Scientific Aviation Completes Its First International Drone Project
For the first time, Scientific Aviation has gone global! As part of a methane monitoring partnership with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Steve Conley (CEO) and Chelsea Stockwell (lead drone scientist) travelled overseas to Ukraine at the beginning of June.
The mission involved carting both scientists and equipment halfway around the world, including two of the smaller quadcopter drones each outfitted with atmospheric gas analyzers.
Ukraine has the third largest shale oil reserves in Europe, making oil and gas utilities major players both in the economy and methane emissions of the country as a whole. This international partnership is the first of several upcoming international projects for Scientific Aviation, and is an exciting step forward in the realm of global atmospheric methane quantification.
