A journey from Earth to Space, and back!
Airgloss MultiSensing Technology was initially developed for the safety of astronauts on the International Space Station. The first sensing units equipped with the “NADIR” technology were successfully tested in space during the STS-134 NASA Shuttle Mission in 2011.
Aerospace technology

with down to earth applications

NADIR is a highly advanced sensory system for environmental monitoring. Air pollutants are detected in real time by an array of non specific, broad spectrum sensing elements that produce complex multidimensional data, then processed by artificial intelligence algorithms to accurately identify each polluting compound.This technology was used by NASA for real time monitoring of the atmosphere onboard the ISS, placing above all, the safety of astronauts.

Air quality problems are often linked to everyday household activities such as combustion while cooking or solvents and detergents for cleaning. This makes monitoring air quality an essential task to maintain a healthier home.

In most workspaces, exposure to airborne pollutants is very common. Chemicals and particles from in-and outside the building as well as CO2 build up have been found to impact fatigue and decision-making.

Students often find themselves in classrooms with excess heat, humidity and inadequate supplies of fresh air. Awareness on this issue is growing as new research reveals that a better indoor environment improves health and comfort with a noticeably positive impact on learning.

Core technology
A leap from aerospace equipment to an advanced yet affordable consumer solution, achieved by developing a new generation of proprietary sensors, based on advanced MEMS technology. The artificial intelligence engine behind the new Airgloss Core recognizes the unique pattern characterizing each chemical compound, allowing an accurate detection of a broad range of polluting substances. An advanced solution, thought for homes, workspaces, schools and hospitals, to offer healthier indoor environments.
Pattern recognition
Each airborne pollutant can be identified by its unique ‘chemical signature’. A pattern similar to a fingerprint, that is different for every person. An array of sensing elements translates the collected data and an artificial intelligence algorithm then draws a comparison with known patterns present on the database. With this procedure, the embedded artificial intelligence engine can recognize a pattern that distinguishes a substance, enabling a realtime detection of a specific airborne chemical compound. The working principle is similar to that of the human nose, where olfactory receptors send electrical signals to the brain allowing recognition of known smells.
