Today, one of the most topical issues related to the quality and safety of life on Earth is the monitoring of air quality in terms of its pollution that is harmful to human health and life. The activities undertaken as part of monitoring carried out include, among others, analysis of the composition of exhaust fumes from emission sources, such as households and industrial entities, in terms of the presence therein of potentially hazardous substances, indirectly in order to detect violations of the applicable environmental standards. In order to conduct this type of analysis, unmanned aerial systems are commonly used, which allow sampling in the immediate vicinity of the emission source. However, the currently functioning solutions do not allow for exhaust fume sampling in a way that allows a mixture for testing to be taken directly from an emission source. This leads to questioning of the reliability of the conducted research, as it is uncertain in terms of the origin of the tested mixture, indicating that the test takes place not at the source of the emission, but in its surroundings. This study proposes a technical solution to sample exhaust fumes directly from the emission source - from the interior of chimney openings.
