility: The Matrice 350 RTK is not limited to one type of inspection. It can be used for infrastructure, energy, utilities, and even agriculture, making it a versatile tool for companies with diverse assets.

Gas Leak Detection

    The Ventus OGI camera core offers cutting-edge Optical Gas Imaging. Leveraging the newest in detector technology, cooling systems, and lens design, it excels at spotting and illustrating leaks from gases like methane, propane, butane, and other hydrocarbons.

     Its blend of advanced features makes it the market's tiniest, lightest, and most energy-efficient OGI camera core. This makes it perfect for inclusion in gimbals, drone platforms, or fixed, ongoing surveillance systems. The Ventus OGI boasts a top-tier 640 x 512, 15µm pixel pitch "Hot MWIR" detector matrix. This is paired with a specialized narrow bandpass cold filter, set within a compact, durable, closed-loop stirling cooler. Combined with an f/1.5 cold shield and a specially designed lens, it offers unparalleled thermal sensitivity. At just 580 grams and dimensions of 148mm x 69mm x 73mm, it's the go-to choice for OEMs and system integrators.

Sniffer4D - Gas Detection and Mapping Device


Our UAV-based system captures precise data on gas concentrations, location, and time, and sends this information to our advanced analytical software, Sniffer4D Mapper, for real-time analysis. This software visualizes and processes data from one or multiple Sniffer4Ds simultaneously. Decision-makers can view the results in three intuitive formats: 2D grid, 2D isoline, and 3D point cloud map. Post-flight, a detailed PDF report is generated showcasing the flight path and gas concentration data.

For petrochemical companies, routine inspections of oil and gas pipelines are critical for safety, aiming to preemptively detect and address leaks. Traditional manual inspection methods face challenges given the vast and intricate pipeline networks. These conventional methods come with significant downsides, such as a hefty workload, increased labor costs, inefficiency, potential safety risks to inspectors, time constraints, and hurdles in maintaining quality control.

To address these challenges, our solution integrates the Sniffer4D multi-gas detection system (rated XP2) with drones. This combination offers a more efficient and effective approach to inspecting oil and gas pipelines, significantly aiding in the safety efforts of petrochemical enterprises.
