Portable Gas Sensors Improve Atmospheric Pollution Measurements

WASHINGTON, April 30–Different types of compact, low-power portable sensors under development by three independent research groups may soon yield unprecedented capabilities to monitor ozone, greenhouse gases, and air pollutants. The three teams will each present their work at the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO: 2012), to be held May 6-11, in San Jose, Calif.

The UTD UAVs (one shown above) are being used as the platform for the payload being developed at Princeton University by Prof. Mark Zondlo. A press release is available here.

This is part of a larger research effort focussed on gas leak detection and environmental monitoring.
