Global Deformation System
The Descartes Labs platform helps mining and metals companies mitigate ground stability risks with weather-independent InSAR models and methodologies that implement the latest deformation research at scale. A phased approach then combines satellite and ground-level techniques to detect and verify physical movement in remote locations globally. Customers can use our technology to:
- Detect ground surface movement on the scale of millimeters
- Close risk gaps that are not covered by complementary monitoring technologies
- Test, validate, automate, and deliver deformation insights for any geotechnical target of interest on the planet
- Align with the monitoring requirements of The Global Industry Standard on Tailings Management
Monitor ground stability across mine infrastructure
Operating large and geographically dispersed physical assets presents significant challenges for global mining and metals companies. Diverse assets with aging infrastructure, including unstable pit walls and insecure tailings dams, can quickly generate “tail-risk” that has the potential to change the economics of modern-day materials supply chains.
With the world's first automated, global subsidence and deformation monitoring system, we help mining and metals companies mitigate ground stability risks. Our high-frequency and weather-independent InSAR models and methodologies implement the latest deformation research at scale. A phased approach then combines satellite and ground-level techniques to detect and verify physical movement in remote locations globally.
