Fugitive and diffuse emissions can be notoriously difficult to measure. The measurement environment is often highly dynamic and difficult to access. Explicit enables clients to monitor these free air emissions by offering advanced airborne measuring concepts as custom solutions including:
Mini sniffer sensors
To sample emissions, Explicit provides several proprietary mini sniffer payloads for mounting on both drones and helicopters. Depending on the measurement scenario, the mini sniffers are optimized to target specific gasses and detection ranges using cutting-edge micro sensor technology, ensuring the best possible data capture.
Smart Flight software
To support pilots in safely and intelligently navigating free air plumes, Explicit has developed several patented methods for how to most optimally measure these emissions. Plume navigation is further supported by our proprietary Smart Flight software. The solution includes quality scoring protocols to assist pilots in evaluating their plume positioning to ensure the best sampling results.
Integrated Emissions Lab services
To ensure high-quality results, Explicit connects operational teams in the field with our cloud-based Emissions Lab (E-Lab) to produce quality-controlled emissions reports in accordance with best practice standards. The Lab also provides support from emissions analyst experts.
The E-Lab also comes with online resources providing clients with detailed documentation on individual emissions as well as statistical tools for broader analysis of datasets.
Our emissions monitoring technologies and expertise are provided as adaptable service solutions, fitted to the task and the needs of the client. In some cases Explicit will provide full monitoring solutions including operations, data processing and reporting. In others, we work closely with operating partners and clients to execute inspections in the field while we focus on providing instrument payloads, data analysis support, training, and quality control.
