Operation Lindbergh represents the first time technology reduced the time delay over a long distance transmission, thus making truly remote surgery possible.
34) Ultimately, France Telecom's research and development engineering team successfully lessened the time delay of the imaging, which helped make Operation Lindbergh a success.
In addition to the ZEUS[R] machine used in Operation Lindbergh, the other popular remote robotic surgery system is the da Vinci system from Intuitive.
A high-speed optical network helped to speed up data transmission for the gall bladder procedure, given the name Operation Lindbergh after Charles Lindbergh, who made the first flight across the Atlantic in 1927.
