This is what we do best
Scientific Aviation is leading the way in developing the latest methods and technologies in airborne atmospheric measurements. We are a proven and trusted provider for fast, accurate, and cost-effective solutions for leak detection, emissions quantification, air quality research, and more.
Stephen Conley, founder and CEO, started with a humble love for atmospheric science and aviation. This quickly transformed into innovative science and technology that has forever shaped the way global emissions are quantified.
We work with federal, state, and local governments agencies, NGOs, universities, private industry, and international organizations
SOOFIE: The future of leak management .
This ground-based system employs a modified form of Scientific Aviation’s airborne emissions flux quantification methodology. Inside every SOOFIE control box is a custom-designed emissions measurement system that reports real-time measurements of methane, CO, relative humidity and temperature. Using a 2D sonic anemometer the system monitors wind speed and direction, allowing for the accurate modeling of any observed emission plumes on site. These values are then used to identify the most likely component source of the leak, allowing for component-level detection and leak differentiation. The central communications board is equipped with LTE cellular connection which uploads raw data to a secure dual-encrypted server every 1 minute, where emissions rates are calculated every 15 minutes. When the system detects a leak, the operator is notified within minutes.LEARN MORE
