What is 'Remote Operations'?
Remote Operations is the ability to monitor and control things over vast distances often in harsh or high-risk environments.
It comprises all technology, people and processes required to be connected, remotely.
This might include operating autonomous fleets of trucks on mine sites, to controlling subsea equipment, to managing life support equipment on Mars.
The suite of remote operations technologies enable large-scale operations at a distance with minimal human danger, while providing human insight and oversight.
