ArgonST Underground Mining Safety
ArgonST, a Boeing Company, and a global leader in complex sensors and networks was tasked to create an underground mining safety system for one of their premier customers who deliver solutions to the mining industry. They approached Sine-Wave looking for a partner to provide a software platform for real-time communication and connectivity to a proprietary mesh network technology they had developed.
The goal was to produce a safety system to monitor and support underground mining operations; existing systems were either too simple (i.e. phone line) or overly complex and expensive, inhibiting deployment, and providing little-to-no support in event of an accident. Given the dangerous nature of the mining work environment and the strict regulations placed on the industry, the solution would have to comply with Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) regulations. Yet the product needed to allow for simple deployment to truly be a groundbreaking solution – increasing miner safety and changing daily operations for the better.
