ASC has provided numerous satellite communications solutions to the mining and mineral exploration sector.
We have designed and commissioned point to point satellite communication systems enabling head offices to communicate with remotely located mining operation sites. High speed data, telephony, fax and e-mail have been the most common requirements.
Mining operations are predominantly remote, sometimes hundreds of kilometres from the nearest town. In recent years business pressures have required exploration and mining companies to increase efficiency through use of more advanced IT systems. When geoscientists analyse magnetic resonance imaging in these remote locations to determine whether to drill, the information needs to be confirmed by experts back in head office thousands of kilometres away. VSAT technology can transfer the data back to base, and the data can be interpreted by the experts and in turn direct the drillers in virtually real-time to locations that will bring larger yields.
Complex satellite communications solutions are not the only solution we can offer. Due to the stringent demands of OH&S regulations, portable satellite phones have been used extensively in remote locations to ensure the safety of personnel. ASC has a large range of such solutions on hand and has successfully provided it's services to this industry for many years.
