Ammonia Detected with SIGIS 2 from 1.5km Distance

Using the SIGIS 2, this video shows the detection and identification  of ammonia being discharged from a stack at a distance of approximately 1.5km. Note the orange square directly above the stack which is the user defined Field of Regard (FOR). The area within the FOR is rapidly scanned with spectral information being captured at […]

Emission of SO2 from Popocatepetl Volcano, Central Mexico

Using images constructed with data taken with the SIGIS 2 Scanning Gas Imaging System, this accelerated video has been assembled from a series of continuous scans to illustrate the ability to monitor the changing concentrations and movement of captured gas clouds Back to All Videos

Emergency Response

    Bruker Optics Remote Sensing systems provide first response teams with the ability to detect and identify many species of hazardous gases, including Toxic Industrial Compounds (TICs) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), from a distance that is removed from the area where the compounds reside. The intuitive user interface of the OPUS RS software […]

Industrial Safety

Replace the need for multiple chemical-specific point sensors with Bruker’s  Remote Sensing systems that automatically locate, detect and identify fugitive compounds present in the area surveyed. The video and overlaid chemical images of the SIGIS 2 and the HI 90 provide location and concentration details as well as identification of the gases present. With the […]

Security and Defense

Stadium surveillance and large crowd monitoring have become increasingly important security applications that are now employing remote sensing technologies. Low false alarm rates and high sensitivity requirements present challenges that, in the past, have been difficult to meet. Bruker’s SIGIS 2 and HI 90 both permit video images with detected chemical maps overlaid onto the […]

Research

All of Bruker’s Remote Sensing systems utilize a format which allows detailed spectral analysis and cross-referencing of data collected against a library of up to 400 compounds for accurate interpretation. The EM27 FTIR spectrometer is used for applications that require high resolution, passive detection studies such as volcanology, ambient air studies and diffuse emission detection. […]
