Summary

Uniquely Accurate Remote Volume Calculation and Surveying Tool

Airbus Defence and Space has launched "Stack Insight", a uniquely accurate satellite-based change detection and volume calculation service. This service is specifically developed for mining and civil engineering applications. Stack Insight eliminates much of the cost and all the risk associated with on-site surveying.

The service can be used to remotely calculate extracted volumes, including piles and stacks of mined material. In addition it has the capability to assess changing volumes. "Stack Insight" utilises Airbus Defence and Space’s very high-resolution 50 cm imagery products from its optical Pléiades constellation, which offers high flexibility and up to daily revisit capabilities of any area around the world.

Initial studies show an error-rate of less than 2 percent, proving that "Stack Insight" is a very accurate mine and civil engineering monitoring tool. At the same time it offers the major advantage that no expensive equipment or experts are required on site. The services’ automatically derived results of structural, ground and water body changes or other surface changes are provided in a user-friendly report to match the required frequency of data collection.
