In preparation for the readiness of the Armada ships we have been testing our ability to run remote survey operations.
During a trial period ran in June 2022, we had a vessel mobilised in Sweden collecting hydrographic and geophysical data. The data collected was streamed, via a satellite link, to our Remote Control Centre (RCC) in Southampton, UK.
From the RCC, the operator had direct data feedback and full control of all onboard payload sensors.
These exercises demonstrated the achievement of an important milestone towards the readiness for full remote survey operations.
