Hayden Data Systems specializes in awareness.
We give oil and gas companies the ability to monitor the health of their field assets and surrounding environments from any location. The technology behind our awareness platform combines sensor data with alerts, deep analytics, and the ability to predict failures. Even in the most remote locations.
Users get near real-time monitoring of the structural, environmental, and operational conditions that affect their infrastructure.
Our sensors can monitor pad sites, wellheads, pump stations, and pipelines. Even in areas without telecommunications network coverage or local power.
Sensor measurements include:
Weather and ambient conditions
Wind speed and direction
Smoke and wildfire
Standard and infrared camera
Snapshots at regular intervals or on-demand
Site and property line monitoring Hayden Data smart sensors continuously monitor ambient conditions at remote sites. They’re on the lookout for smoke from nearby fires, gas leaks, and heavy rainfall. Onboard cameras are keeping an eye on things, too.
Structural health and seismic monitoring Our sensor array includes accelerometers to measure movement and vibration. They provide early threat detection for structural deterioration and earthquake activity.
Pipeline monitoring Sensors deployed along pipeline routes monitor structural integrity and detect leaks, fire, and smoke.
Now, even the most remote sites can be carefully monitored from anywhere.
Our Solution: The Hayden Data Awareness Platform
It delivers unparalleled insights from the field, using proprietary sensors, revolutionary communication technologies, and a data visualization interface. As the name implies, this platform is aware. Users can make informed, intelligent, and effective decisions. They’re able to target inspections and plan for preventive maintenance before infrastructure assets fail.
Hayden Data sensors continuously measure asset health and environmental conditions, even in remote locations. Data sources may include:
3rd-party sensor networks and data feeds
Data from our customers and partners
The data is raw and ingestible into existing systems or accessible through our interactive user interface. The Hayden Data Awareness Platform can aggregate it into four areas:
Maintenance: Asset health, enabling condition-based maintenance, predictive monitoring using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
Environmental: Measurement of current weather conditions, environmental anomalies and hazards, Dynamic Line Rating, and predicted impact on assets.
Operational: Asset status, performance, and confidence monitoring.
Situational Awareness Stream: Public hazard awareness, liability compliance, public and municipal safety.
Our instruments measure a wide variety of conditions and situations. Explore them below:
Early-warning wildfire/bushfire detection
Utility pole fire detection
CO and CO2
Methane and propane
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
Speed and direction
Volume per hour
UV-A and UV-B
Microphone (for harmonics)
The heart of our sensor system is a collection of highly-accurate instruments. They’re housed in a hardened enclosure that can be mounted on power poles, transmission towers, gas wellhead sites and pipelines, bridges, buildings, or any other structure.

Communications: Using the Meshnet
Sending data to and from remote locations is always a challenge. But we discovered the answer. Our sensor systems communicate with each other on a bi-and-multi-directional, self-healing sub-1 GHz “meshed” network. Meshnets have a higher level of redundancy than “hub-spoke” networks, making them perfect for collecting sensor data.
They also work in areas where cellular and other telecommunications options don’t exist.
Data passes along a network of nodes (such as along a power line) until it reaches a gateway unit within cellular coverage. Then it’s uploaded to user visualization platforms. Satellite gateways allow for additional redundancy or system deployment in areas where even a cellular gateway unit isn’t an option.
Our technology currently supports 500 sensor nodes per gateway. Ongoing development will soon enable each gateway to support up to 2,000 sensor devices.
Sensor data can be ingested into existing user systems or the Hayden Data Awareness Platform. It organizes, refines, and analyzes the data, then provides actionable reports. Then it converts it into a visualization-based UI format. Users can see status summaries and alerts by asset and geographic area. They can sort and filter to drill down on specific assets or areas of interest.
Data flows into the dashboard in near-real-time. Cameras display continuously-updated visual information. Users gain insights in seconds and can make instant decisions. Dashboards can be viewed across multiple devices, including smart phones.
Decisions become even more intelligent with historical data and artificial intelligence. Historical data is taking on new value as it’s reprocessed. We’re finding “new” old information in there. Our platform analytics system is using it to measure trends and model scenarios.
Using artificial intelligence, it can compare current or recent measurements to historical data from sensors at other locations. This creates the ability to have predictive maintenance and response. Users have more perception and comprehension. They’re able to make assessments, anticipate problems, and take preemptive action before failures or incidents occur.
