Visible Emissions Service
Update! - Virtual Technology is excited to announce DOCS II Software as a Service (SaaS)
The Visible Emissions Service (VES) Business Unit, is focused on helping customers achieve compliance with the myriad of
environmental regulations in a cost effective and economically justifiable manor. The three key factors associated with all
projects underway are:
1. Efficient and effective methods to measure, monitor ,and document emission sources.
The VTLLC VES team targets compliance monitoring practices and data sets where technology infusion can achieve the three foundational
tenants of VES projects.
2. Fully Transparent compliance assurance information.
3. Cost reduction and increased mission throughput within compliance tolerance.
The VTLLC VES team is made up of multiple subject matter experts deployed based
on the specific project needs. Skill Sets include information technologists and
Six Sigma trained business process management experts. The teams are chartered
and staffed on a project basis with direct customer interaction, insuring
delivery of an efficient and effective project team.
VTLLC prides itself in the ability to
provide customers with decision support materials allowing the customer to make
informed and well documented compliance decisions.
Often VTLLC VES projects yield ideas and concepts of specific technology that,
if created, would bring significant benefit to both the regulated and the
regulator markets. When this situation arises the VTLLC technology partners
engage to design, develop, test and implement the specific compliance solution.
Two of these technology based compliance solutions are the Digital Opacity
Compliance System second generation (DOCS II) and the Hand Held Real Time
Climatic Sensor (HHRTCS). DOCS II automates a significant portion of the workload
associated with obtaining compliant opacity observations. As well, DOCS II preserves
the opacity observation record and all of its associated data attributes into a single
digital record that is significantly more retrievable, reproducible and defendable than
classic paper and pencil based "Method 9" opacity observation.
DOCS II Information
The Hand Held Real Time Climatic Sensor project is a research and development effort targeted at miniaturizing the DOCS II solution such
that all measurements can be achieved in a single hand held unit eliminating the need to manage multiple instruments in the field. The
HHRTCS is being designed as an upgrade device to existing DOCS II users. The device will automate and standardize data collection procedures
resulting in an error free collection event with each opacity measurement. HHRTCS Information
