Kespry and DJI have announced a new partnership to offer the DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone as part of the Kespry stockpile measurement solution for mining and aggregates companies.
The solution will deliver Kespry’s autonomous flight and aerial intelligence experience for stockpile measurement using a DJI drone.
Kespry hopes that the addition to its services will enable large aggregates and mining companies to standardise and capture stockpile data across all of its sites in the Kespry platform, while continuing to use the Kespry 2s drones to support mine and site planning operations.
The company says the integration of data captured from a DJI drone is the next innovation in the development of the Kespry industrial sensor platform.
As part of a keynote talk at the DJI AirWorks conference in Dallas, CEO and Chairman at Kespry, George Matthew said: “Drone data is now the standard approach for measuring stockpiles at mine sites, however, millions of dollars are wasted through reconciling inconsistent data from different platforms and the time involved getting that data ready for analysis.”
He added: “Our goal with the addition of the Mavic 2 Pro to our solution is to respond to our customers wishing to use the Kespry aerial intelligence platform across all mine sites to standardize how stockpile data is generated—lowering their costs and helping drive the profitability of every site.”
Jan Gasparic, director of strategic partnerships at DJI, said: “DJI is excited to have Kespry offering the Mavic 2 Pro as part of its aerial intelligence platform portfolio. Pairing the Mavic 2 Pro with Kespry’s industry-leading AI, ML, and analytics capabilities will be of enormous benefit to mining companies that are looking to take advantage of drone technology in a portable and powerful package.”
The Kespry stockpile measurement solution with DJI will be available Q1 2019.
