Laser Falcon is a very lightweight laser-type methane gas detector. The dramatically reduced weight of the product allows variety of new applications of the device including airborne methane monitoring and robotic instrumentation. This device can detect methane that exists about 100 meters away instantly. Measurement data is sent through a communication port and is backed up in a micro SD card. Power supply through the external power connector enables continuous operation of the device.

Laser Falcon is a compact and lightweight instrument that is easily integrated with most types of UAVs.  Using the same measurement principle as the popular Laser Methane mini (LMm), the Laser Falcon remotely  detects gas leaks utilizing laser technology. Much lighter than the LMm, this unit can be used in a variety of applications – including airborne methane monitoring and robotic instrumentation. This simple-to-use unit does a self-calibration check during the start-up process and needs no periodic maintenance. Measurement data is saved on a Micro SD card (included). It’s the perfect solution to difficult to survey areas; the Laser Falcon and your UAV save inspection time compared to a traditional walking gas leak survey.


The onboard computer UgCS SkyHub is the key element that enables the full integration of the drone, laser methane detector, and ground control software UgCS. The UgCS SkyHub, designed by SPH Engineering, saves the gas detector's data in .csv format and transfers it instantly to the drone pilot's remote control and the desktop software UgCS. This way, the operator detects leaks in real-time and ensures faster response time.

The UgCS SkyHub also enables adding a radar altimeter to allow the flight in True Terrain Following mode: the drone (UAV) accurately follows the terrain during the flight, based on data received from the radar altimeter. True Terrain Following makes the drone fly at constant AGL altitude without importing a precise Digital Elevation Model (DEM) height-map into UgCS.

While the FAA does not require insurance for drone flights, we highly recommend having insurance in case of mishaps with flying drones.  When you rent a drone it is your responsibility to use it in a manner consistent with the laws and return the drone in the same condition it was in before rental.  

There are two types of insurance for drones. 

  • Liability: One is liability insurance, this will cover your flights in the event of a crash or incident.

  • Hull Coverage: Hull coverage covers the drone if it is damaged.  Typically you must have liability insurance to get hull insurance.  The Sensor may also be covered separately if it is a removable sensor.

Check with your insurance provider to see if they cover the drone rental and flights.  If they do not, we highly recommend that you have insurance when you are flying drones.  We have found that offers some of the best options for Drone Insurance.
