Inventory Management

Customers use Kespry to autonomously measure stockpile volumes and manage inventory across all their sites because it produces data that is up to 80% more accurate than manual measurement or using other drone solutions. All their survey data is stored in one central cloud application. The data is accessible by the entire team for analysis and can also easily be used in their operational systems.

Mine Planning

With survey-grade accuracy, data from Kespry is used to calculate earthwork quantities and update mine plans with daily topography changes in active areas. These highly-accurate data sets are captured in as little as 30 minutes with no need to use multiple, cumbersome ground control points or to have a surveyor walk the site.

Drone-Based Aerial Intelligence Platform for Coal Mining

With regular flights using the Kespry solution, material removed from a shaft, incline, adit, or opencast mine is easily tracked in the Kespry Cloud.


  • Manage wasterock and ore stockpile inventories

  • Generate cut-and-fill reports for dragline operations

  • Evaluate slope stability on active highwalls

  • Reclamation planning

  • Verify blasting pattern locations

Drone-Based Aerial Intelligence Platform for Frac Sand Mining

Accurate data from the Kespry solution allows frac sand companies to track the entire extraction process from sandstone blasting to sludge stockpile inventory management.


  • Calculate cut and fill volumes

  • Evaluate production output of all materials

  • Manage stockpile inventories

  • Support hydrogeologic studies, pit designs, stockyard designs and slope stability analysis

  • Layout blasting pattern locations

Drone-Based Aerial Intelligence Platform for Gold Mining

The Kespry system allows companies to frequently collect volumetric and topographic data for the entire mine site during ongoing operations.


  • Manage stockpile inventories

  • Calculate stripping volumes

  • Perform safe high-wall inspections
