University of Surrey to Develop Helium Kite-Mounted Gas Sensors

The University of Surrey received a £620k grant to create gas sensors mounted on helium kites for monitoring gas emissions and wind directions. These lightweight wireless sensors, developed in collaboration with local businesses, will be operated by autonomous robots. The technology aims to improve emission monitoring across various locations, including Thames Water treatment sites and rice paddies in Spain, leveraging a diverse skill set from fluid dynamics to robotics. Although this example is not a major helium demand driver, we see the cumulative growth of such small innovative projects to increase if helium prices ease.
