ABB launches world’s fastest, most sensitive drone-based gas leak detection system.
We are proud to be working with ABB as they announce their latest addition to their ABB Ability Mobile Gas Leak Detection System, HoverGuard (the world’s fastest, most sensitive drone-based gas leak detection system).
- Combining patented LGR-ICOS™ laser technology, wind velocity (TriSonica Mini sonic anemometer) and GNNS sensors, and advanced data analytics, the HoverGuard™ solution allows customers to detect leaks far from hard-to-reach sources in minutes.
- Enables detection and mapping of natural gas leaks while flying with unprecedented speed, accuracy and reliability.
- Can detect, precisely locate, and estimate the size of natural gas leaks at a rate that covers 10-15 times more land area per minute than traditional methods saving considerable time and allowing users to survey locations inaccessible by road or walking.
HoverGuard can detect natural gas leaks around hard-to-reach sites such as bridges, high-rise buildings, areas with right-of-way restrictions or vegetation coverage, and pipelines.
It enables detection and mapping of natural gas leaks while flying with unprecedented speed, accuracy and reliability.
HoverGuard operates from a UAV to detect gas leaks while flying. The system consists of the UAV with GNSS location tracking, an off-axis ICOS analyzer to detect gas concentrations, the TriSonica Mini Sonic Anemometer to measure wind speed and direction, and leak detection and mapping software (ICOS FastScanner).
This comprehensive UAV-based solution can detect, precisely locate, and estimate the size of natural gas leaks at a rate that covers 10-15 times more land area per minute than traditional methods. This saves considerable time and allows users to rapidly survey locations inaccessible by road or on foot. Additionally, with its extremely sensitive technology and fast response rate, HoverGuard can quickly detect leaks more than 100 meters from their source.
