Paper Abstract

There is growing interest in measuring gaseous emissions to understand their environmental impact. It is thus desired to identify and quantify such emissions, ideally from standoff distances. AFIT and Telops have performed several field experiments, using the Telops Hyper-Cam infrared hyperspectral imager to perform identification and quantification of gaseous emissions from various pollution sources. Recent experiments have focused on turbulent gaseous emissions from sources of great interest from the environmental protection community, such as emergency flares. It is important to understand the flare emissions under varying operating conditions. This paper presents the first results of flare emission measurements with the Hyper-Cam.
