The Mines & Quarries activity involves moving earth and profitability often depends on the ability of the operational team to optimize this task while reducing costs to a minimum. In order to do that, a prerequisite is to accurately determine the volume of ground to be moved.
M.A.S. UAVs are a fast and cost effective way of undertaking topographical surveys. They reduce human intervention on site, allow operations to continue during surveys, and yield engineering-grade measurements.
For monitoring mines and quarries, volumes of stock piles and detecting anomalies, M.A.S. offers a complete range of specific products such as orthomosaics and digital surface models (DSM) accurate to within one centimetre, contour lines and stock pile identification with corresponding volumes calculated.
Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms are nowadays a valuable source of data for inspection, surveillance, mapping, and 3D modeling issues. As UAVs can be considered as a low-cost alternative to the classical manned aerial photogrammetry, new applications in the short- and close-range domain are introduced.
UAVs are also ideal for aerial mapping services, topography and volumes in mines, mines, landfills and other industrial sites. Is there an inventory, pit, or inventory that should be calculated monthly, quarterly, or annual? The UAV can reduce field time from week to day with less time on the site. Let us build decades of mapping experience for you.
The M.A.S Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology uses unmanned aerial systems (UAS, UAV or RPAS), also known as drones, to develop less invasive and high-resolution methods for the exploration of mineral resources. The applied methods include Structure-from-Motion (SfM) photogrammetry, drone-borne hyperspectral imaging as well as geophysical methods (magnetics and gamma spectroscopy).
