Space-Based Telemedicine Could Benefit Petroleum Industry

The Houston Technology Center and CyberMDx Inc. on Tuesday will introduce a telemedicine system that could benefit petroleum workers offshore or in remote locations. A press conference on the system, based on NASA technology developed for use in space, will be held at Johnson Space Center at 8:15 a.m.

The press conference is part of a Nov. 2 media day in advance of NASA/Johnson Space Center's Inspection 99. Media representatives will be able to visit and in some cases interact with several exhibits showing technologies developed in space that have applications on Earth.

Inspection 99, Nov. 3 to 5, offers industry, business, community and education professionals a chance discover NASA technologies and processes that might be applied to their own activities. The event, designed to reach people outside the aerospace industry, is free, but registration is required.
