Webinar: Single-blind determination of methane detection limits using Telops’ airborne
infrared hyperspectral imager

Free to attend | Live Q&A | All registrants will receive recording and presentation

About the webinar

Telops’ Hyper-Cam Airborne Mini is an aircraft-based remote sensing system to detect and quantify methane emissions. The system is based on thermal infrared hyperspectral imaging technology. The performance of the system was recently evaluated in a single-blind controlled methane release experiment in partnership with Alberta Methane Emissions Program (AMEP) and LiDAR Services International (LSI). Join Field Application Engineer Jean-Philippe Gagnon, and LSI's VP of Sales, Jim Cormack, for an in-depth look into the operating principles of Telops’ Methane Airborne Detection Solution as well as an overview of obtained results and assessed methane detection limits for a wide range of atmospheric conditions and gas release rates.

Performance accuracy parameters:

  • Leak flow (Kg/h)
  • Weather conditions
  • Flight parameters

Jean-Philippe Gagnon
Field Application Scientist
Jean-Philippe Gagnon holds a master's degree in physics and worked at Telops since 2005. Since then, Jean-Philippe has been involved in the development of their line of infrared cameras and hyperspectral infrared imagers.

As a field applications scientist, Jean-Philippe works with Defense and Security Labs, Industrial Labs and University Research Centers worldwide to perform measurement campaigns and support their data analysis efforts in a wide range of applications. More recently, he is part of the team using Telops’ new miniaturized hyperspectral imager to quantify emissions from the oil and gas and maritime industry and thus help better understand their emissions and how to reduce them.
