Where We've Been

Deployments to date have focused on coal and limestone mines.


Florence Coal Mine
The Florence Coal Mine in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania was the site of the first robotic mapping of an abandoned mine.

Mellon Institute Void
The Ferret I's first scan of an area inaccesiable to conventional observation.

Kansas City, Kansas Limestone Mine
Ferret II provides the first income for the subterranean robotics iniative by mapping a proposed landfill site in an abandonded and backfilled limestone mine.

Bruceton Research Mine
Located nearby to CMU, the Bruceton mine has seen the first mapping experiments as well as the longest Groundhog runs.
