The research group in charge of Martian dust and gas detection instrument joins SENSIA’s GaSeS project. Infrared Lab of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (LIR-UC3M) is responsible of Dust Sensor instrument, foreseen to be on board of the ExoMars 2020 surface platform.
SENSIA will attend EUROPEAN RESEARCHERS’ NIGHT 2017 A dissemination action about GaSeS SME Instrument H2020
SENSIA’s scientific team will be at European Researchers’ Night 2017, held in Madrid at Espacio Fundación Telefónica next September 29th and promoted by Fundación para el Conocimiento Madri+d.
Assistants will be introduced to SENSIA’s GaSeS Project, funded by European Commission H2020’s SME Instrument. To this end, it has been prepared hands-on demonstrations of SENSIA’s infrared camera for fugitive gas emissions imaging. Goal: to explain the scientific and technological ground on gas imaging.
SENSIA’s cameras have achieved outstanding results in their first field test scheduled within GaSeS project. Energy provider TOTAL organized this test at their facilities in Lacq, which was attended by the main actors on fugitive gas emissions detection on industrial sites.
SENSIA’s project GaSeS: The first low cost optical gas imager for fugitive emissions mitigation, increasing energy efficiency in industry, has been recently notified by the European Commission as a selected winner of a Grant on the Horizon 2020 – SME Instrument Phase 2.
SENSIA has succeeded in overcoming H2020 SME Instrument Phase 1. This European Program seeks to boost the best strategic plans of innovatives SMEs, thanks to which SENSIA will develop “First low cost handheld infrared camera for fugitive emissions, early detection and location, increasing energy efficiency in industrial plants, infrastructures and utilities” project.
