Airware, the leading provider of end-to-end solutions that turn aerial data into actionable business intelligence, announced today the launch of enhancements to the Airware Mining and Quarrying solution. Airware’s solution is built on the secure and scalable cloud-based Airware platform. This solution leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence to help mines and quarries digitize their business and improve operations with visualization, collaboration, analysis and reporting on drone-captured data.

Yvonne Wassenaar, CEO of Airware stated, “Airware continues to partner with industry leaders to deliver value-based innovation that drives operational efficiency, lower costs and improved safety. Our enterprise platform and advanced Mining and Quarrying solution has delivered proven competitive advantage to our customers.”

This latest release of the Airware Mining and Quarrying solution provides enhanced capabilities for teams to collaborate in real-time to manage, process, view and analyze site data. The Airware solution includes:

Flexible Data Collection

  • Multi-rotor RTK Support
    Airware will support the new DJI M210-RTK industrial quality drone. This new aircraft will
    provide Airware customers with a robust and readily available solution for faster and
    more accurate data acquisition without the need to place ground control points.
  • Additional DJI Drone Support
    Airware is also announcing support for the new DJI M200 industrial quality drone along
    with continued support for the DJI P4P, a durable and low cost drone. Airware’s
    expansion of drone support gives customers the ability to choose the best drone for their
    business purpose and budget.

Enterprise Security, Performance, and Collaboration

  • Enhanced Enterprise Security
    Airware is focused on providing the highest level of enterprise security. The company
    supports SAML 2.0 SSO and its information security program is aligned to ISO 27001.
    All data is encrypted both in transit and at rest to optimize security.
  • Fast Data Upload
    Airware cloud enhancements include increased upload speed, improved ease of use,
    rapid processing times and status tracking.
  • Improved Team Collaboration
    Team efficiency is enhanced with improved geo-referenced site information including
    ground-level photos and annotation management.

New Advanced Mining and Quarrying features

  • Advanced Volumetrics
    Airware is now the only company to offer eight advanced volumetric calculations to
    provide the mining and quarrying industries the most accurate stockpile calculations –
    even in the most complex site environments.
  • Stockpile Calculation and Reporting Options
    Airware provides customers with options for stockpile reporting. Users can measure
    stockpiles in real-time and generate their own reports. Airware also offers an automated
    service with stockpile inventory data delivered as finished reports and files that can be
    imported into financial systems.
  • Local Coordinates
    Airware supports the use of site-specific local coordinates to save time and streamline
    workflows by allowing customers to easily overlay drone data with other geospatial data.
    Users can leverage data throughout the entire operational life cycle using popular
    formats from Trimble and Esri.

Airware will be showcasing its Advanced Analytics Platform March 6-8th at the AGG1 conference in Houston in booth #1021​.
