Rajant Showcases Fully Mobile, Underground and Open-Pit Mine Autonomous Connectivity for MINExpo with Solution Partners
Robots, Drones, Wearables, Tracking, and Teleremote Control Features of Live Video/Voice Demos
Malvern, PA – September 7, 2021: Rajant Corporation, the provider of Kinetic Mesh® wireless networks, and a vast complement of its technology partners will be attending MINExpo taking place at the Convention Center in Las Vegas. The event runs September 13th to 15th, with Rajant joining with partners in North Hall at Booth 1261-N. Showcasing its collaborative solution for fully mobile, underground mine and open-pit connectivity will be Boston Dynamics, NEVIL, Overwatch Aero, Vorbeck, and xCraft. Live video/voice demonstrations and partner interviews will run each day.
“With the mining industry deploying more autonomous and semi-autonomous equipment and applications every day, they require mission-critical, high bandwidth, secure, machine-to-machine communications systems,” shares Rajant EVP of Sales & Marketing Geoff Smith. “Rajant Kinetic Mesh maintains uninterrupted high throughput and low latency to overcome any interference, above or underground, enabling all autonomous applications as well as trackable systems to support worker safety.”
Deployed in more than 230 of the largest open-pit and underground mines globally, Rajant pioneered fully mobile V2X/M2M and has a heritage of maintaining interoperability with existing BreadCrumb wireless nodes with new product releases. Case in point, this year Rajant introduced its fourth generation BreadCrumbs, known as Peregrine and Hawk, which have had the fastest transition to new sales in the history of the company. This is a testament to the firmware quality and interoperability Rajant has delivered over its history.
Speaking to the field performance of the Rajant Peregrine, Intermountain Mining Technology’s General Manager Michael Gray says, “We recently deployed the new Peregrine radios in a remote control application with the need for high-definition camera systems. While exceeding the customer’s expectations of speed and clarity of the solution, we as a support organization appreciate the ease of configuration and backward compatibility that allows us to quickly and seamlessly integrate the new BreadCrumb into an existing Rajant environment.”

Boston Dynamics – Spot robot for underground inspection
NEVIL – Teleoperation for dozing and heavy equipment
Overwatch Aero – Open-pit drone inspection
Vorbeck – Wearable video/VoIP communication system
