Terrestrial Mining, Oil & Gas

Honeybee Robotics Exploration Systems (EX) spins off technologies developed for Space into terrestrial markets to enable new capabilities for remote access, remote sensing, and in-situ monitoring in the mining, and oil and gas sectors. We offer development services that address unmet needs of government agencies and private companies, with systems that meet the challenges of robotic operations using robust, straightforward designs. Our products are designed with the end-user in mind, creating intuitive systems that dramatically increase the safety of our client’s most important resource; their personnel. From smart mines to downhole logging technology, Honeybee is leveraging our experience in extreme environments to provide the technology that can drive the future of the world’s resource industries.

Domain Expertise

Sample Collection, Processing & Analysis

Honeybee Robotics’ geotechnical work focuses on the entire sample acquisition and analysis chain.

Geotechnical Tools

Honeybee Robotics’ uses our knowledge in the mining and oil & gas industries along with our expertise in space system to develop novel systems for solving problems on Earth.

Embedded Sensors and Analyzers

Honeybee Robotics’ embedded sensors, embedded systems and analyzers benefit from our history as a systems integrator: we have extensive experience developing and integrating sensors for use outside the controlled environment of the lab.
Bringing the Subsurface to Light

We provide systems for autonomous drilling, automated sampling, in-situ analysis and identification of ore grades, geotechnical characterization and remote sensing. Our robotic systems provide reliable, efficient methods to boost performance and safety, including automating dangerous tasks, gathering data, remote sensing, and improving operations.

With over 20 years of experience developing sampling and geotechnical systems for planetary exploration, Honeybee Robotics knows how to create robust solutions for any environment.

With in-house expertise in geophysics, geomechanics, geotechnics, and drilling engineering, we strive to be the ideal development partner from early-stage design consulting through support in field deployment.

Honeybee has developed a range of high-performance technologies for mining, oil and gas including intelligent excavation systems, autonomous drills and sampling systems, downhole logging suites, and remote access platforms, all engineered for the harshest environments on Earth.

Our facilities are equipped with unique environment simulation chambers and we regularly field test our systems to ensure they will perform reliably in the most demanding conditions.
