The DMT Group

Mining – This is precisely where DMT’s roots lie, having been providing comprehensive consulting for the mining industry for over 150 years. Our impressive history is the reason that our range of services is unsurpassed in its breadth and specialisation the world over, and today, not only mine operators, but also international investors and research & development institutions rely on DMT’s expertise.

The DMT group, which includes the former IMC group, has a long history of working in the mining industry. Operating under the brand “DMT” since 1990, we actually have over 100 years of experience in operational mining and roots dating back over 250 years, to the foundation of the first mining safety organisation in Germany.

In 1903 the first of DMT’s many expert bodies was founded. Today we benefit from decades of research and in-house technological development from a number of in-house expert bodies and testing centers, recognised by mining authorities. You, as our client, benefit from their independent assessments and advice.

Through the establishment and acquisition of various international mining companies, including the former IMC group, DMT’s international expertise has grown significantly over the past 25 years in line with our portfolio. Today, as a member of TÜV NORD Group, Germany’s leading technology service provider, we are renowned for innovative solutions and individualised consulting and assistance tailored specifically to our clients’ needs.

Case Studies - Pilot 3D

This 3-in-1 system for precise positioning, navigation and 3D-documentation was developed in collaboration with the German Aerospace Centre. The innovative technology, which was originally developed for the Mars missions, is now being applied in the mining, shipbuilding and civil engineering industries, as well as forestry and seismics.

DMT Pilot3D is a non-satellite based system which offers optimal solutions for enclosed environments such as underground facilities, ship hulls and buildings, where GNSS navigation is not possible. This mobile handheld device is extremely small and light, making it ideal for confined or hard-to-reach spaces.


    • Multi-sensor technology
    • Integrated inertial measurement unit and stereographic cameras
    • Operation even in very dark areas
    • Precise and real time egomotion
      High quality 3D point cloud documentation
    • High resolution colour imaging


    • Indoor route tracking
    • Georeferenced 3D documentation
    • Infrastructure and maritime inspection

The easy handling and speed of the system bring huge time saving benefits compared to conventional geo-measuring devices.
