Interview with Sponsor & Exhibitor Mynaric AG released for the 4th Annual UAV Technology Conference

UAV Technology Conference 2019

UAV Technology Conference 2019

SMi reports: A Q+A has been released with sponsor and exhibitor Mynaric AG, who will also be presenting at the UAV Technology conference in London

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM, June 17, 2019 / — The 4th annual conference on UAV Technology, taking place on the 30th September- 1st October 2019 in London, not only invites the programme managers, requirement planners in the land, air, and maritime domains, but also operational users and industry technical experts to share their knowledge and experiences in the enhancement of UAV and C-UAS technologies at this international symposium.

With the upcoming UAV Technology conference 2019 on the horizon, SMi Group caught up with Mr Hubertus Von Janecek, Member of the Executive Board, Mynaric AG to discuss current developments, priorities and the upcoming event.
Snapshot of Mynaric’s interview:

Q: What is Mynaric doing to enhance UAV Technology?

A: "UAVs exist to collect and send data. They enable operators to monitor activity over defined areas and are integral to defense plans and to the protection of key infrastructure and personnel.

We are enhancing UAV technology by extending the workbench of existing defence systems.

The current Achilles Heel for all UAV systems is communication. If you look at developments in theatres such as Afghanistan and the Ukraine you can see how catastrophic this Achilles Heel is proving. The OSCE’s Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine reports regularly on the effect that jamming is having an ‘operational impact’ of the organization’s UAVs. In some cases leading to actual, physical losses.

Laser communication eradicates this inherent weakness simply through its technological working principle. Our new airborne lasercom terminal uses beams with very small beam divergences which are physically inaccessible to radio frequency technologies.

In addition to preventing the loss of communication and the loss of platforms due to jamming, we are also enabling reliable real-time data transfer and addressing the challenge of increased data collection. Laser communication allows for data rates far in excess of those achieved by RF."

Q: What are the future challenges for UAS/UAV technology in supporting military operations?

A: "The major challenges remain focused on EW, such as jamming, and counter-UAV capabilities. The challenges for UAV technology are (1) improvements in data collection and data transmission between drones and to the ground; and, (2) changes in the design and ability of the airframe itself. In the field, data must be secure and free from jamming and tapping. It needs to be delivered to control and command in real-time to inform operational decision-making and analysis ‘in the moment’. There will also be a growing desire for networks of UAVs over various theaters communicating with each other in the stratosphere to widen UAVs’ scope and application. Drones will also need to transform to be able to survive and function in increasingly high threat environments. They will need to become stealthier and become much more autonomous.

Mynaric believes it has the right connectivity product to solve the first piece of this UAV technology challenge."
The full interview is available on the event website, as well as the two day agenda and speaker line up at

Delegates will also hear an exclusive briefing on day one of the conference from Mr Hubertus Von Janecek presenting an exclusive briefing on ‘Laser communication — an alternative to RF communication in Disaster and Security Scenarios’. His presentation will cover:

• Analysis between laser communication and RF communication
• Information transfer between flying platforms
• Laser communication beams, data security & resistance to tapping
• Laser communication terminals & ground stations – size, weight and power
• Frequency coordination and regulation

Those who register by the 28th June at can secure a £200 discount.

MONTGOMERY , ALABAMA, USA, June 14, 2019 / — According to the Alabama US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate, "We do not want one US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in Alabama or anywhere in the country calling for a free generic book about mesothelioma when they can be talking to one of the nation's foremost lawyers about mesothelioma compensation.

Nothing is more critical in an exhibition project, than making the right choice of exhibition stand supplier. Our guide will help you make this vital decision.

As in every industry, there are people who talk a good game but don’t deliver!”

— Stephan Murtagh

POOLE, DORSET, UNITED KINGDOM, June 13, 2019 / — Choosing the right Exhibition Stand Supplier

Stephan Murtagh – Guest Contributor to Quadrant2Design

When I meet with clients about an exhibition they’re considering attending, I will always ask them what other shows they are doing.

Often they will tell me ”just this one – and more if this one goes well”. Sometimes they will say they have two, three or more shows booked over the coming year.

The reason I need to know is because the days of ‘build and burn’ (building a stand for just one event) is dead and buried.

Why? Because it’s a shocking waste of money and shreds an exhibiting company’s sustainability credentials.

Clients are becoming more aware of the economic and environmental impact of this approach, and are looking for alternatives, whilst naturally wishing to still create beautiful exhibition stands.

For me, choosing an exhibition contractor comes down to 3 simple, but vital issues: Credibility, Modularity and Sustainability.


I have worked with many contractors over the past 25 years and one of the first things I always ask them is “please show me work that you’ve done”. As in every industry, there are people who talk a good game but don’t deliver!

Another area of huge concern is the ‘in-house principle’. Too many exhibition contractors are effectively brokers, who sub-contract out important parts of an exhibition stand design and build project.

This practice of ‘subbing-out’ is a real problem; you could effectively be ‘in the dark’ as to who is actually designing, printing, manufacturing and building your exhibition stand.

Unfortunately this ‘sub-contracting’ is all too common in the exhibition industry, and is to be avoided at all costs when choosing a supplier.

So don’t be afraid to investigate, ask questions and find out more about the ‘in-house capability’ of the contractor.

Questioning that teases-out valuable information.

1. What companies have they worked for previously? Ask to see examples of previous exhibition stands they’ve designed and installed.
2. Is every key stage and service in the process, performed ‘in-house’?
3. What shows and venues have they experience of working at?
4. How do they measure the quality of their work?
5. Do they pre-build stands to check quality, fit and finish?
6. Do they collect and publish reviews from previous clients?
7. What are their environmental credentials?

To be honest, if they can’t answer all of these questions to your satisfaction, you should be going elsewhere. You’re investing substantial amounts of time and money, so you need to know the people you’re considering working with are competent and professional, and are going to take the stress of the stand design and build away from you.


When deciding on a stand contractor, you need to look at one that can offer you the versatility of different configurations for different shows using a modular exhibition stand solution.

When deciding on a exhibition stand contractor, you need to look at one that can offer you the versatility of different configurations for different shows using a modular exhibition stand solution.

This will actually save you money over the longer term while giving your stands a consistent look and feel over different events – in other words a good modular solution gives you brand consistency.

For me modularity has number of other key advantages…

1. More versatility and reusability for future shows.
2. Cost saving over the longer term.
3. It’s actually better for the environment.
4. Quicker build and break-down times post show.
5. You look different from your competitors and that’s a good thing… because you are!


Sustainability is such a huge issue in this day and age and it’s not just a concern for someone else to worry about! We all have a part to play and I’m constantly advising companies to communicate the ‘sustainability message’ to their clients.

One definition of sustainability is “the quality of causing little or no damage to the environment and therefore being able to continue for a long time” This is exactly what you want for your business, and by default your exhibition stand.


Credibility – gives you peace of mind!

Modularity – saves you money and allows you to convey a consistent corporate look.

Sustainability – Promotes you as a business that cares about wider environmental issues.

So do invest time in getting the right contractor for your business as it will pay big dividends over time and save you a lot of stress.

Brett Vance, Host of TV’s Jet Jockeys, Launches, AirLifeTimes, Exciting New Aviation Blog

AirLifeTimes, Created by TV Host Brett Vance

“AirLifeTimes is a brand new, comprehensive blog that shines light on the whole aerospace arena” – Brett Vance

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 12, 2019 / — Pilot and aviation expert Brett Vance has certainly had a busy year so far. Between gearing up to host TV’s Jet Jockeys, an upcoming docu-reality series focusing on pilots and the planes they fly, and travelling around the country doing his job as a test pilot, Vance doesn’t let much time go to waste. Now, he has launched AirLifeTimes (, a new aviation blog that is sure to explode in popularity over the coming months.

AirLifeTimes is a repository of the latest and greatest in aerospace. The historical archives provide an insightful view to the past, a perspective so significant it must be preserved and referenced so that today’s aviation professionals don’t repeat the mistakes of their predecessors. Lessons learned are documented for good reason! Each section of the blog provides a new way of viewing the thrilling world of aviation.

“I have completed a massive search of electronic and print media to find a single outstanding repository of spectacular aerospace facts and stories and such a thing just doesn’t exist,” explains Vance, “The longer I’m in this business, the more I see that people are mystified by what pilots actually do, and when the discussion branches into some of the more specialized aspects of the career field—their eyes glaze over like an iced-up windscreen! Clearly those of us in the business need to spread the word and educate everyone! So…the roll-out of AirLifeTimes is like that of a new, long-awaited aircraft. Much in the planning and design stage; seemingly a lifetime in engineering and development; and finally, the full-up article is on the ramp, ready to fly.”

The AirLifeTimes blog depends on its readers for the best in content. The forum on the website will encourage aviation fans to share their stories over the internet, which can include adventures (or even misadventures,) riding in aircraft of all kinds. The purpose of the blog is to share those stories and photos, from hot air balloons to spaceships.

“AirLifeTimes is a brand new, comprehensive blog that shines a light on the whole aerospace arena,” continues Vance, “You’ll see some pretty amazing categories for our stories and articles. I chose these based on what I would want to know if I was either a novice—knowing very little about the industry—or even an experienced pilot or traveler with a great interest in the flying world. Everyone who visits AirLifeTimes will find something to love here.”

With the launch of the blog, Vance is encouraging others interested in flying to help build outstanding, relevant content. He stresses that with the help of other like-minded individuals, the blog can truly become a benchmark. “I travel a lot and I know you have some of your own stories you want to share,” concludes Vance, “I’m always looking for great writing, video, and photographic documentation. If you have a story to share, write it up, shoot it, and send it in via our Contact link. I’d love to hear from you and share your contribution to the conversation. Enjoy AirLifeTimes and I’ll see you in the arena. Fly safe everyone and check six.”

***Brett Vance is the host of TV’s Jet Jockeys, an upcoming docu-reality series focusing on pilots and the planes they fly. In the show, Vance does for aviation enthusiasts what Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs has done for the dignity of the trades and what Neil de Grasse Tyson of Cosmos has done for our sense of wonder about the universe. The sacrifices, accomplishments, and challenges of pilots are front and center in each jaw-dropping episode.

TapJets – Private Jet Instant Booking Platform Announces reaching its Round “A” funding goal and release of “SkyWizard”

We just happen to have a jet ready to go when you are

TapJets – Private Jet Instant Booking

TapJets has reached its goal in raising the “A” round of investment and added major functionality for aircraft operators seeking to increase their margins.

We want operators to spend more time in the air instead of in front of their quoting screens. Our technology handles 95% of the requests for quote instantly. That means more bookings and more revenue”

— Robert Klumb, SVP Operations

HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, June 12, 2019 / — Since its formation in late 2015, TapJets has consistently introduced innovative technologies to simplify booking of private jet charter. Today TapJets has taken a giant leap by leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning to fully replace quoting and selling functions that operators typically do to book their flights.

"With hundreds of thousands of flight requests being directed to private jet charter operators, we wanted to make the operators more efficient by leveraging our platform and other aircraft within the platform to win more trips", said Eugene Kesselman, CEO and Founder.

SkyWizard™ is designed to complement current solutions being used by air charter companies. The requests from charter brokers, clients, and other operators are analyzed by trained artificial intelligence system designed to optimize aircraft movement across the country. The system increases aircraft utilization by 15-20% which translates to improved operational performance and margins for the operator and aircraft owners.

“We want operators to spend more time in the air instead of in front of their quoting screens” said Bob Klumb, SVP, and co-founder of TapJets. “Our technology can handle 95% of the requests from brokers and other sources in real time. That stands for more bookings and more revenue hours flown.”
With the new functionality and additional funding, TapJets continues to expand its “Virtual Fleet” of aircrafts that can be booked instantly on a moment’s notice.

Companies need proof and traceability to confidentially make decisions the Decision Point AI operational passport and blackbox establishes assurance in regulatory and compliance environments”

— Karl Smith, Director of Decision Point

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 12, 2019 / — AI algorithms operation and trust

Decision Point has unlimited potential in all verticals and sectors and can deliver information in a useful format on which to base decisions. In response to growing concerns around the operation and accountabilities of AI algorithms and the potential for legislation or certification of AI's Decision Point has decided to adopt an Operational Passport approach.  The AI Operational Passport is linked to the existing augmented intelligence platforms capacity to create regulatory point in time reporting. The functionality for the AI Operational Passport already exists as it is fundamental to defence and security to have traceability on decision making for oversight and legality of actions.  Additionally the adoption of this approach follows the recently launched United Kingdom report on Trust, Transparency and Technology: Building Data Policies for the Public Good, by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Data and Analytics.

Building assurance into AI algorithms

With the levels of complexity and constant market movement experienced by organisations, enterprises, divisions defining the right question can often be a huge and expensive process. Long before being able to decide the next move, having the capacity and time to understand all the data points, opinions and perspectives requires months or years to confidently direct transformation, customer relationship management, operational risk management. And for fast moving aspects of commerce, transactions need to rely more and more on automation.

Companies need proof and traceability to confidentially make decisions an AI operational passport with an algorithmic blackbox establishes the assurance needed in regulatory and compliance environments not only explain what was done but why. Karl Smith, Director of Decision Point

The International Association of Certified ISAOs (IACI) Announces Hakdefnet as a Strategic Security Member

IACI announces Hakdefnet as a Strategic Security Partner to contribute to IACINet, the global "center-of-gravity" to access actionable threat intelligence.

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FL, US, June 12, 2019 / — IACI, the global association advancing cyber resilience by accelerating information sharing, announced today that Hakdefnet, a global German-based Security Research Company has joined IACI as a Strategic Security Member to contribute to IACINet, IACI’s global “center-of-gravity” infrastructure for access to actionable threat intelligence and defensive measures.

IACINet breaks down long-standing information sharing barriers and silos by connecting the public- and private-sector, ISAOs, private industry organizations, US Dept. of Homeland Security, law enforcement, security partners, academia, and NATO 48 Member Countries, 6,000+ private sector organizations, and 139 worldwide CERTS.

Hakdefnet and IACI will be working together to enable cybersecurity resilience by advancing analysis and delivery of actionable threat intelligence. Hakdefnet’s unique approach to Risk Intelligence includes contributions from the Hakdefnet actionable defense platform that is continuously updated with new and relevant attack research and analysis data and offering IACI Members technology that finds and detects vulnerabilities and risks that standard antiviruses and firewalls cannot.

“We are not going to solve today’s security problems with the same known methods we’ve been using. It’s only through having a better understanding of cyber risks and internationally coordinated threat intel and defensive measures information sharing that we can move from a reactive to a proactive security stance”, said Deborah Kobza, President of the International Association of Certified ISAOs. “We are thrilled to have Hakdefnet as a strategic IACI Security Member to advance cybersecurity resilience”.

“We at Hakdefnet are passionate about security, believing that everyone has a right to browse the Internet, access information, and buy products and services, without the risk to cyberattacks. International economies and the Internet are global human rights that help us live our lives as a free, happy, peaceful and enlightened society. We help others whenever possible by protecting those universal rights with our unique, passionate and proven approach of balanced value for (cyber) risk intelligence.” Michael A. Goedeker, President of Hakdefnet GmbH and HDN International.

Hakdefnet’s history and research goals as well as our partnership with IACI are clear; 1 To make complex security topics easy to understand, 2 Use our cyber risk platform CyberNSight™ as actionable intelligence, 3 to protect human lives while maintaining a moral compass and training the next generation of cyber defenders. Attacks have invalidated many security technologies we previously trusted. It’s time to level the playing field with real value, great training and correct cyber risk awareness.

About Hakdefnet

We help identify attacks, understand them, and protect against them. Our solution learns independently and keeps itself and you up-to- date on the latest (cyber) risks. This provides the basis for the best possible protection against “cyber” attacks and the loss of critical data, specifically when dealing with new threats that classical security products can no longer detect or find, because attacks have become much more difficult due to cyber warfare and espionage technology.

Based on CyberNSight™, VCISO, Cyber Intelligence Academy, Risk Reports and our Cyber Analyst as a Service Subscriptions, our clients not only know if, but also how they could be attacked by analyzing security gaps and how data is stolen. We believe Risk Intelligence is the only tangible way to successfully minimize and avoid the risk and damage caused by sophisticated cyber-attacks.

About IACI

The International Association of Certified ISAOs, headquartered at the IACI-CERT, Global Situational Awareness Center, Center for Space Education at Kennedy Space Center, FL is the trusted “center-of-gravity” advancing information sharing cooperation, coordination and collaboration by connecting the global community of Information Sharing & Analysis Organizations (ISAOs), private organizations, academia, government (US DHS, Federal Agencies, Law Enforcement, State/Local/Tribal/Territorial Governments and International organizations).
