Brady Bunte – Bernie Trifoso WWII Veteran D-Day survivor.

He told Brady Bunte that he couldn’t believe 75 years had passed since the Normandy invasion.”

— Brady Bunte

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2019 / — Brady BunteBernie Trifoso WWII Veteran D-Day survivor.

Brady Bunte says that it was a great honor it was to meet Mr. Bernie Trifoso a World War II Veteran / D-Day survivor. At age 95, a Laguna Niguel, California resident, and just 10 days ago marked the 75th anniversary of D-Day World War II and Bernie is one of the last survivors who served not only in this historical war but 2 more following it. He is sharp as a tack and carries a smart phone that he took out and took pictures of himself and Brady Bunte.

For Bernie and many in his generation, wartime memories have been locked away for many years and few soldiers ever talk about it, but a few years ago Bernie started sharing his wartime experience and the stories began to spill out.

D-Day marks one of the most famous military actions in history and is widely credited with ending World War II.

At 19 years of age Bernie enlisted in the Coast Guard. Service to the country was something that came natural for his family, all of his brothers served in World War II and miraculously all four retuned home safely. He attended Columbia University and Bernie has shown great patriotism for his county. He told Brady Bunte that he couldn’t believe 75 years had passed since the Normandy invasion. “It seemed like it was yesterday” Trifoso said.

Bernie earned 2 bronze stars for bravery and is proud to have served his country. And he spoke lovingly of taking his wife back to Normandy to share his wartime memories. Sadly, today she has Alzheimer's and was not there when we interviewed him. He calls her "the love of his life."
Trifoso asked that we remember those "who bravely sacrificed so that we could enjoy our lives." By Brady Bunte.

Alontrus Group Launches Multi-Protocol Blockchain Consulting Firm to Enable the Enterprise Blockchain Adoption

Business Value + Salesforce + Oracle = Alontrus

NEW YORK, NY, US, June 21, 2019 / — Alontrus Group, LLC has launched with a team of seasoned Blockchain technology veterans to address SMB/Enterprise Blockchain adoption in the banking, financial information services and insurance sectors.

The Founding Members of Alontrus are Lisa Canty, President of NEST Global Solutions, CEO of DocBlox and the former CEO of ChainNinja; Richard Brownstein, former CEO of AuraBlocks and Vikal Kapoor and Dominic Steil, currently CEO and CTO of Dapps Inc. The group has an extensive partner network and a portfolio of use cases across Salesforce, Oracle, Google Cloud Platform, Ethereum, Hyperledger (Fabric and Sawtooth), Quorum and R3 Corda.

Global Organizations are eager to grow their businesses by leveraging blockchain technology, but lack a trusted partner to deliver enterprise value.

The inflection point for adoption of enterprise Blockchain is now. Altontrus Group assists the SMB/Enterprise in deploying value based blockchain applications by applying proven methodologies and industry standards to the businesses digital transformation roadmap. The founders of Alontrus Group came together to remove confusion as to which blockchain to use and how to go about assessing a good use case.

“I believe the robustness of the Oracle Blockchain Platform is second to none, but other protocols, such as ones specific for high speed low cost payments are required in developing holistic solutions” says Richard Brownstein, Founder and whose previous company helped launch the Oracle Blockchain Platform at Open World 2017 with numerous working proof of concepts. “Although I love Blockchain, most solutions can be accomplished without it. That’s why a deep understanding of the business problem is most important.”

“Customers routinely ask us for knowledgeable consulting and implementation services for our suite of CRM dApps. While working with Richard and Lisa at a joint customer, our discussions led us to the realization that the market gap was larger than previously known.” said Vikal Kapoor, Co-founder and CEO of Dapps Inc. “The Alontrus Group has the cross-cloud, cross-platform and cross-protocol expertise customers need in the design, development and deployment of enterprise blockchain initiatives. At each customer, Dapps aims to deliver next-gen CRM dApps to grow the business. Alongside Alontrus Group, our EBC platform will enable innovative companies with “new stack” software that accelerates digital transformation initiatives and increases business productivity while supporting a faster pace of product innovation.”

“We document organize and map complex enterprise processes and then, based on where the highest ROI and where the least friction exists, we make recommendations. Many times we don’t recommend Blockchain. But when we do, we offer specific reasons for the blockchain we choose.” says Lisa Canty, a Founder of Alontrus Group.

The company is starting their operations in the NYC Metro area with an offering that includes several accelerators to produce proof of concepts and simulations of blockchain solutions on multiple platforms. No longer do you need to wait months to test a use case.

Alontrus Group is a Blockchain consulting, digital transformation and systems integration firm providing custom financial and insurance solutions that encompass AI, ML and IoT to enterprise companies with an in-depth knowledge on enterprise blockchains and cloud platforms.

Nexcopy Offers Larger USB-C Duplicator as 40 Target System

USB-C Duplicator by Nexcopy

USB-C Duplicator by Nexcopy

Nexcopy Inc. introduces the USB-C400PC, a 40 target USB-C or USB 3.1 Duplicator specifically design for USB Type C flash memory drives.

LAKE FOREST, CA, USA, June 20, 2019 / — Last month Nexcopy Inc. introduced the first 20 target USB-C duplicator. Building on that technology, Nexcopy finished the software and hardware requirements for a larger, 40 target duplication system.

The USB-C Duplicator has a list of features which pivot from the award winning Nexcopy Drive Manager software. Features include:

– Six copy modes
– Binary copy mode supports all formats; HFS, Ext2,3,4, Proprietary
– Unique data streaming to each USB-C socket
– Binary verification
– Erase and D.o.D. Erase for disk sanitization
– Data collection to extract files off USB-C devices
– Intuitive and informative Drive Manager software
– Upgradeable to PRO Series for USB-C write protection
– Upgradeable to PRO Series for USB-C partitioning

Stan McCrosky, head of Sales, comments, “Although USB-C flash drives are not main stream, we continue to get questions about duplication equipment for that memory type. I am excited to announce this larger 40 target system. The USB-C connector on flash memory will be slow and steady in the years ahead, and Nexcopy is ready for that demand.”

The USB-C400PC duplicator is based off the chassis of the USB200PC system. The ergonomic design and perfectly slanted faceplate with top-down insertion is the optimal configuration for heavy users who deal with flash drives hours on end. The USB-C sockets are clearly labeled on the faceplate and correspond with the Drive Manager software making it easy to identify USB-C media. The USB-C400PC uses two USB-C200PC chassis and is controlled by the host computer to both aggregator boxes. The USB-C400PC solution is 110 and 220 compliant.

“Apple computers and Iot, or Internet Of Things, are driving the force behind the increased demand for USB-C flash drive consumption. Although the internet is great for many data sharing applications, there is still a great need for data dissemination off line. USB is still the definitive choice among users to share data via flash memory,” states Greg Morris, President of Nexcopy.

Morris continues, “We see the demand of USB-C duplication to only rise in the coming years. In technology, smaller is always better, and as devices get slimmer in size the USB type A socket will eventually phase out and USB type C taking over. The transition is slow, but it is inevitable; and with that said, we are ready – today.”

The Drive Manager software which ships with the USB-C400PC offers six copy modes. Some of the more technical copy modes include binary Device Copy, Image Duplication and Unique Data Streaming. Device Copy mode uses two sub-settings a user may select to perform their required data load. Device Copy mode may be set for short image copy or full image copy. Both settings will copy boot strap code, partition tables, file system and files and folders. The short image device copy is used to copy only the data clusters used on the master device. This ultimately saves time by decreasing the amount of data being copied to targets. The full image copy mode will make binary copies of the entire master USB-C drive. This full image copy mode is required for file formats a Windows operating system cannot identify, such as HFS, Ext2,3,4 and proprietary file structures.

Unique data streaming is an ever growing market segment. The Nexcopy data streaming function gives a user the ability to put unique data to each USB-C flash drive. This is of particular interest for software publishers and on-demand USB production sent from on-line, front end order fulfillment solutions.

Image copy mode allows IT departments to master disk data and output that data to an IMG file. From that IMG file, the USB-C400PC will make a perfect binary copy of the master image file. This copy mode also captures boot code, partition tables, file system and files and folders. This copy mode is most common when a development team is responsible for creating the master data, and the production department is responsible for data duplication.

Nexcopy's USB-C400PC includes a sanitization feature which includes full binary overwrite feature in both single pass and triple pass random write sequencing. The proprietary triple pass overwrite method developed by Nexcopy insures all data of a USB-C drive cannot be recovered or restored through forensic software.

The USB-C400PC is a 40 target system. This system can be used as two 20 target systems, or used as one large 40 target system.

Web-Based Application Assists Companies in Increasing Visibility of Risks, Opportunities, Issues

Risk Radar Enterprise a risk management web application

Pro-Concepts, LLC

A risk, if you don’t keep visibility of it, becomes an issue. When it becomes an issue, you have to refocus, spend more money and change your resources around so you can actually solve the problem.”

— Shawn O'Rourke

UNITED STATES, June 19, 2019 / — Risk is part of everyday life. However identifying risks and knowing how to mitigate them can make or break your day or worse — make or break a company and its reputation. For example, a daily commuter may use a GPS navigation app such as Waze to avoid accidents or traffic jams to ensure getting to the commuter’s destination on time. Waze gives turn-by-turn navigation based on user-submitted travel time and route detail information. The success of the app is based on other commuters’ submitted information. What about companies who document company risks but the proper project managers and executives are not informed? How does a company ensure the visibility of risks, opportunities and issues or ROI within the company?

Here’s an example. In a recent CNN report, the aerospace manufacturer Boeing knew about a problem with the 737 Max airplane before a fatal crash in October 2018. In Boeing’s official statement, the review of the faulty alert system was made by “… multiple company matter experts…” but the “Senior company leadership was not involved in the review and first became aware of the of this issue in the aftermath of the Lion Air accident.” According to this statement, if all responsible parties were informed, this deadly mistake could have been avoided.

“Many companies have created their own system in tracking risks within their company,” says Shawn O’Rourke, president of Pro-Concepts, a strategic risk management consulting firm. “However those systems are not always real-time and oftentimes they are not regularly maintained which could lead to missed risks.”
“Every organization faces risks and unfortunately issues impacting their business objectives and operations. Critical resources are expended in collecting and disseminating information from various resources to resolve each situation,” adds O’Rourke.

Pro-Concepts offers to companies Risk Radar® Enterprise, a web-based application. RRE assists in mitigating risks within a company. The latest version released in May is version 7.0 RRE. The application facilitates proactive management of risks, opportunities, and issues (ROI) and communications throughout the organization. It is designed to increase the visibility of the enterprise, program, and/or project ROI by helping managers determine the best way of identifying, analyzing, tracking, mitigating, and controlling ROI. RRE provides global access to a company’s vital risk data and enriches the interaction between executive management, program and project managers, their teams, and others within and outside the organization. This type of communication could have helped Boeing correct the alert system sooner and before lives were lost.

To better serve their clients, Pro-Concepts continually updates RRE. “The new release of RRE integrates real-time time tracking of risks and any resulting issues into a single solution. The solution empowers the organization to integrate, enhance, and streamline their risk and issue management program into daily workflows, says O’Rourke. “By proactively engaging all of your organization’s stakeholders, risk, issue and opportunity awareness is improved and a risk-resistant organizational culture is advanced.”

Risk Radar® Enterprise not only provides a real-time visible perspective but more importantly, encourages risk awareness and remediation participation–from the corporate board to critical frontline workers.

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.
