“In my role as Program Director, Innovation in Barrick Gold's corporate office, I was the Corporate representative on the team evaluating the viability and usefulness of underground (UG) drones. The evaluation included on-site, underground demonstrations by 6 different groups, ranging from a NASA-backed start-up and University of Nevada, Reno research group, to a number of commercial drone companies offering UG drone services.

 

The only group that met, and delivered beyond our expectations was Unmanned Aerial Services (UAS). Their technology, the Elios and Emesent drones, combined with the extensive experience and knowledge of their team, especially Matt MacKinnon, were far superior to the other solutions we looked at and UAS is now working for Barrick on a regular basis.”

“The team at UAS Inc, combined with their real-world training facility, truly made for practical, hands-on training. The scenarios that they put students through gives great opportunity to learn techniques to get the most out of the Elios product. I would highly recommend UAS to anyone who wants the better their skills and be put through real life scenarios within the safety and comfort of the training facility.”
