A strong history backed by results in the field.

Since beginning operations in association with the mining arm of Australia's largest R&D organisation, AMT has gone on to play a key role in establishing the widespread use of inertial mining guidance.

Founded in 1996

Along the way we have gained international recognition, delivered many successful installations, serviced and upgraded equipment for key long term customers, and grown into new markets and applications across coal and potash mining.

100s of units delivered

AMT's business and organisational structure has continued to grow to support our expanding customer base, innovative product development program and our ambitious and strategically important research and development goals.

25 global projects


A dedicated team backed by an extensive R&D background, engineering excellence and in-house software expertise.

Led by Managing Director Dr David Reid and Technical Director Tyson Zastrow, AMT’s operations are supported by a team of dedicated staff covering software development, mechatronics, avionics, electrical and mechanical engineering.

David Reid

Founder & Managing Director

Dr David C. Reid was instrumental in government and industry-driven research & development in the 1990s which demonstrated the practical application of inertial navigation technology for underground mining guidance and automation.

This research focus has continued since that time and underpins the commercial success of AMT's products and technology delivery.

David holds a B.Eng (Electrical and Computing)(Hons) and a Ph.D in signal processing theory. He has authored/co-authored more than 70 journal and peer-reviewed publications and is the primary or co-inventor on 10 underground guidance and automation-related international patents.

Tyson Zastrow
