Rugged LiDAR Scanner for Underground Mining
At a glance:

GeoSight chose Design 1st to help develop an ultra-rugged 2.5 inch diameter watertight LiDAR Scanner that could pass 100m down mining boreholes to examine and log the hole periphery for a variety of reasons.

We were fortunate Design 1st had experience in outdoor products and Geotechnical probes. They were up to speed on the key mechanical challenges in a few hours of discussion and identified plausible low-risk solutions quickly to guide the choice of engine ring direction to focus on.
