Mining & Mineral Mapping

Mining & Mineral Mapping

In association with AIRBUS DEFENCE AND SPACE, Micronet Solutions brings a unique proposition of mine monitoring applications to the Indian market. Mine monitoring is highly effective in controlling illegal mining and increasing of the departments revenues . As per the need of Mines Ministry for a pan-India surveillance system for mine monitoring , Airbus Defence and Space , France have developed an automated mine monitoring surveillance system providing the change detection and volumetric change calculations for any mine across India .

The Mine Monitoring surveillance system uses very high resolution 50 cm satellite imageries from twin constellation Pleaides 1A and 1B . The Mine Monitoring surveillance system delivers change detection and volumetric change reports directly as a service. So , the department does not have to do buy any satellite imagery or do the processing of the stereo data for generating the required change detection and volumetric calculation reports. This is a completely automated process designed by Airbus Defence and Space and delivers desired results.A New and Revolutionary Remote Volume Calculation and Surveying Tool.

Stack Insight has been specifically created to make your volume calculations easier, cheaper and more accurate. It is the most advanced, satellite-based change detection and volume calculation service on the market, eliminating much of the cost and all the risk associated with ground surveying. Specific tests were performed to compare the accuracy of LIDAR against Stack Insight for volume calculation and the worst error-rate was less than 2%, Stack Insight is thus a highly accurate monitoring tool – especially when compared with traditional ground and land surveying techniques.

Specifically developed for mining and civil engineering applications, the service can be used to remotely calculate extracted volumes, including piles and stacks of mined material. In addition, changing volumes can be assessed. Stack Insight utilises Airbus Defence and Space’s very high-resolution 50cm imagery products from its optical Pléiades constellation, which offers high flexibility and up to daily revisit capabilities of any area around the World.

Stack Insight’s automatically derived results of structural, ground and water body changes or other surface changes are provided in a user-friendly report to match the required frequency of data collection.
