Innovative IONICON PTR-TOF-MS technology deployed on NASA atmospheric research aircraft

Researchers on a mission for NASA use newly developed real-time trace gas analyzer from IONICON to measure air pollution in the atmosphere.

Innovative IONICON PTR-TOF-MS technology deployed on NASA atmospheric research aircraft

What is the quality of the air we breathe? NASA is trying to answer this question using satellite-based Earth observations. By the end of the century, satellite data shall be used for monitoring and predicting air quality, much the same as now for weather forecasting. To understand how air pollutants are distributed within the Earth’s atmosphere, NASA makes use of a new compact proton transfer reaction time-of-flight mass spectrometer (PTR-TOF-MS) which we specially developed for NASA deployment.
