Bluefield are launching micro satellites with proprietary sensors and algorithms to provide methane emission monitoring at a scale, accuracy and cost that has never before been possible.

Rationale

Global warming is arguably the world’s biggest problem. Methane is 84 times more damaging than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. It is responsible for 1⁄4 of the global warming we’re already experiencing. Much of this is due to preventable leaks.

Bluefield’s backpack-sized microsatellites will provide:

  • Coverage of the whole world every 24 hours
  • Leak location pinpointed to within 20 meters
  • 90% reduction in monitoring cost
  • Detection of over 95% of industrial leaks
  • Real time data analytics
  • Reliable results due to a proprietary sensor design
