Leak Detection

Pipeline leak detection for methane gas has become more regulated over the past couple of years.  SkySkopes has flown over 1,000 miles of pipeline and continues to expand. 



A preliminary survey is the foundation of each project. It provides background information and establishes all the physical details required of a proposed project. Our innovative sensor technology is world-class in its accuracy. The sensor data can produce a calibrated high-density LiDAR point cloud that can be utilized for planning, designing, and construction of new infrastructure.
