Project update about flying platform

November 14, 2019

The Consortium has decided to rely on new airborne platforms: a zeppelin for initial tests and comparison to a ground based sensor installed on a tower (at tower test in Switzerland) and a manned helicopter for final verification and measurements (see Figure).


The Consortium is in the procurement phase to get the corresponding companies for both cases. The manned helicopter will be provided by a Danish company using airborne sensors for the detection of gaseous species in emitted by ships. The company is very interested to have a CH4 sensor on board, which is one of the species that our sensor will be able to detect. The initial plan for the real-life test of the developed sensor is to fly inside the clouds of different ships to measure the elevated levels of gases.


Schematic of the sensing process. Our developed sensor will be placed besides the other gas detectors.
