CLAIRE Campaign Video
CLAIRE Campaign Video

You can help bring disruptive new technology to the fight against climate change!

We have built a nanosatellite called “CLAIRE” that will measure greenhouse gas emissions from any industrial facility in the world, more precisely and at a lower cost than existing alternatives. 

Your contribution will help fund demonstrations around the world, such as:

Each funded demonstration will measure greenhouse gas emissions from a selected site, working cooperatively with local site operators/experts. We need your help to fund these demonstrations around the world, in places where customers need to be convinced of our technology’s benefits.

There is strength in numbers – the more customers sign-up, the lower the cost will be for everyone. And the lower the cost, the more customers sign-up - enabling greater emissions reductions. Together, we can kickstart this loop and make a significant impact on greenhouse gas emissions!

We need to show the world what CLAIRE can do! The world’s leaders are meeting this month at the Paris Climate Change Conference to find new ways to take action against climate change. The time to act is now!

 

INTRODUCING CLAIRE 

CLAIRE is built and ready for launch. She has been developed, built and tested over two years. The image below was taken during vibration testing at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies’ Space Flight Lab earlier this year, showing CLAIRE in her deployment mechanism. Launch is booked on an Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle in the first half of 2016. 

How does CLAIRE work? Gases absorb light at specific wavelengths, creating a “spectral fingerprint” for each gas. Our satellite finds those fingerprints using sunlight, and measures the brightness of those fingerprints to determine how much of each gas is present in the field of view of the satellite. CLAIRE will measure two gas fingerprints - carbon dioxide and methane – the two most significant greenhouse gases. 

The satellite will orbit the Earth non-stop, every day, taking measurements from industrial sites anywhere in the world. It will, for example, measure oil wells in Texas, oil sands in Canada, power plants in Europe, coal mines in China, and even rice paddies in Vietnam. The output of those measurements will include imagery and data products, as simulated for a hydroelectric power plant in South America below. 

The image above shows concentrations of methane (CH4) in a plume carried downwind from an aerating weir at a hydroelectric dam.

Industrial site operators can use CLAIRE's measurements to better understand their greenhouse gas emissions, enabling them to control and ultimately reduce them. For example, CLAIRE can help coal mine and landfill operators find significant leaks of methane, then measure those leaks to justify a business case for gas-fired electricity generation.

THE PLAN

We’ve already raised the money to develop, build, test, and launch CLAIRE. Current funding only allows for a limited number of demonstrations; this campaign is raising funds to increase the number and geographic reach of our demonstrations around the world.

$100k will pay for one demonstration, and for each additional $50k raised, we will perform another demonstration, until we reach $1M in funds raised. 

The following graphic shows how we will allocate the $100k in funds raised, and how the allocation would change if we were to raise $300k or more.

  • “Fees” include Kickstarter fees and funds processing costs 
  • “Campaign” includes costs for creative design, advertising and publicity
  • “Rewards” include all fulfillment costs (e.g. costs for t-shirts, books and other rewards), except for shipping (which will be charged at cost to all backers)
  • “Demo” is what is left to help fund the satellite demonstrations after all other costs are considered. Demo funds will be used to pay for labour (for post-processing of satellite measurements), satellite operating costs (subcontracted), and demo setup costs (for technical marketing to formalize demo customer participation, as well as operational planning to prepare and schedule measurements).

If we are tremendously successful and raise over $1M, we will allocate all funds raised above $1M to building CLAIRE’s sister – our first commercial satellite!

PROJECT TIMELINE  

We will begin work on the first demonstration immediately following the closing of the Kickstarter campaign. Our existing team can work on 3-5 demonstrations in parallel. Each demonstration will require approximately three months of setup, followed by one year of measurements. Our goal will be to have the first demonstration (and up to a total of 5 demonstrations) ready before launch, and concluded in the first half of 2017. If we are fortunate enough to raise funds for up to 20 demonstrations, these will be spread in time to the end of 2018.

ABOUT US

We are a start-up based in Montreal, Canada. CLAIRE is owned and operated by GHGSat, which is a privately-owned Canadian small business. We were inspired by the launch of a carbon market in Quebec, and realized that we could commercialize world-class space technology (developed with support from the Canadian Space Agency through the 2000’s) for the benefit of carbon markets everywhere in the world.

We are a team of passionate engineers, scientists and environmentalists, who believe that change is best brought about by working constructively with industry and government.

CLAIRE would never have gotten as far as it has without an amazing group of partners:

GHGSat also acknowledges the support of its funding sources, including Sustainable Development Technology Canada, The Boeing Company, LOOKNorth, the Canadian Space Agency, and Canada's Industrial Research Assistance Program. 

THE DETAILS

If you've read this far, you probably want to know the details!

The underlying science for these measurements has been proven by NASA and other national agencies over the last 30 years. We have simply invented a new type of sensor that can make these measurements from a small satellite. The technology is patent-pending and protected worldwide. High-level specifications:

  • CLAIRE will measure carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) abundances in a field of view of approximately 12 km x 12 km and spatial resolution of less than 50m.
  • The satellite payload includes two sensors to arrive at such measurements: (i) a 2D Wide-Angle Fabry-Perot (“WAF-P”) imaging spectrometer , and (ii) a Clouds & Aerosols (“C&A”) sensor.
  • The WAF-P will measure vertical column densities of CO2 and CH4. 
  • The C&A will measure interference from clouds and aerosols in the field of view of the WAF-P.
  • The WAF-P spectral range is in the short-wave infrared (SWIR) at 1600-1700 nm, with multiple bands in a proprietary configuration. 
  • The C&A spectral range is in the visible and near-infrared (VNIR) at 400-1000 nm, with 325 bands at 1.9 nm spectral resolution. 
  • CLAIRE has a primary body measuring 20x20x42cm with an additional 7x18x42cm mezzanine on one side. The mass of CLAIRE, payload included, is < 15 kg.
  • CLAIRE’s orbit will be sun-synchronous at an altitude of 500 km, resulting in a site revisit period of approximately 14 days
  • CLAIRE's ITU designation is "GHGSat-D"
  • Emissions analyses require weather information from demonstration sites, but we can generate a first estimate using publicly-available data. CLAIRE therefore does not require in-situ equipment for measurement of abundances or for emissions estimates. That being said, we welcome the collaboration of operators of demonstration sites with any in-situ weather and emissions data available. 

CLAIRE has been rigorously tested in accordance with industry best practices, to maximize chances of mission success. Tests have been performed at component, subsystem and system levels - including functional tests demonstrating end-to-end system performance. The images below are from CLAIRE's most recent test - her final trip to the thermal vacuum chamber before launch.

For each demonstration funded by this Kickstarter campaign, we will:

  • Measure carbon dioxide and methane emissions from a selected demonstration site for one full year (likely 13-26 measurements in one year).   We will make the final decision on which sites are selected for demonstrations, based on recommendations from backers. Note that if a backer REALLY wants a specific site measured, we have a limited number of Kickstarter Specials for single measurements and seasonal measurements of requested sites. 
  • Analyze measured abundances to estimate emissions rates from the demonstration site. 
  • Provide all of our backers with satellite imagery of the demonstration site as it becomes available, through a private Internet site.
  • At the end of the full-year demo, provide all of our backers with the emissions analysis, through the same private Internet site.
The timing of reward delivery will depend on the type of reward. Rewards that depend on satellite data will be provided after launch.

Two of the rewards offer actual satellite greenhouse gas measurements. For clarity, we provide a comparison table below showing what is provided in the two rewards versus a full demo:

Rewards

Risks and challenges

Any space project will face daunting challenges. We have worked hard to mitigate development, manufacturing, assembly, integration and testing risks over the last two years, but risks still remain:

(a) Launch Delay: Our launch was originally planned for the second half of 2015, so we've already been delayed several months. Our launch provider is targeting a launch in April of 2016, but it is still possible that an issue with a preceding launch could further delay ours. If our launch is delayed, rewards will be delayed too.

(b) Launch Failure: We have booked our launch with a world-class, proven launch provider - but space launch is still a risky business and it remains possible that CLAIRE may not make it to her orbit. If that happens, we won't be able to deliver any rewards that depend on satellite data.

(c) CLAIRE Equipment Failure: Even if CLAIRE makes it to her orbit, it is possible the launch or resulting low Earth orbit environment will cause damage to the satellite or to its instruments. We have already tested CLAIRE to ensure that she can survive the launch and space environments to which she will be exposed, but there is always a risk of unknowns. If a complete failure happens, we won't be able to deliver any rewards that depend on satellite data. In our opinion, a complete failure is highly unlikely - it is more likely that we might have to operate with degraded performance, in which case we will communicate updates to our backers and ultimately we may only be able to provide a partial reward.

(d) CLAIRE Performance Failure: CLAIRE will be the first satellite to fly this new instrument. We worked with a world-class satellite manufacturer, and our design, manufacturing, assembly, integration and test was reviewed by third-party experts, but there remains a risk that our measured data will not match predicted performance. The same complete/partial reward explanation as for (c) above applies.

    CONCENTRATION MAP: Map, sampled on a UTM grid, providing: (a) surface reflectance (b) column density for a single species (c) estimated excess foreground density and (d) plume visualization layer combining the column density and surface reflectance in a high readability pseudocolor map

    ABUNDANCE DATASET: Set of (a) per-pixel column density (mol/m2) for a single species, and (b) per-pixel measurement error expressed as a standard deviation, for a single site, on a single satellite pass.

    We reserve the right to only accept appropriate requests. Before accepting your request, we will review site characteristics with you.
