In a previous post we discussed the environmental impact and economic drawbacks of traditional aircraft geophysical surveys, and we ended with the question How do we solve issues, such as Environmental damage, High cost and time wasted, and requirement for Compound Data Analysis.

Today we will present the future of mineral exploration, that is available now, with ROSOR's specialized technology.

With rapidly deployable operational crews that utilize long range Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) capable of flying low to the lower to the ground, and closer to their point of interest, these specialized systems are able to yield high resolution data, even comparable to ground level surveys. Currently, in our case, we focus primarily on magnetic data with a single onboard magnetometer with our specialized remotely piloted aircraft.

In this post we will discuss the main advantages of ROSOR's specialized UAV-based technology for mineral exploration through these main points;

Increased Resolution

With ROSOR's specialized remotely piloted aircraft systems that are lightweight and much more maneuverable, these systems are capable of flying as low as possible to the ground with a minimal buffer flying lower to the target of interest gains the lost potential experienced with traditional aircraft. Then by acquiring high resolution data at nearly ground level quality, this can remove the need for further ground level scans altogether, along with the secondary accompanying post-processing and analysis from geophysicists

Increased Coverage

With ROSOR long-range systems, a large survey area can be completed efficiently with project sizes typically much larger than your AVI RPAS. Our systems can serve us between 1000 to 10,000 inline kilometers in any single project, with fully qualified operational RPAS. Crews ready to roll out at a moment's notice in combination with vertical takeoff and landing systems that don't require full runways for takeoff and landing. Deploying specialized RPAsS is very fast and much more operationally flexible than traditional aircraft.

Minimized Cost

Even more importantly, with only one scan required for the entire investigation, that acquisition is of course much faster. In addition, there's the benefit of less post-processing and analysis, making the overall investigation all that much faster and more cost efficient.

Fully Certified RPAS service

specialized technology also requires specialized pilots and crew members to operate them. Our pilots and field operatives all come fully certified with, at minimum an advanced RPAs operations certificate and follow our standardized operational procedures designed to meet Transport Canada standards. Our pass with long range capabilities and with our operational safety management system in place make beyond visual line of sight operations a possibility. We have a structured method for acquiring special flight operation certificates or SFOCs wherever necessary for larger surveys where they're suitable.

We have discussed the main advantages of ROSOR specialized technology, but how does its downstream impact differ from other aerial geophysics survey options?

How does its product (Geophysical surveys data) compare to other RPAS / Drone-based solutions?

and even to the traditional aircraft geophysical surveys?

That's what we will discuss in our upcoming posts, so stay tuned and watch for it.
