Mine Site Mapping – One Year In
AirGon entered the drone-based mine site services business (primarily aggregate mining) in the summer of 2015. Our primary goal was to test hardware and software as well as establish relationships with the customer base. In this presentation I will review the lessons we have learned after flying many different sites for a wide variety of customers. I will discuss our experience with different types of technology as well as well as the customers’ expectations in terms of product deliverables. I will conclude with some discussions of the various economic models, barriers to entry and some speculation on where this business will eventually go.
