Tata Steel to use AUS drones to keep eye on its mines

Friday, 19 November 2021 | PNS | Jamshedpur

AUS (Aarav Unmanned Systems), the leading end-to-end drone solution start-up has been awarded multiple long-term contracts from various business verticals of Tata Steel to provide advanced drone-based enterprise solutions.

AUS’s drones are expected to help Tata Steel operate their mines more effectively and enhance productivity, besides ensuring higher regulatory fulfillment and safety.

AUS’s drone solution is helping the Projects team of Tata Steel to map the progress of the upcoming Kalinganagar Expansion Plant in Odisha. The integrated steel complex will be the largest in India with a capacity of 8 million tons.

In another contract from the Tata Steel Corporate Audit team, AUS has signed a Two-year rate contract to carry out drone-based physical verification of bulk inventory at all the 23 locations across multiple Tata Steel entities.

For the Natural Resources Division of Tata Steel, AUS will carry out monthly drone surveys of the mining leases of Tata Steel Ltd. and deliver advanced Mine Analysis. Tata Steel Ltd. also signed a contract with AUS to procure three survey-grade Drones for serving internal survey requirements and R&D applications.

AUS and Tata Steel acquired exemptions for drone operations from the Ministry of Civil Aviation for One year across all the 23 mines, plant, and raw material locations. DGCA has approved AUS’s SOP for One year to operate drones at Tata Steel entities. This will ensure that all the operations for Tata Steel will be carried out with 100% regulatory compliance.

On winning the prestigious project, Vipul Singh, Founder, and CEO, AUS, said, “We are thrilled to bag multiple contracts based on our expertise in providing end to end enterprise solutions from our special purpose drone and data analytics platform. For Tata Steel, AUS drone solution will not only enhance monitoring and efficiency but also more sustainable business operations. A combination of world-class technology and a deep understanding of industry requirements has led us to emerge as the only vendor that qualified the operational requirements in an evaluation executed under real-world conditions.”
