Proving ROI through Drone Stockpile Measurement in Mines and Quarries

Event 38 recently completed a case study on the use of drones for mining and quarry applications. In cooperation with a customer operating dozens of quarries, we compared and analyzed the accuracy and resource cost of using the E384 and Drone Data Management System™ with manual measurement to determine stockpile volumes. We found that switching to drone data collection reduced the required man-hours by approximately 60% while producing results within 2% of manual measurement.

E384 Picked as Replacement for Aero and Aero-M

The E384 from Event 38 has been picked as the official replacement for the discontinued Aero and Aero-M product line from 3d Robotics, Inc. Because the aircraft are so similar, Event 38 is able to provide support and most replacement parts for the Aero indefinitely into the future.

The E384 offers several advantages over the Aero including longer flight times, better camera lens protection, and lower overall cost.
