MINING & CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURES

EXPACE has developed specific systems for the Mining Industry and other critical infrastructures, that require high standars of safety and security  conditions.

Through electronic and unmanned technology the company offers innovative solutions to locate and track persons and mobile equipment at underground environments persons and use of drones for:

  • Analysis of atmospheric conditions after blasting operations in open pit mining.
  • Scare gregarious birds at airports to avoid bird strickes during the take off and landing operations
  • SHEPHERD
  • X-COPTER
  • X-TRACKER

Avian Control System for critical infrastructures

SHEPHERD is a UAV which imitates the silhouette of a bird of prey (typically a Goshawk or an Eagle). Its circling, attack and reconnaissance movements cause the birds to leave the areas where they cause problems. Due to their silhouette, the birds never get used to its presence and they always react in the same way: THEY FLEE.

This innovative technology provides new capacities beyond the limits of a radio-controlled airplane. By mixing the latest advances in the technology of composites and avionics, we offer a system which solves an important worldwide need “Bird Strike Avoidance System”.

Drone Technology for Mining Applications Quad-copter RPAS

X-COPTER is an automatic aerial reconnaissance quadcopter, which allows automatic take-off and landing, as well as navigation guided by "waypoints".

The device can fly in almost any weather conditions, under rainy, snowy and windy days and it is a perfect system for mining applications, surveillance, inspection missions, disaster monitoring, search and rescue, for photogrametry, 2D mosaics and topography.

Personnel & Mobile equipment Tracking System for Mining and Underground Environments

X-Tracker can be used to track men and assets positions, emergency management, traffic control, CAS-Collision Avoiding Systems and real time information at control room.

Its main features are: data transmission by any wide band network, real time information at control room, remote web view and management software based on commercial SCADA and easy to configure to adapt to the variations in the mine or tunnel structure.
