Project update about flying platform
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 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.
