Mining Industry: Monitoring Sensors and Other Fixed Assets with Satellite

White Paper

Rail Operations

Satellite helps minimize human intervention, improve responsiveness, and increase efficiency in the mine.

Are you monitoring your mining equipment?

Besides managing trucks and heavy equipment, satellite is also the ideal communication link for monitoring sensors and controlling fixed assets that are located in the outskirts of mining operations. Satellite is available anywhere and comes with the additional benefit of providing a low cost, quick and easy to install communication link without requiring major capital investment.

About this white paper:

In this white paper, learn how satellite technology can be used to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs in three fixed applications:

  • monitor water ingress and control dewatering pumps to ensure continuous mine operation;
  • measure dust levels to minimize hazards and reduce dust suppression costs;
  • and remotely monitor weather stations to ensure timely responsiveness to weather changes.
