I would like to deploy images to cRIO controllers that are in a remote location, without having to send out a technician on site with a laptop. Can this be done remotely?

Yes, this can be done remotely using the RAD tool that would be running on a local PC (on site). Assuming there is an internet connection in the remote location, and using remote desktop is an option, images can be sent over the network from the remote PC to the local PC using remote desktop. Finally, the local PC would deploy the image to the cRIO systems on site.
