The Scentroid DR1000 can be used to sample and analyze ambient air at heights of up to 150 meters above ground level that was previously impossible to accomplish. Air quality mapping, model verification, analysis of potentially dangerous sites are all made possible by this novel innovation. The DR1000 can be attached to any rotary Wing or fixed wings drone, but Scentroid recommends using the DJI S1000 or the DJI MATRICE 600.
SAMPLING FROM HAZARDOUS SOURCES With the DR1000 sampling drone operator can stay safely away from hazardous sources while acquiring environmental samples.
DIRECT FLARE PLUME SAMPLING The DR1000 can be flown into the plume of a flare to take direct samples for analysis for chemical composition and olfactometry. Temperature and humidity of the plume are also measured to ease dispersion calculation.
CONTINUOUS CHEMICAL MONITORING The Scentroid DR1000 flying laboratory provides continuous monitoring of multiple chemicals. While in flight, five built-in chemical sensors can provide remote monitoring of chemicals selected at the time of ordering.
ABOVE 30 CHEMICALS Chemical monitoring can be provided for H2S, CH4, CO2, SO2, VOCs, and above 30 other selected chemicals. Chemical readings along with GPS position and altitude can provide 3D mapping of ambient pollution and odor levels. This feature can also be used to guide the operator into a plume for bag sampling.
DUST MONITORING The Scentroid DR1000 flying laboratory can also provide continuous monitoring of PM 1, 2.5 and 10 using a laser scattered particulate counter. The dust monitoring can be installed in addition to the 5 chemical sensors for complete ambient air quality assessment.
THERMAL IMAGING A thermal imaging camera can also be installed for visual confirmation of fugitive emissions in a variety of applications such as landfills, storage tanks, and oil/gas pipes.
IMPROVES AIR SAMPLING CAPABILITY OVER DIFFICULT TERRAIN AND AT DIFFERENT HEIGHTS It is often necessary to sample stacks, ponds, and other location where human access is difficult and /or dangerous. Furthermore, operator exposure to dangerous chemicals during sampling must be carefully considered. The Scentroid DR1000 flying laboratory drone allows the operator to stay safely away from potentially hazardous sources while acquiring the required air sample for laboratory analysis. The sampling drone can also be used to sample ambient air at an elevation of up to 150 meters above ground level that was previously impossible to accomplish.
ENDLESS APPLICATIONS The DR1000 Flying laboratory provides a robust platform to conduct an impact assessment and air quality measurement for a wide range of applications including monitoring of:
Leak detection along oil pipelines
Landfill methane and odor emission
And much more
CONTINUOUS CHEMICAL MONITORING 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 onboard 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.
COMMUNICATION DR1000 will come with simultaneous GPRS and WIFI communication capabilities. The GPRS is used to send data to our new cloud server based Drone Information Management System (DRIMS). The secure online system will allow you to remotely monitor and even control the flying laboratory as well as store and process the data collected. The Drone also connects to the ground station using a WIFI communication protocol. Both Ground station and Cloud-based servers run DRIMS software and simultaneously can log data from multiple DR1000 drones.
GROUND STATION The Ground station that is included with every DR1000 Flying Laboratory consists of a specialized laptop with pre-installed Ubuntu and Windows 10 operating systems, high gain powerful WIFI antenna, and DRIMS software. DRIMS (Drone Information Management Software) provides the user with a means to control the flying laboratory and log all acquired data. DRIMS will provide both live data as well as all historical data for all sensors plus GPS position, Altitude, Temperature, and humidity. The user can also command the drone when to take the sample, select the sampling interval, adjust the sampling rate, and perform routine maintenance such as calibration of sensors. The laptop will be dual boot and can be used for other work including mapping the data in GIS software, viewing path on Google Earth, analyzing in Excel, or any other task.
