Who we are


GHGSat’s mission is to become the global reference for remote sensing of greenhouse gas (GHG), air quality gas, and other trace gas emissions from any source in the world


Services are delivered using (i) a patented, proprietary multi-platform system for collecting emissions data, and (ii) unique algorithms ingesting both GHGSat and third-party data to generate valuable operational, environmental, health & safety, and regulatory insights, as well as market and government intelligence for our customers.

Our Platforms

GHGSat is currently operating a high-resolution demonstration satellite. New, high-resolution satellite and very-high resolution aircraft platforms are being built for operation starting in spring/summer of 2019.

GHGSat-D (“Claire”)
GHGSat’s demonstration satellite, GHGSat-D (or "Claire"), was successfully launched in June 2016 and commissioned in July 2016. 
The design of two new, high-resolution satellites (GHGSat-C1 and GHGSat-C2) was completed in 2017. GHGSat-C1 (or "Iris") launched in September 2020 and C2 is scheduled for launch in December 2020.
Aircraft Sensor
A new, very-high-resolution aircraft sensor is being developed as a complement to GHGSat's satellite sensors. The aircraft sensor will enter service in 2020.
Future Platforms
GHGSat wants to offer the best possible emissions monitoring services to its customers. We are constantly evaluating hosted payloads, complementary satellites, ground sensors and other platforms to better serve our customers.

We love what we do
