Why use UAV Laser Falcon?​

UAV Drone Laser Falcon is a very lightweight laser-type methane gas detector which uses the same measurement principle as the popular Laser Methane mini.
The dramatically reduced weight of the product allows a variety of new applications of the device including airborne methane monitoring and robotic instrumentation.
Measurement data is sent through a communication port and is backed up in a USB stick. Power supply through the external power connector enables continuous operation of the device.

Features

The lightest Solution

UAV Drone Laser Falcon sensor is the smallest gas leak detector in the LMC line. Can be installed on any UAV, even the most compact.

Laser Falcon Advantages

Progressive GLD solutions

Speed up inspection

Inspect your plant 10 times faster and instantly assess leak severity.

Keep workers safe

Detect leaks from a safe distance of up to 100m and reduce your exposure time to hazardous substances.

Increase reliability

Don’t miss any leak in your plant and ensure proper repair through effective reporting.

Ultimate Tool For Methane Detection

The UAV Drone Laser Falcon was manufactured in the USA and integrated for waste management applications.

With unparalleled robustness, the IF1200, known as the Astro, like the DJI M300, is configured with the Laser Falcon to create a powerful solution for methane gas detection applications.

Principle of Remote Gas Detection
UAV Drone Laser Falcon is based on the utilization of laser absorption spectrophoto-meter of methane gas for gas mesurement. The system detects natural gas leaks by emitting a laser at a particular wavelength and analyzing the light reflection from an object to determine how much was absorbed by the methane in the natural gas.The measured gas volume is expressed by methane column density (ppm × m): methane density (ppm) multiplied by lenght (m).The Optical Unit (OU) of the Laser Falcon detector could be installed on a gyro stabilized platform, thereby ensuring that the laser beam is continuously directed towards pipelines and other natural gas facilities. Moreover, this setup allows for precise monitoring and detection of potential leaks or anomalies.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

No, each device is designed to detect a specific gas. This provides a 100% probability of leak detection of methane and not any other gas.

Laser radiation is completely safe, it corresponds to class 1.

Yes. It is an active device, it emits at a certain narrow wavelength, so it does not need additional signal sources.

No. The detector contains a reference container with methane inside and calibration is performed at each start-up and during operation.

The detector does not need to be verified because it is not a measuring tool.

It works remotely. There is no direct contact with the hazardous environment.

Yes, because glass transmits the near infrared radiation well.

Our company specializes in methane detectors, but at your request we can supply a fully ready-to-use complex. Due to our partnership with UAV manufacturers, we can fully integrate the detector into the UAV design.
