RF…Can at Times Stand for Relief & Fortitude.

Comments off 20 Views0

Cubic Mission Solutions has now deployed its GATR satellite antennas and personnel to support hurricane disaster recovery operations in the US. Working with several of its global disaster relief customers, GATR antennas were deployed on the islands of St. John and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; Antigua Barbuda and St. Martin. On the island of St. John, the GATR antenna is providing communications, networking and high-bandwidth internet connectivity via satellite for a local clinic, hospital and pharmacy to ensure medications are refilled for patients on and off the island.

With many hurricane victims displaced and separated from their homes and families, communication lines remain uncertain in the US. Using its GATR antennas, Cubic has been able to help individuals stay connected to family and friends as well as assist the daily operations of medical personnel and first responders.

The GATR 2.4 meter antenna is an inflatable, ultra-portable satellite antenna that can be packed and transported in two cases weighing less than 100 pounds each or less for smaller antennas. It has the capability to provide high-bandwidth communications in extreme environments and can withstand winds up to 75 mph. The antenna’s portability, reliability and ease of setup make it a unique satellite communications (SATCOM) solution for the most critical military, government and first responder missions.

Partnering with customers from military to nongovernmental organizations and international humanitarian aid groups, GATR antennas and support personnel have been deployed in response to natural disasters since 2005 when Hurricane Katrina struck the Gulf Coast. Additionally, GATR antennas were utilized earlier this month to aid Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts in Houston, Texas.

CYBERSECURITY MISTAKES

Comments off 304 Views1

SECURE YOUR NETWORK: FINGERPRINT. ANALYZE. MITIGATE.

Coaxicom is a proud supplier of RF/Microwave components to Next Computing based in Nashua, New Hampshire for over 3-years.

Next Computing focuses on two core areas of crucial need: Cyber Security and Digital Creation, and the article below authored by Next Computing and Gartner, Inc. is definitely an “eye-opener” and worth a thorough read.

Cyber theft is the fastest growing crime in the United States.

The cybersecurity community and major media have largely concurred on the prediction that cyber crime damages will cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021. Cybersecurity spending is expected to exceed $1 trillion by 2021.

Global ransomware damage costs are predicted to exceed $5 billion by the end of 2017, a 15X increase in the past two years. Healthcare organizations are the No. 1 cyber-attacked industry with ransomware attacks expected to quadruple by 2020. This translates to human attacks reaching 4 billion people by 2020. As the world goes digital, humans have moved ahead of machines as the top target for cyber criminals. Microsoft estimates that by 2020, 4 billion people will be online—twice the number that are online now. Today’s hackers smell blood, not silicon.

Cyber crime will more than triple the number of unfilled cybersecurity jobs, estimated to reach 3.5 million by 2021. Every IT worker, every technology worker, must be involved with protecting and defending applications, data, devices, infrastructure and people. There is a massive cybersecurity workforce shortage, resulting in an unemployment rate of zero within the industry.

More than a quarter of data breach incidents in 2016 took at least one month for companies to discover, and 1 in 10 went unnoticed for at least a year. These results are compiled from the latest report on data breaches from Verizon’s security research division, which analyzed 1,935 breach incidents reported by 65 organizations. According to the report, nearly two-thirds of the breaches that were discovered in days or less were associated with incidents that are easy to catch, like physical theft or administrative accidents. Breaches that took months or longer to detect largely fell into categories like “cyber-espionage,” “point-of-sale intrusions,” and “privilege misuse.”

Why the big increases in the share of incidents discovered at both the long and the short end of the timescale? The facts are most major industry player tools are expensive and offered as proprietary, single or incomplete solution security tools. They do not mix with other cybersecurity tools effectively enough for a complete security solution. Many of these tools are also very complex and labor intensive to use. They often lack true lossless forensics recovery analysis capabilities in the event of a breach. (content credit and for more information: nextcomputing.com)

Stake Your Own Claim on Mars With Your Name!

Comments off 301 Views1

When it lands on Mars in November of 2018, NASA’s InSight lander will be carrying several science instruments — along with hundreds of thousands of names from members of the public.

In 2015, nearly 827,000 people signed up to add their names to a silicon microchip onboard the robotic spacecraft. NASA is now adding a second microchip, giving the public another chance to send their names to Mars.

New submissions will be accepted through Nov. 1, 2017, at the following link: https://mars.nasa.gov/syn/insight

“Mars continues to excite space enthusiasts of all ages,” said Bruce Banerdt, the InSight mission’s principal investigator at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. “This opportunity lets them become a part of the spacecraft that will study the inside of the Red Planet.”

This fly-your-name opportunity comes with “frequent flier” points reflecting an individual’s personal participation in NASA’s exploration of Mars. These points span multiple missions and multiple decades. Participants who sent their names on the previous InSight opportunity in 2015 can download a “boarding pass” and see their “frequent flier” miles.

As part of this frequent flier program, a chip carrying the names of 1.38 million people also flew aboard the first flight of NASA’s Orion spacecraft in 2014. NASA is building Orion to carry astronauts to deep space destinations that will enable future missions to Mars.

An example of a “boarding pass” that members of the public can download by participating in NASA’s Frequent Fliers program. can accumulate “miles” on their boarding pass.

After InSight, the next opportunity to earn frequent flier points will be NASA’s Exploration Mission-1, the first flight bringing together the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft to travel thousands of miles beyond the Moon in preparation for human missions to Mars and beyond.

InSight will be the first mission to explore Mars’ deep interior. The spacecraft will set down a seismometer to detect marsquakes and meteor strikes, using the seismic energy of these phenomena to study material far below the Martian surface. It also will deploy a self-hammering heat probe that will burrow deeper into the ground than any previous device on the Red Planet. These and other InSight investigations will improve our understanding about the formation and evolution of all rocky planets, including Earth.

InSight is scheduled to launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, in May of 2018. For more information on InSight, visit:https://nasa.gov/insight

Nobel Prize in Physics 2017: And the winner goes to Einstein?

Comments off 125 Views1

The winners actually goes to: Rainer Weiss, Barry C. Barish, Kip S. Thorne & Einstein!

Gravitational waves finally captured!

On 14 September 2015, the universe’s gravitational waves were observed for the very first time. The waves, which were predicted by Albert Einstein a hundred years ago, came from a collision between two black holes. It took 1.3 billion years for the waves to arrive at the LIGO detector in the USA.

The signal was extremely weak when it reached Earth, but is already promising a revolution in astrophysics. Gravitational waves are an entirely new way of observing the most violent events in space and testing the limits of our knowledge.

LIGO, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, is a collaborative project with over one thousand researchers from more than twenty countries. Together, they have realised a vision that is almost fifty years old. The 2017 Nobel Laureates have, with their enthusiasm and determination, each been invaluable to the success of LIGO. Pioneers Rainer Weiss and Kip S. Thorne, together with Barry C. Barish, the scientist and leader who brought the project to completion, ensured that four decades of effort led to gravitational waves finally being observed.

In the mid-1970s, Rainer Weiss had already analysed possible sources of background noise that would disturb measurements, and had also designed a detector, a laser-based interferometer, which would overcome this noise. Early on, both Kip Thorne and Rainer Weiss were firmly convinced that gravitational waves could be detected and bring about a revolution in our knowledge of the universe.

Gravitational waves spread at the speed of light, filling the universe, as Albert Einstein described in his general theory of relativity. They are always created when a mass accelerates, like when an ice-skater pirouettes or a pair of black holes rotate around each other. Einstein was convinced it would never be possible to measure them. The LIGO project’s achievement was using a pair of gigantic laser interferometers to measure a change thousands of times smaller than an atomic nucleus, as the gravitational wave passed the Earth.

So far all sorts of electromagnetic radiation and particles, such as cosmic rays or neutrinos, have been used to explore the universe. However, gravitational waves are direct testimony to disruptions in spacetime itself. This is something completely new and different, opening up unseen worlds. A wealth of discoveries awaits those who succeed in capturing the waves and interpreting their message. (content credit: www.nobelprize.org, 10/3/2017 )

With Natural Disasters on the Rise…Research Seeks to Improve Electrical Systems Against Weather Outages.

Comments off 87 Views1

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Determining how to improve the resilience of power grid structures in the face of outages from severe weather events is the focus of a multidisciplinary study by Purdue professors.

The project, “Towards a Resilient Grid: An Investment Prioritization Decision Framework that Integrates the Growing Risks of Severe Weather-Induced Outages,” received a $468,851 grant from the National Science Foundation.

The project team is led by Makarand Hastak, head of construction engineering and management and professor in the Lyles School of Civil Engineering; Roshanak Nateghi, an assistant professor in the School of Industrial Engineering and in Environmental and Ecological Engineering; and Wallace E. Tyner, a professor in agricultural economics. Sayanti Mukherjee, a recent PhD graduate, will be working on the project as a postdoctoral research assistant.

It is estimated that electrical outages have cost the U.S. economy $20-$55 billion annually from 2003-12. In Florida, emergency officials have indicated more than 3.7 million customers — or more than 36 percent — were without power following Hurricane Irma.

Current methods, however, undervalue the link between outages and the costs to society and the economy, despite severe weather outages that result in multi-billion dollar damages affecting hundreds of millions of people each year.

“As we have seen from the recent events due to hurricanes Harvey and Irma, that resilience of power grid infrastructure is very important from a social and economic perspective,” Hastak said. “Even after investing millions of dollars in upgrading their grid, Florida Power and Light is still facing prolonged power outages which might even take weeks to recover. We want to understand what investment decisions are necessary to further mitigate those risks.”

The project seeks to develop algorithm-based new risk assessment models that can better link outages and the resulting societal costs and deal with the complex uncertainties of weather-related extreme events.

Models will estimate the compounding economic losses and optimization techniques will determine the best strategies for improving power grid structures.

Tyner said the project will examine mainly regional case studies and is intended to bring about an understanding of the system as well as improvements.

“The problem is that it is difficult for utilities to be reimbursed for their expenditures on increasing the grid reliability,” he said. “Utility commissions want to pay for electricity generation and distribution, and they have yet to appreciate the importance of expenditures on reliability.”

The project will integrate expertise from infrastructure management, energy infrastructure performance analysis, risk analysis, sustainability and resilience assessment, energy economics and policy analysis.  (content credit: Writer: Brian L.
