The mining industry has been quick to adopt UAS technology in their day to day operations. The sand and aggregate mine industry is well suited to UAS because of the need to gather mine output data at a high temporal frequency. Joseph Hupy of the Menet Aero team was a pioneer in leading efforts to lower overhead costs in the mining industry through his applied research, and has since continued to explore how UAS can serve as a valuable tool within the mining industry. Through this research, and working with the mining industry on addressing their needs, the Geospatial team at Menet Aero has identified serveral key areas where UAS plays a role in mining operations:
