Augmented Reality Imaging

We break the measurement problem down into clear data capture needs and purpose-built measurement tools. Its edge computing platform detects and visualizes emission events, captured in day-only or day-night mode, then transfers visuals to the cloud in near-real-time. False-alarm mitigation and plume quantification are performed in the cloud. Augmenting the reality of on-site imagery with actionable information about emission dynamics guides operational decision-making.

Accurate Detection

Our detection methods reveal methane presence via non-thermal IR imaging. Our camera technology allows root cause analysis of emissions by exposing actionable detail, allowing mitigation. These emissions are commonly not seen by ground-level point sensors due to the height of the emission, and the natural dispersion of the plume.

Day & Night Operation (Coming Soon!)

The Kuva platform is configurable for lowest-cost, daylight-only operation, and day-night data capture via an illuminator-reflector module. The low-power illuminator is integrated within every Kuva camera and activated by software as needed. Reflector assemblies are based on simple, rugged road sign retro-reflectors and require no detailed adjustment or calibration.

Fail-Safe Validation

Kuva Technology

Gas cloud imagery is pre-processed initially in the camera to control for ambient variables on-site. Candidate images are transferred to the cloud and further validated by our processing software to eliminate false-positive alerts. This resilience equips operators to focus scarce resources on known leaks while avoiding costly manual confirmations.
