Gain insight into your underground operation

We provide accurate real-time GPS-like positioning for underground mines that gives you the capability to continuously perceive the locations and movements of your machines and people, enabling you to introduce new applications that increase the safety, productivity, and efficiency of underground operations.

Our solution is a system of software and hardware developed and engineered specifically for underground tunnel environments, and technologies selected for robust and reliable positioning of essential assets for production-critical applications.

We are on a quest to bring the benefits of

GPS to underground mines

Widefind WISPR™

Widefind WISPR™ is our positioning solution for underground mines, a system of hardware and software orchestrated together to provide highly accurate real-time position data from underground tunnel environments.

Our solution consists of three components: a positioning network for the mine, positioning tags for machines and people, and a positioning and management service.

Raw data is generated when WISPR Personnel Tags and WISPR Vehicle Tags communicate with WISPR Anchor Cables, which constitute the active component of the positioning network.

The raw data is transferred via WISPR Gateways and the communications infrastructure of the mine to the WISPR Server, which can be deployed either on-premises or in the cloud.

On the WISPR Server, raw data is processed and accurate position data generated. The data is made available via REST and streaming APIs, which ensure easy integration with your existing systems and applications.
