The RedTail LiDAR System is the optimal solution for mining operations planning, 3D mapping, and monitoring.

 

Mining operations, typically located in remote areas, present significant challenges when it comes to site surveying and activity monitoring. Rough terrain and limited road access make traditional methods of surveying difficult, inefficient, and inaccurate.

Drone LiDAR is quickly becoming the tool of choice to quickly and accurately meet your surveying and monitoring needs. Designed specifically for small unmanned aerial vehicles, the RedTail LiDAR System combines the agility and operability of a drone with a superior point cloud generation tool. Together, they create high resolution, highly accurate, 3D maps of your mine site with no interference to operations or mining activities.

The power of LiDAR imaging is the creation of point clouds that can be rotated, zoomed, and used for accurate distance and volume measurement. Data collected from mining sites can be used to: 1) map the mining area, 2) design and construct the mine plant and infrastructure, 3) determine ore body, pit and void volumes, 4) determine pit, bench, pre-strip and spoil surface volumes, 5) determine stock pile volumes for inventory, and 6) monitor changes to the environment after mining.

The RedTail LiDAR System is the optimal solution for mining operations planning, mapping, and monitoring. With a pulse repetition rate of up to 400,000 pulses per second, even ground-point distribution, superior ranging capability, and optimized scan angles, the RedTail LiDAR System simplifies your mining operation needs while mitigating logistical challenges and dangers.

High-Resolution Point Cloud Flight Specifications: altitude 100’, speed 13mph

The RedTail LiDAR System – incorporating LiDAR technology licensed from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory – is designed to provide high-resolution imaging from multicopters, hybrid, and fixed-wing UAVs.

Infrastructure

RedTail UAV LiDAR Infrastructure Mapping Application

Designed specifically for small unmanned aerial vehicles, the RedTail LiDAR System is a superior point cloud generation tool that can help you survey, map, analyze and monitor all of your infrastructure projects.

​The RedTail LiDAR System quickly creates high resolution point clouds which can be imported directly into mapping, design, and engineering software solutions, allowing you to assess and complete your infrastructure projects more effectively.

​From power lines and pipelines, to railways and roadways, data collected with the RedTail LiDAR System can be used to:

  • create detailed topographic maps
  • perform boundary surveys
  • inspect and monitor conditions of existing infrastructure
  • collect accurate position information of wires, structures, vegetation and terrain
  • improve maintenance planning and scheduling for screws and equipment
  • monitor vegetation and terrain changes around power lines and pipelines
  • monitor environmental conditions before and after an infrastructure development project
  • evaluate how new structures will integrate into an existing landscape

The RedTail LiDAR System is the optimal solution for your infrastructure surveying, mapping, inspecting, analyzing, and monitoring needs.

Construction
