Skycatch Survey System Sums Up Aerial Intelligence

High wall scanning and 3D mapping are essential processes in open pit mining operations, enabling geologists and geotechnical engineers to identify rock types, mineral resources, and the stability of the terrain.

But traditional methods of 3D image capture can be expensive, time-consuming, and often increase the potential for harm to surveyors and other on-site personnel, rather than decreasing it.

San Francisco-based startup Skycatch is the first company to ship an end-to-end Real-Time Kinematic (RTK)-based drone survey system
