QUEBEC, CANADA, September 12th, 2012 – Telops, leader in the field of high performance infrared cameras and
hyperspectral imaging systems for the Defense and Security, Environmental, Oil and Gas, and Industrial markets, is pleased to
announce that it has been awarded a contract for a leak detection and identification system by Sinopec Group,
located in Beijing, P.R. China. The contract includes the delivery of a leak detection and identification system based on Telops
Hyper-Cam, the leading FTIR (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy) hyperspectral imaging instrument.
This substantial agreement with the Sinopec Group reinforces Telops’ position as the leading supplier in the hyperspectral
imaging systems market. Indeed, novel leak detection and identification algorithms coupled with Telops Hyper-Cam, will assist
Sinopec’s objective to acquire the capability of real-time detection and identification of chemical leaks or fugitive emissions
of chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Such real-time gas imaging will ensure that chemicals will be detected and
‘‘We are thrilled to assist Sinopec in their efforts of ensuring adequate safety and security of the personnel,
minimizing the impact on the air quality of the environment.’’ says Jean Giroux, C.E.O. at Telops. The Telops leak detection
and identification system will monitor simultaneously several gases including specific aromatic compounds such as benzene,
toluene and xylenes, and smelling compounds such as ammonia and sulphur dioxide. Many more gases will also be monitored.
Telops is a leading supplier of high performance infrared cameras and hyperspectral imaging systems for defence and security,
environmental and industrial applications. Telops also offers R&D services for optical system technology development.
In addition to providing specialized opto-electronic engineering services, Telops has also developed the new HD-IR 1280
High Definition Scientific Infrared Camera, the FAST-IR 1000, the first 1,000 FPS Infrared Camera, the TEL-1000, and the
powerful Hyper-Cam providing information rich data for a wide variety of
