1. OPTIC TU-134 flying laboratory

OPTIC flying laboratory is intended for measurements of optical and meteorological parameters of the atmosphere and air composition, as well as for sensing of the underlying surface, including the water surface.

Applications: : meteorology, environmental studies, hydrology, oceanology.

Optik-E Flying Laboratory is equipped with remote sensing tools: lidars, spectrophotometers, and others, which allows solution of a wide variety of environmental problems from investigation of the transborder and regional transport of pollutants to description of individual pollution sources at the territory of towns, search for gas and oil escapes, registration of surface pollution sites.
Optik-E Flying Laboratory is fully self-contained.
In its basic characteristics, OPTIC corresponds to the best foreign analogs available in the USA: WP-3D Orion (NOAA) and Electra (NASA). OPTIC flying laboratory has no analogs in Russia.

Level of implementation: working model.

Patent protection: to be applied.

Possible cooperation: Conducting joint investigations.

Commercial offers: we are interested in rendering of research, monitoring, and measurement services. Estimated cost: depends on performed works; 180 000-300 000 RUB/hour..
