do the same task at a fraction of the time and, in many cases,
requires only one operator/pilot. The Kespry drone can remain
airborne for more than 30 minutes per flight and can cover up
to 150 acres at a 400-foot altitude—and in all types of weather,
being able to operate effectively in sustained winds and gusts up
Fully automated, the drone can take off, fly a predetermined
flight path, and land all by itself. Equipped with
a customized industrial camera, the drone can
capture critical geospatial data for detailed
3D modeling more quickly than manned
operations and aids companies in mine
planning, operations, and inspections, all while
improving safety and controlling costs.
Above and right: Drones are ideally suited for surveying and data collection over large areas where a straight-down, bird’s-eye view is required. Below: The Kespry drone is shown coming in for a landing at a mining aggregate stockpile site. Capturing
geospatial date is important when developing detailed 3D models of large areas.
