Satellite Enabled Augmented Reality for the Remote Worker – How Mining, Utilities and Oil and Gas Companies are benefiting from increased productivity, safety and convenience

Combining the right hardware, software and connectivity results in a solution that can deliver in multiple scenarios. BGAN services deliver simultaneous voice and broadband data communications from anywhere in the world, through small and lightweight satellite terminals. BGAN uses Inmarsat’s L-band satellite constellation, which offers up to 99.9% availability is used for mission-critical safety applications and governments across the world.

For many years remote workers have had to be experts in the activity they are working on, meaning you need the right person on-site to do the job. Not only did that lead to lots of people needing to live in remote places at a cost and with a number of safety ramifications, it also meant that operations could grind to a halt if a specific expert wasn’t there.

There is however; a better way. In this whitepaper we look at the role satellite-enabled augmented reality is playing in virtually bringing the subject matter expert to the source of the problem cost effectively from anywhere around the world.
