Kraken Kicks Off OceanVision Project

first_imgKraken Robotic Systems has launched the initial phase of its OceanVision project. Starting in late September, Kraken will deploy its sensors and unmanned underwater platforms to conduct ultra-high definition seabed imaging and mapping on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland and other areas of Atlantic Canada.OceanVision is a three-year, $20 million project focused on the development of new marine technologies and products to enable an underwater data acquisition and analytics as a service business. OceanVision enables the acceleration of Kraken’s strategy from sensors and system sales to becoming an integrated provider of Robotics as a Service (RaaS) and Data as a Service (DaaS).Karl Kenny, Kraken’s president and CEO said, “We are pleased to reach this major milestone and officially launch our OceanVision project. OceanVision™ will result in an end-to-end digitalization solution offering advanced sensors, robots and data analytics as a turnkey service for imaging and mapping of the seafloor as well as seabed assets and infrastructure. “Today, high fidelity data is an absolute requirement for coherent input to machine learning algorithms – otherwise it’s garbage in, garbage out. We are uniquely positioned in the underwater industry as Kraken will build, own and operate the sensor-laden drones; Kraken (and partners) will run the missions; and Kraken (and partners) will analyze the data for our customers.”“We expect recurring revenues from RaaS/DaaS to become a significant part of our future revenue mix and strategic growth. Rapid subsea data acquisition and analytics will make it possible to significantly reduce the cost of obtaining high quality data allowing end-users to make more informed operational decisions in near real-time. The new technologies and services that Kraken will develop within the scope of the OceanVision project are currently not available in a tightly integrated offering in the marine industry.”OceanVision should enable Kraken to further new technology and product development and fine-tune recurring revenue business models. While near-term focus of the project will be the Inspection, Repair, and Maintenance (IRM) segments for offshore energy (oil & gas and wind), OceanVision will also address the requirements of other stakeholders in the fisheries, aquaculture, ocean science and underwater defense industries.last_img read more

Armed with fast car, high aspirations, Childs starts with three straight Sport Compact wins

first_imgWEATHERFORD, Texas – Folks were telling Julia Childs she had a fast car before the season started.She proved them right by winning the Mach-1 Sport Compact opener at Boyd Raceway on March 13. After a rainout, the Weatherford High School sophomore won March 27 and April 3 starts at the same speedplant.“It was pretty neat. I was on a roll,” said Childs, who finished third despite a broken tie rod her next night out. “I was hoping I could make it four wins in a row. That didn’t happen but three straight wins was a big accomplishment.”A top five finisher in a dozen of her 21 starts last year as a rookie, Childs was runner-up to car builder and crewman Brant Bachman in the Boyd point standings. Getting that career first feature win was goal number one for 2015 and she didn’t take long to achieve it, leading every lap and taking the checkers three car lengths ahead of her closest challenger.“I got really nervous when I saw that there were only a couple laps left and started slowing down,” admitted Childs. “When the race was over I was screaming in my helmet. Everybody came down and they started taking pictures.”The daughter of IMCA Sunoco Stock Car driver Michael Childs – he’s nicknamed the Wild Child so she’s the Wild Child’s Child – Julia has been going to the track since she was two years old.“I told my dad when I was little that I wanted to race,” she said. “I was pretty proud when I won the first night. Dad has been waiting to see me win for a long time.”It has not gone unnoticed that Childs takes after her father in preferring to run the lower line.“I stay away from the wall. For some reason, I don’t have much luck up high so I’ve learned not to go there,” she explained. “I run low.”Along with her dad and Bachman, Childs gets pit crew help from David Van Guilder and Robert Deery. She’s sponsored by Damon Hammond and Wild Child Race Cars of Burleson.A member of the choir and automotive technology program at WHS, Childs had to forego FFA horse judging to race this spring. She’ll resume that activity next school year.“I want to run for the track championship this season,” Childs said, “then hopefully move up to another class in 2016.”last_img read more

Betclic spoofs Portugal’s stale Christmas advertising

first_imgShare Share StumbleUpon Altenar: Supporting expansion plans in Denmark and Portugal August 20, 2020 EGBA responsible advertising code gains European broadcaster approval July 3, 2020 Submit Related Articles Betclic aims for highest French profile with Ligue 1 betting partnership July 1, 2020 French online betting group Betclic has launched its new Portuguese market multi-media marketing campaign to promote its Christmas offerings whilst parodying Portugal’s stale holiday advertising period.Competing for airtime and attention against Portugal’s biggest retail brands, Betclic launches its ‘Jinglebet’ campaign produced by Lisbon creative marketing agency Coming Soon.Seeking to expand its profile and coverage within Portugal, this summer Betclic marketing appointed Coming Soon as its lead creative account, tasked with developing Betclic’s new brand identity for Portuguese audiences.Repositioning its brand, last August Betclic launched ‘Censored’ – the bookmaker’s first integrated campaign for Portugal featuring popular comedian António Raminhos poking fun at state-owned betting operator Placard’s limited digital offerings.Backing Coming Soon’s work, Ricardo Domingues, Head of Portugal at Betclic, said  “Betclic has a huge potential for communication, and for a few months now it has been trying to make a difference with out of the box campaigns that have worked very well with players. . I believe Coming Soon, which has provided the creativity of a team that has been working very well for so many years, is the right bet to continue our bold and differentiating positioning as well as brand growth.”Betclic’s new executive team has earmarked growth within Portugal as a key corporate directive, a market in which the bookmaker has operated since 2016 with limited presence.At present, Betclic is one of four international bookmakers who have maintained a presence in Portugal following the government’s 2016 gambling reforms which saw a number of operators leave the market after the introduction of an ‘unworkable’ 8-16% tiered betting turnover tax.last_img read more

Rio 2016 venues to be included as part of ongoing corruption probe

first_imgThe investigation initially focused on transport and infrastructural projects associated with the Games, but is now set to include venues and services which have been financed with Government funds.This has grown out of the ongoing Operation Car Wash probe into corruption surrounding state run oil giants Petrobras.Construction companies paid bribes for inflated contracts with Petrobras, it is alleged, with leading figures across Brazilian society and politics having supposedly profited.Five companies implicated in that investigation are also involved in the Games: Odebrecht SA, OAS SA [OAS.UL], Andrade Gutierrez SA, Queiroz Galvao SA and Carioca Christiani Nielsen Engenharia SA.”It’s not just the physical works we’re looking at,” federal prosecutor Leandro Mitidieri told Reuters.“It is contracts for services, security, everything that used federal funds.”According to Reuters, investigators are due to scrutinise what happened to funding which had been designated to be used to help with the clean-up of Guanabara Bay.The controversial Olympic and Paralympic sailing venue has been among the biggest challenges for Rio 2016 organisers in recent years, due to water pollution concerns in the bay.The cleaning up of the bay was a major legacy commitment when they successfully bid for the Games in 2009, but several illnesses were reported after the Rio 2016 test event last August and concerns have remained over the water quality at the site.World Sailing claimed in March that they were satisfied with progress made by Rio 2016 at the venue.Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes has repeatedly insisted that the Olympics is free of any corruption, but others have been highly sceptical.Operation Car Wash has also been particularly damaging to the country’s reputation.It is considered among the biggest scandals in Brazilian history, with numerous major business and political figures implicated.Any proof of wrongdoing would mark a major blow to the country, which is currently in political turmoil following the Brazilian Senate voting to proceed with an impeachment trial against President Dilma Rousseff, which will see her miss the Rio 2016 Olympics.Senators voted 55-22 in favour of the move, meaning Rousseff is automatically suspended for 180 days.She is accused of “fiscal irresponsibility” for allegedly trying to manipulate budget gaps during the 2014 election, but denies the claims.last_img read more
