Overview

To solve the problem of surveying inaccessible spaces, we develop aerial robots (drones) customized and ruggedized for the underground mine environments and constricted spaces, that can have hybrid navigation (roll, fly, climb), carry visual, laser scanning (LIDAR), and other payloads, including the Batonomous™, which is an autonomous navigation and mapping payload developed by Inkonova for GPS-denied, light-deprived, constricted zones and other indoor environments. We also provide the BatLite payload, a non-autonomous system capable of point-cloud generation after each flight.

Most of our work is inaccessible zones in underground mines, but we also quote for hydro-power tunnels, water tanks, collapsible or unsupported structures, hulls, industrial containers or boilers, research facilities, natural caves, and other similarly dangerous or unreachable zones where personnel is not allowed to enter or it is not economically viable to send people to inspect the spaces.

Our platforms: the Ranger (here) and the Scout (here), are sensor and payload agnostic, which means that they can be equipped with payloads from Inkonova or other companies.

Our payloads: the Batonomous (here) and the BatLite, are platform agnostic (do not necessarily require a platform and can be mounted on platforms from Inkonova or other companies). They can scan while an operator is walking, mounted on a vehicle, or on any device.
