ABOUT KAIROS

Through cutting-edge research and engineering, we’ve created an alternative to the traditional aerospace way of doing things. We use our hard science expertise to build instruments that pull never-before-seen data from the physical world. Then, we use proprietary algorithms to refine it into data products that produce real value for real businesses. At Kairos, we sell information – not hardware.  

 

OUR CULTURE

At Kairos Aerospace, we love science and engineering, we love getting our hands dirty with hardware and software, and we love seeing our work make a difference in the real world, for real businesses. We’ve created a collaborative, supportive, and fun environment that is based on integrity and treating people right. It’s never easy, but it’s never boring.

 

OUR SCIENTISTS

Kairos scientists are the best in the business. They are visionaries who are able to connect high-level thinking to real world applications, and who have a healthy amount of humility and respect for our customers’ on-the-ground experience. Their extensive background in physics, hardware engineering, and software makes them uniquely qualified to provide best-in-class solutions.

 

OUR EXECUTIVE TEAM

Our executive team is dedicated to understanding and meeting the needs of our customers. Our advisory board is comprised of experienced oil and gas industry executives, software entrepreneurs, and technology investors.  


WANT TO WORK HERE?

We are always looking for passionate people who love to figure out how the world works: tinkerers, programmers, scientists, field engineers, business specialists.


Line of Business


AERIAL METHANE IMAGING: FASTER, SAFER, LOWER COST

Kairos combines patented instrument and proprietary data analysis pipeline to provide customers with rapid, clear, actionable information about where their methane emissions are located.

 

HOW IT WORKS

Our patented LeakSurveyor™ methane spectrometer measures the absorption of reflected sunlight by methane molecules. We can survey up to 100 square miles per plane per day, drastically reducing inspection and compliance costs and time. We fly our instrument at 3,000 ft to rapidly spot the locations with the largest sources of methane emissions, while simultaneously collecting optical images and GPS location data to help ground crews identify emissions sources. These locations and images are provided to operators’ leak detection and repair teams for on-site inspection and repair.

 

SAFETY FIRST

Aerial leak detection allows Kairos to easily monitor equipment that is wide-spread or difficult to access by ground. These areas are rarely surveyed, but Kairos’ scans identify and prevent worsening of leaks that would otherwise go undetected. The ability to scan more frequently from the air allows leaks to identified, precisely located and repaired faster. We know our clients are concerned with being good neighbors and corporate citizens. So are we. That’s why we alert operators immediately when we find leaks near schools or homes. Much like our clients, safety is a top priority.

 

WHY KAIROS?

 

BIG LEAKS MATTER MORE

Kairos is built around the principle of minimizing the total volume of methane being leaked, rather than the total number of leaks, as quickly as possible. Methane emissions are highly skewed, with a few leaks emitting large amounts of methane, which means fixing those leaks has a greater overall impact.

 

PROVEN RESULTS

Since 2016, Kairos has surveyed over 10,000 square miles, identified more than six billion cubic feet of methane and is currently conducting an unprecedented survey of every production facility and pipeline across the entire Permian Basin.

 

EFFICIENCY IN TIME, RESOURCES

Pay less money for higher amounts of identified emissions and prioritize maintenance budgets by sending crew where they’re needed most. By using aerial surveys, Kairos can identify leaks much more quickly and at a lower cost than having crews inspect sites by foot. The resulting Kairos data is immediately actionable by operators’ existing repair crews and processes.

 

ACCESSIBLE AND POSSIBLE NOW

Kairos is currently providing data to clients and can quickly onboard new ones. Operators do not need to buy equipment or train employees because Kairos handles every aspect of the data collection process. The final report identifies emissions locations for operators’ repair crews to act on.

 

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

Kairos’ ability to combine spectrometer data with simultaneous optical imagery and geo-location data makes it possible to scan production and midstream equipment for methane leaks more frequently and efficiently than ever before, raising the bar on what it means to follow best practices in methane LDAR.
