DR1000 Flying Laboratory – Drone Environmental Monitoring

The latest in drone environmental monitoring, the Scentroid DR1000 flying laboratory is able to sample as well as analyse ambient air at up to 150 meters off the ground. Utilise the DR1000 to analyse potential dangerous sites, or to perform air quality mapping and model verification.

The DR1000 is highly configurable and is able to be connected to 5 different sensors from the Scentroid list of approved sensors.

Live Chemical Monitoring

H2S, VOCs, CH4, SO2 and CO2 as well as another 30 selected chemicals can be monitored using the DR1000 Flying Drone. It has been purpose designed to be a flying laboratory for the continuous monitoring of multiple chemicals. Whilst the DR1000 is in flight, it will use five chemical sensors to facilitate the remote monitoring of the chemicals you nominated at the time or order.

You can achieve 3D Mapping of ambient pollution as well as odour levels via sensor reading and GPS position information which include altitude. This handy 3D mapping can be utilised as a guide for the operator who can steer the drone into a plume for bag sampling.

Air Sampling Over Tough Terrain

At times, you may find yourself needing to sample stacks, waterways, ponds, or other different terrain locations where human access is dangerous. Or you may find yourself wanting to limit operator exposure to dangerous chemicals during sampling, this is where the Scentroid D1000 Flying Drone comes in handy.

The D1000 Drone Environmental Monitoring unit can be utilised to keep the operator safe, well away from potentially dangerous chemicals whilst still acquiring the readings and air samples needed for lab analysis.

Air Quality Uses

  • Landfill methane and odour emission
  • Fugitive emission
  • Leak detection along oil pipe lines
  • Flare emission

In addition to air sample bag collections, the Scentroid DR1000 flying laboratory is capable of providing up to five remote chemical sensors to monitor chemical concentration levels. Data from on-board sensors are transmitted to a customer supplied operator’s Android phone to be viewed live and logged. While in flight, every 2 seconds, the drone will record GPS positions, altitude, temperature, humidity, H2S, VOC, SO2, Methane, and any chemical that is being monitored. The data can be used to create a map of the emission plume in real-time.
