Plan resources with increased efficiency, improve safety and reduce instability risks with daily updated data on mining activities.
Mining sites are often located in some of the most remote locations in the world, causing difficulty in successful management of labor, equipment use and project progress overall. Earth Observation (EO) data is the key to getting the most recent and accurate information for efficient operations planning and resource management in mines. Radar imaging satellites can take an image of any location on Earth, at any time, regardless of cloud cover and sunlight.
Remote monitoring and operations management requires timely, consistent, reliable information about every activity that happens within and around the mining sites.
ICEYE offers persistent monitoring solutions for the mining sector to support the planning and management of mineral resources. ICEYE’s radar satellite imaging allows all day, all weather monitoring over the expected mining fields.
Information from ICEYE’s high-resolution SAR satellite imagery updated several times per day or even every hour allow operations to be planned efficiently, enabling precise monitoring of variations in the terrain, and consequently the volume of mineral extracted.
ICEYE continues to grow its current SAR satellite constellation capacity with the objective to provide daily interferometry and coherent change detection anywhere on Earth with a 24h ground track repeat. This breaks existing barriers in collecting SAR imagery stacks for InSAR analysis, bringing the collection time down with every new satellite in the ICEYE constellation. Since 2018, ICEYE has launched commercially available SAR satellites, and the company will continue to increase the size of the commercial constellation every year.
