Scentroid’s DR2000 Drone Based Environmental Monitoring and Air Quality Analyzer
After years of testing and client feedback, we have improved upon the DR1000 technology in several ways. First and foremost, a weight reduction to 520g – 640g now allows for a much more diverse drone portfolio, and a smaller weight grants the operator a longer flight time. We have also improved the DR2000’s communication capabilities, offering more range and a faster/higher throughput.
Our advancements in sensor electronics allow for a much more stable and accurate reading, electrochemical sensor health and lifetime check, and improved particulate matter measurements. On top of that, our sensors now boast a significantly shorter warm up time.
Our newly designed advanced lightweight carbon fibre casing now provides a sleek, aerodynamic body, further reducing drag. And last but certainly not least, our improved sample intake provides continuous and smooth airflow for stable readings, dramatically reducing the pulsation from pumps.
The DR2000 Drone Based Environmental Monitoring Flying laboratory provides a robust platform to conduct both impact assessments and air quality measurements for a wide range of applications. This includes the monitoring of fugitive emissions, flare emissions, leak detection along oil pipelines, landfill methane, odour emissions, military or emergency applications, urban scanning, and much, much more!
A thermal imaging camera can also be installed for visual confirmation of fugitive emissions in a variety of applications such as landfills, storage tanks, and oil/gas pipes.
Intelligent Flying Air Quality Monitoring Laboratory
The DR2000 measures gases using a series of sensors selected based on application. With a library of over 50 sensors, Scentroid has every sensory requirement covered! Each DR2000 unit can be equipped with:
4 Electrochemical , 1 NDIR sensor (CO2), 1 PID sensor (VOC), 1 MOS, and PM 1, PM 2.5, PM 4 and PM 10
Volatile organic compound sensing using photo-ionization technology
C02, Methane, or Nitrous oxide using a non-dispersive infrared sensor
Sensing capabilities for particulates PM 1, PM 2.5, and PM 10
Total Reduced Sulfurs (or TRS), along with other contaminants using our Metal Oxide technology
Temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure
High accuracy GPS recording
High accuracy altitude measurements
Due to its new lightweight design, the DR2000 Drone Based Environmental Monitoring companion can now be mounted to a much wider series of drones. Our system is completely self-contained and requires nothing from the attached drone except to operate solely as a vehicle. Although it can be attached to many drones, we feature it being used with the DJI Inspire 2.
Reliability of the DR2000 Drone Based Environmental Monitor
The DR2000 provides 3 levels of data storage:
Storage of data on pre-installed SD card
Transmission and storage of data on the on-ground station
Transmission and storage of data on the cloud/localized server
DR2000 Cloud-Based Hosting
The central monitoring station is hosted on a secure cloud-based server; allowing remote access with any smart device that is connected to the internet. The access is restricted, and the data is encrypted for maximum security. Users are given an identification and password combination which will define their permission level. For example, a standard user who accesses the platform is only able to view and download the results, while a user with administrator access can reconfigure the system and redefine parameters.
The monitoring station is designed to collect all data from the sensors and present the sensor data in an easy to understand graphical interface.
Utilizing the DR2000 Flying Laboratory’s Local Server
DR2000 can be configured so that the native DRIMS2 software is hosted on a local server, specified by the user. This server must have an adequate connection to a secure Wi-Fi or LAN network. Scentroid will provide all the necessary hardware and software to set up a local server. This option includes Computer hardware, DRIMS2 software, Ethernet hub.
RF Communication (LoRa)
The DR2000 communicates with the Ground Station using a long-range LORA protocol. Lora provides full encryption and data verification to ensure all communications are secured and accurate. Using license-free sub-gigahertz radio frequency bands, LoRa enables long-range transmissions (more than 10 km in rural areas) with low power consumption. With a line of sight range of 10 Km, the DR2000 can send data back to the ground stations in any environment.
The data is stored on the ground station and synced through any wifi network to Scentroid’s powerful Drone Information Management System (DRIMS 2).
