Autonomous operations for remote mining
American Mine Services reports that there are nearly 13,000 active mines in the US, valuing at $61 billion. However, ensuring the operational efficiency of these mines through traditional forms of connectivity can be a challenge. There are many limitations for data transmission in the mining industry, including the limited accessibility of underground areas and the weak coverage of traditional radio waves.
Satellite communication provides a highly-available communication solution – critical for the operational success of mining across America.
