Central America Mine

A mine in Central America was in need of high resolution aerial imagery so their scientist could identify areas with geological features that indicated gold deposits. Unfortunately, the only imagery available was satelite imagery from the internet. At 1-5 meters per pixel the resolution was far too low to be helpful. There was not an option to have an airplane fly over because of the cost and threat by the drug cartels.

Menet Aero prides itself with being able to be almost anywhere in the world in three days or less. We checked our C-Astral Bramor PPX aboard a commercial airline and went to the mine. In just two flights we were able to map over 1000 acres with 5cm per pixel imagery. Our team processed the imagery and delivered the mine an orthomosaic and a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) which provided the mine the data it needed to locate new gold deposits.
