Innovative mining software and machine control solutions

Our Carlson Mining platform is a technically advanced mining software for design and efficient operation of mines worldwide.

Our machine control solutions enable clients to reduce idle time and increase production rates, which minimises costs while enhancing efficiency.

We are the largest provider of mine software for coal mines in the US and are becoming internationally recognised. Carlson Mining 2018 modules are compatible with AutoCAD®, versions 2010 to current, and are available with IntelliCAD® 8.3 built-in.

Laser scanning systems for the mining industry

Carlson has always had a traditional focus on the mining industry with software, hardware and machine control solutions.

However, with the recent acquisition of the mining, mapping and module product lines from Renishaw in 2017, we now have the ability to provide laser systems, which enhance our product portfolio and allow us to provide more comprehensive solutions to our users.

With the new in-house capabilities, Carlson Software can also now work in other industries, including marine hydrographic, military, highways traffic management, altimetry and security.
