  • Tata Steel and AUS will jointly develop and offer sustainable and end-to-end integrated solutions that will focus on the efficiency, safety, and productivity of open cast mining operations

Tata Steel has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Aarav Unmanned Systems (AUS), a Bengaluru-based startup that sells end-to-end drone solutions for mine management.

 The collaboration is to jointly develop and offer sustainable and end-to-end integrated solutions that will focus on the efficiency, safety and productivity of open cast mining operations.

Tata Steel will also work jointly with AUS to provide exclusive drone-based solutions including mine analytics and geo-technical mapping to Tata Steel group companies across various stocks and mining locations in India.

“We are excited to work with AUS again, this time for a longer duration and with a broader vision of sustainable development. Drone survey enabled digitalisation and other technology will assist in gathering impactful and actionable insights. We see enormous potential in redefining core mining processes such as exploration and mine planning using drone data and adequate analytics," D. B. Sundara Ramam, Vice President, Raw Materials, Tata Steel, said.

“These end-to-end mining solutions are economical, demand fewer on-foot exploration requirements, and improve production, efficiency, and site safety. We also intend to offer our learnings to the rest of the world’s mining companies as a professional solution from our fully owned unit, Tata Steel Industrial Consultancy Limited," he added.
