Key benefits

A go-to surveying tool for challenging working conditions

Mining companies are using our LiDAR systems to produce GIS data for DEM and DTM models, to capture geospatial information of the natural surface, the infrastructure of a mine, its planned extension, and to calculate production volumes.


Ensure proper planning and swift decision making

UAV LiDAR systems provide precise elevation data, inventory information, surface/volume calculations, accurate pit models, and contour maps in a fraction of the time compared to traditional methods.

Industries mining installation

Optimized operations

Get the data you need to manage your day-to-day stock, reserve and site arrangements and reduce your total cost of operations.

Industries mining operation

Reduce human and environmental risks

Less surveying personnel in open pit mines and more frequent change detection missions keep everyone safer–people and equipment.

Industries mining security

Rugged & reliable

Compatible with difficult field conditions such as extreme temperatures, humidity, and dust.
