RMUS Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) Package

NDAA Compliant OGI Solution

Product Description

The RMUS Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) package includes all the relevant hardware, software and accessories for professional-level inspection work. After vetting numerous UAS options, we selected the Sony Airpeak S1 Enterprise system for the drone platform of the package. With its high payload tolerance and NDAA complaint manufacturing, the Airpeak S1 Enterprise is an excellent platform for this application and is supported by Sony, one of the biggest names in electronics.

The RMUS OGI payload is the result of a combined effort between RMUS, Aerial Thermal Imaging and Sierra Olympia. Aerial Thermal Imaging provided the sensor integration and AerialOGI™ reporting software, so that the workflow is easy and the deliverables are automatically created for the client. This means you spend less time tinkering with software and more time on paying jobs. The Sierra Olympia Ventus OGI core is the sensor workhorse of this payload, providing high resolution imagery of potential leaks and other anomalies.

The RMUS OGI package includes all of the hardware, software and training so that you can get operational and booking jobs ASAP. We highly encourage you to call one of our Sales Reps at 800-739-8393 for any questions you may have.

RTK flight accuracy and high precision data acquisition

Multiple configurations for use with included base station or GNSS correction data service

Supporting both network-type and base station type RTK as well as PPK logging provides use in a wide variety of work environments.

Enables recording of positioning information with accuracy within a few centimeters

RTK enables accurate positioning with accuracy within a few centimeters, compared with GNSS with accuracy within a few meters. The positioning information is synchronized with high precision with the timing of image data capture, and the recorded position is offset to the center of the image sensor.

Stable flight even with strong magnetic field interference

Two GNSS antennas enable stable flight even in an environment where the geomagnetic sensor may affect the aircraft’s control due to the influence of inspection objects or surrounding structures.

Accurate flight with low-error self-position estimation

Self-position estimation with less error is achieved by using RTK in conjunction with vision sensors, improving aircraft handling during deceleration, hovering stability, and automatic flight accuracy. By using Direct Repeat Flight, periodic inspection flows can be reproduced as many times as desired with high accuracy, enabling efficient and highly accurate operations that do not depend on operator skill.

RTK flight accuracy and high precision data acquisition

High wind resistance to prevent being swept away by strong winds

Sony-developed propulsion devices such as propellers, motors, and ESCs, as well as the flight controller achieve wind resistance of up to 44.7 mph (20m/s)*. The aircraft resists being swept away by erratic winds at high altitudes and is stable even in strong winds at coasts and in canyons.

*Without payload

Supports long automated flights

Supports the ability to resume automated flight after it has been interrupted mid-flight, and battery hot-swapping, which allows battery replacement while the aircraft is powered on. Achieves approximately 20 minutes* of flight time while equipped with RTK and high-resolution camera.

*When equipped with LBP-HM1, RTK-1, GBL-PX1, Alpha 7R IV A, FE 35mm F2.8 Zeiss, cruising speed(9m/s) , sea level, no wind

AerialOGI™ Reporting Software

AerialOGI takes pride in offering a comprehensive reporting solution workflow. Your assigned pilot conducts aerial inspections of refineries, array of wellheads, pipelines, or other infrastructure, with a focus on detecting and reporting leaks across numerous locations. By utilizing the AerialOGI Reporting Tool, the pilot can prioritize safety and efficiency. This tool enables efficient sorting of hours of collected video, identifying relevant capture events that can be exported to your LDAR (Leak Detection and Repair) software.

During the flight, as the pilot prioritizes safety and completes all survey items, any observed leaks can be easily documented by pressing the capture button. It is highly recommended to record the entire flight, allowing for the initiation of a capture event whenever a leak is observed. Once all survey points are completed, the pilot can add the entire video collection to our reporting tool. This tool accurately identifies the precise moment when the capture button was pressed, generating an incident on our web portal and presenting actionable data.

Each capture event includes a Flat Field Correction (FFC) for the Optical Gas Imaging camera, ensuring the highest quality data is captured during the leak observation. All capture events are displayed on the web portal, providing the option to manually input data into your LDAR software. Alternatively, if you have our advanced bridge enabled, the web portal generates an instant export feature to seamlessly transfer the data to your LDAR software.

This is a capture event where a pilot observes a leak and then presses the Capture button. When this happens, the Optical Gas Imaging camera quickly calibrates to ensure the best video and data capture, and then starts the video notation event. The Capture button can be pressed as many times as needed during a flight and can be easily sorted into actionable data using our AerialOGI Reporting Tool.
