BlastMetriX UAV

Aerial 3D imaging


Generation of 3D images from drone imagery for face profiling, blast design and analysis.

Aerial 3D images allow for an optimal acquisition of the bench face and blast site geometry especially of larger sites. With the 3D model the drill pattern is adapted according to the geometric and geologic conditions. Poor blasting results are often caused by inaccuracy of the front row hole placement and inaccurate blast pattern geometry.



3D images from drones are a perfect survey of large blast sites.

  • Comprehensive
