Kuva Systems is a growth stage technology company helping oil & gas operators achieve their methane emission goals by deploying our proprietary methane camera which in conjunction with our SaaS based analytics, delivers to the user an image of the asset with a colorized gas plume with leak source pinpoint so that it can be found and fixed quickly. The time stamped images, when correlated with operational SCADA data and work order systems, many times allows operators to mitigate future emissions by optimizing the local process controls or identifying a failing piece of equipment.  Kuva Systems was founded by ex-defense contractors in the IR/spectroscopy imaging space, is 6 years old, and is based on Cambridge, MA.
