Commercial Scenarios


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 orebody, pit, and void volumes, 4) determine pit, bench, pre-strip, and spoil surface volumes, 5) determine stockpile 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.
