In partnership with the Dutch authorities, Explicit conducted an airborne monitoring campaign over Dutch waters in September 2016, monitoring more than 300 vessels for emissions compliance. The campaign deployed a dual configuration of the Explicit Mini Sniffer System mounted on a twin-engine AS355NP helicopter. The campaign also collected comparative data, matching air samples against fuel samples taken onboard vessels during cruise.
