Honeywell recently announced that it has acquired Rebellion Photonics, a Houston-based provider of intelligent gas-monitoring solutions designed to maximize safety, operational performance, emissions mitigation and compliance in the oil and gas, petrochemical and power industries.
The acquisition will become part of Honeywell’s Safety and Productivity Solutions business, which provides a range of gas-detection technologies, safety gear, mobility solutions and software to help workers stay safe and productive. Rebellion’s technology will also be deployed through Honeywell’s Performance Materials and Technologies business to help process manufacturing customers improve safety and compliance.
“To rapidly respond to a gas leak and keep their facilities safe, oil and gas, petrochemical and power companies are deploying Rebellion Photonics’ next-generation visual monitoring technology powered by machine learning,” said John Waldron, president and CEO of Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions. “This acquisition complements Honeywell’s strong portfolio of process technologies, automation and gas-detection solutions and accelerates our transformation to a software-industrial company.”
Founded in 2009, Rebellion provides a gas cloud-imaging system that incorporates cameras and hyperspectral imaging technology to pinpoint the source of a leak and measure the volume and concentration of gases. The company also offers real-time fire detection and surveillance monitoring solutions to keep plants and facilities safe.
“Honeywell is an amazing company and a recognized leader in our industry,” said Robert Kester, CEO of Rebellion Photonics. “We are excited to be part of their world-class family. Combining our products with Honeywell’s platform will make this the new industry standard for safety and environmental monitoring globally.”
