Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. and South Korea's aerospace research body have started to build two air quality sensors that are intended to aid in environmental monitoring operations.

The Tropospheric Emissions: Monitoring of Pollution tool is being built to gather atmospheric pollution data across North America, Mexico City, Canadian tar and oil sands, the Atlantic and Pacific regions, Ball Aerospace said Tuesday.

The Geostationary Environment Monitoring Spectrometer instrument is intended for trans-boundary pollution tracking operations over the Korean peninsula and Asia-Pacific region.

“Both instruments are similar from a technical basis,“ said Rob Strain, Ball Aerospace president.

Researchers will use TEMPO to examine the ozone, nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, formaldehyde, glyoxal and other pollutants for air quality assessment.

The GEMS spectrometer will be designed to produce ozone measurements.

Both instruments are scheduled for delivery in 2017 after critical design reviews in 2015.
