Telops Hyper-Cam Methane: Infrared Hyperspectral Cameras for the detection of methane gas
Telops’ Hyper-Cam Methane is an advanced imaging Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer for remote sensing of methane gas (CH4). This instrument has been specifically designed to detect and monitor methane gas leaks and emissions at even very low concentrations and flow rates. Visualizing methane gas in real time from an airborne platform or on the ground in an open path set up allows you to localize the source of a methane leak, which is invisible to the human eye, and shows you the direction the gas is heading. The Hyper-Cam Methane enclosure makes it ideal for outdoor measurements as it is designed to sustain changing weather conditions. This remote sensing instrument combines high spatial, spectral and temporal resolution providing unmatched performance.
This infrared hyperspectral imager incorporates a Michelson-type interferometer which operates in the 7.35 μm to 8.25 μm spectral region and provides user-selectable spectral resolution up to 0.25cm-1. The Hyper-Cam Methane is equipped with a 320×256 pixel stirling cooled focal plane array detector (Mercury Cadmium Telluride – MCT type).
