mdTector1000CH4 aaS, is a fully integrated aerial methane inspection package. It’s purpose-built for professionals who are responsible for inspecting methane gas infrastructure.

See and detect.
mdTector1000CH4 aaS consists of a Pergam gas sensor, mounted and integrated perfectly with a Microdrones md4-1000 UAV. It has an onboard HD video link. That means that you can see in real time what you are detecting with the laser sensor.

It goes where people shouldn’t.
Whether your gas infrastructure is in a hard to reach riverbed or near a steep cliff… the tough, carbon-fiber built drone will easily navigate terrain that would be difficult, dirty or dangerous by traditional foot crews. Microdrones is known for its field-proven aircraft platform. It’s sturdy, stable, resistant to wind and weather, as well as dust and dampness.

A drone package for people who get stuff done.
The mdTector1000CH4 aaS is versatile and can be used for:

  • Natural Gas Line Surveys
  • Tank Inspections
  • Gas Well Testing
  • Landfill Emission Monitoring
