mdTector1000CH4 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 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 is versatile and can be used for:

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