Harlow, UK – 13th September 2019 – Haag-Streit Academy hosted a successful ‘Gold Standard’ Perimetry Course on 10th September 2019. The education event, held at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Leeds, was extremely well-received, with excellent feedback from delegates.

The ‘Gold Standard’ Perimetry Course provided attendees with expert advice and a detailed overview of how to get the most out of their perimeter. The day included lectures and demonstrations delivered by perimetry specialist Prof. Fiona Rowe, Professor in Orthoptics & Health Services at the University of Liverpool.


Professor Rowe covered topics including; ‘System & test set-up’, ‘Static & kinetic examination’, ‘Test evaluation cluster’ and ‘Polar & trend analysis’. Other members of the faculty delivered a series of talks on the practicalities of using the Haag-Streit Octopus 900, the true successor to the Goldmann perimeter. They shared practical advice on how to use the instrument to achieve superior results in both kinetic and static perimetry.


In addition, delegates participated in hands-on sessions and test simulations facilitated by the Haag-Streit Academy team. The one day programme offered 6 CPD points.


Grant Duncan, HS-UK Clinical Training Manager, said, “We are very pleased with the success of the latest ‘Gold Standard’ Perimetry course. The practical workshops always receive excellent feedback and we chose to recruit a smaller group for this course, to ensure delegates could really benefit from the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the state-of-the-art Octopus 900
perimetry system.”


Grant continued, “The smaller group size was a great success and as a result, we will certainly look to host a greater number of smaller, more focussed courses in the future.”

<![CDATA[ Horizon Technologies and the Satellite Applications Catapult to supply satellite data to the UK National Maritime Information Centre ]]> https://pressat.co.uk/releases/horizon-technologies-and-the-satellite-applications-catapult-to-supply-satellite-data-to-the-uk-national-maritime-information-centre-a8c3ea7277816ad20ac0deaf0fa44b4e https://pressat.co.uk/releases/horizon-technologies-and-the-satellite-applications-catapult-to-supply-satellite-data-to-the-uk-national-maritime-information-centre-a8c3ea7277816ad20ac0deaf0fa44b4e Tuesday 10 September, 2019

10th
September 2019 – Horizon Technologies and the Satellite Applications Catapult have signed a memorandum of understanding with the National Maritime Information Centre (NMIC) to supply satellite data from their new IOD-3 AMBER satellite. This data will provide government end-users with crucial maritime information allowing law enforcement agencies to pinpoint and potentially intercept law breakers at sea.


Horizon Technologies already has a proven track record of working with national governments, international and regional organizations, and private industry. This partnership with NMIC will cement Horizon Technologies’ position as a leading supplier of maritime intelligence from satellites.


The satellite forms part of the Satellite Applications Catapult’s In-Orbit Demonstration programme (IOD), funded by Innovate UK, and combines three different types of data, including information from satellite phones, to help track marine vessels.


At present, all ships are fitted with Automatic Identification Signals (AIS), which can be detected by satellites, but AIS can be disabled to avoid detection when undertaking activities such as illegal fishing, piracy, smuggling, and transhipments. This new satellite will reduce the dependency on AIS by using other sources of data to provide location information.


The payload on board IOD-3 AMBER will be able to locate and track vessels worldwide by picking up their electronic emissions using an L-band Satphone detection sensor package derived from the existing FlyingFish™ system. This is combined with an AIS receiver and sensors to detect, geolocate, and classify X/S-band maritime radars, allowing correlation of these signals against the presence of AIS beacons.


John Beckner, CEO of Horizon Technologies said, “We are delighted to have signed this agreement with NMIC to supply our new data set to the UK government. Around the world, governments and law enforcement agencies are dealing with a dramatic increase in crime at sea, and our service will give the UK a new and powerful source of information to detect and take action against this type of illegal activity.”


Stuart Martin, CEO of the Satellite Applications Catapult said, “The IOD-3 AMBER satellite exemplifies what can be achieved by a UK organisation with an innovative idea in a market with significant demand and commercial potential. The partnership with NMIC is a key step, as it secures an important customer for the data supplied by IOD-3, ensuring that Horizon Technologies has a bright future supplying data to governments around the world, all from their base in the UK.”


Phil Ponsford from NMIC said, “The new data that will be provided by IOD-3 AMBER will revolutionise the way we use information from satellites to tackle the full range of maritime security threats to the UK. It has the potential to assist UK agencies in preventing a wide range of illegal activities including smuggling and people trafficking, and I’m sure it will fill a vital information gap in our maritime collection requirement as it comes online.”

UNIDO Headquarters, Vienna, Austria


VIENNA, 19-20 September 2019 – Two United Nations agencies will join an international network of academics, civil society organisations and policymakers to host a workshop on automation, artificial intelligence, and premature de-industrialization.


The interdisciplinary workshop, co-hosted by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, the United Nations University and the Global Inequality Dynamics Research Network will investigate the future of industrial work, including threats posed to developing countries by emerging technologies and ‘premature de-industrialization’.


With sessions focusing on automation and globalization, jobs and development, as well as premature de-industrialization and structural transformation, the event will feature researchers from the Universities of Cambridge, Harvard and Johannesburg, as well as from the International Monetary Fund, the Overseas Development Institute and the World Trade Organization, among many others.


The workshop will open with a keynote speech from Margaret McMillan (Tufts University), followed by five subject-tailored sessions, and a policy panel chaired by Kunal Sen (UNU-WIDER). As such, more than 30 researchers from around the world will tackle the most pressing questions of the Fourth Industrial Revolution:


What is the impact of new technologies and ‘Industry 4.0’ on comparative advantage, industrial work and social and economic inclusiveness in developing countries?What are the distributional and political dynamics of new modes of structural change? And what public policies are plausible and appropriate?How are the manufacturing and service sectors interdependent? Does a strong manufacturing base support the growth of high-tech service industries? Can the growth of high-productivity service industries drive industrialization? What public policies are required to create synergies between manufacturing and service development for inclusive and sustainable growth?What would make traditional forms of structural transformation – industrialization – more viable in the future years? What public policies should be discussed and implemented?


The event will feature a number of practical outputs, including media interviews with high-level researchers and a series of policy briefs, set for release in late 2019. For more details, including the two-day programme, please see the event homepage and follow the Twitter accounts of UNIDO and UNU-MERIT and the ESRC GPID Network.

Dual-Sided Digital A-Frame Engages Customers in Shop-Front Locations


Armagard announces the launch of its battery-powered DigiStopper. This unique range of cable-free, outdoor digital A-frames replaces the traditional sandwich board with portable, high-bright and weatherproof advertising ideal for shop-front locations and customer entrances.


“Businesses benefit from engaging outdoor advertising that makes a great first impression on passers-by and helps them stand out on the high street,” says Mark Neal, MD of Armagard.


The portable outdoor A-frame has two 43” displays, lockable castor wheels and an IP56 rating that allows vendors to advertise effectively in any weather.


“Importantly, the dual-sided design captures the attention of people walking in both directions, so vendors enjoy twice the customer engagement from a single digital signage unit,” says Mark Neal.


Battery-powered units are available with displays of 700 NITS and 1,000 NITS, offering run times of up to 14 hours from an overnight charge. For maximum visibility in direct sunlight, a 2,500 NITS, mains-powered option ensures promotions stay clear in the brightest conditions.


“We wanted to provide businesses with a user-friendly and engaging solution to pavement digital signage,” says Mark Neal. “Cordless operation makes it easy for users to position the A-frame each morning and move it around during the day, ensuring promotions get seen by the greatest number of people.”


As an outdoor-ready solution, the IP56 digital A-board has an innovative environmental controller board that ensures reliable advertising up to 40°C. The sunlight readable screens also feature automatic brightness controls that keep promotions clear and engaging throughout the day.


The first production batch has already been ordered. Armagard’s Germany-based partner, an existing user of DigiStopper units, says: “We’re excited to be the first company to partner with Armagard to bring these unique displays to businesses looking for convenient and effective shop-front advertising.”
