Miniature Airborne Methane Sensor, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

KalScott Engineering, and the subcontractor, Princeton University propose the development and demonstration of compact and robust methane sensor for small Unmanned Aerial Systems (s-UAS) by synthesizing state-of-the-art, laser-based detection methods with the rapidly increasing s-UAS market. The overall goal of this project is to develop and demonstrate (via flight test) laser-based flight-weight methane sensors. In Phase I, the sensor will be built and lab-tested, followed by initial flight tests on KalScott's Cessna 210. In Phase II, a refined version of the sensor will be built, and flight tested, first on the Cessna, and then on a small UAS. More »
