Results of outdoor tests of active laser scanner

The development of the laser scanner was delayed during the project but was subsequently demonstrated both in the laboratory and at the Advantica Spadeadam test facility in the UK.

The tests comprised the first evaluation of performance of the laboratory prototype in real world field conditions of methane gas leaks and weather conditions. Performance was assessed against various background reflecting surfaces and at different distances from the leak source and the response compared with conventional gas detectors.
