Satellite-enabled connectivity for energy, utilities and mining

Inmarsat, AST and Harvest Technology Group have signed an agreement that will give the latter’s customers the ability to remotely monitor assets, coordinate site surveys and conduct maintenance operations using real-time video and audio transmitted via ultra-low-bandwidth satellite communications.

Harvest’s Wearwolf wearable headset and ‘data-anywhere’ solutions can transmit high-quality synchronised video and audio between technicians, engineers and site managers who may be in widely separated locations — even on different continents — via Inmarsat’s Explorer 710 BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network) terminal.

Steven Tompkins, Director of Sector Development at Inmarsat, said that the coronavirus pandemic has meant that “there has never been a greater need for affordable solutions that help organisations collaborate, work together and improve operations, no matter where they are located”.

“This alliance will not only allow for the implementation of existing technology, but will further fuel the innovation for future cutting-edge communication initiatives,” said Harvest’s Managing Director, Paul Guilfoyle.
