The fast development of grid computing environments makes it possible to access geographically distributed remote instruments, experimental equipments, databases, human resources with respect to real-time in grid computing environments. With conventional programming method, it is very difficult to implement real-time models in uncontrolled distributed environments and to support well-defined interfaces from real-time systems to external systems. We propose an easy-to-use TMO-based tele-operation model with less strict real-time constraints in grid environments. Using the proposed model, we design and develop a TMO-based tele-operation system for real industrial applications used for tsunami-detecting instruments.
