PacSci EMC Demonstrates First Ever Successful Orbital Maneuvers and Orbit Raising of a CubeSat Using a Commercial Solid Rocket Motor Array
Using its Modular Architecture Propulsion System (MAPS™) technology, PacSci EMC successfully fired a series of solid rocket motors to both point and significantly change PACSCISAT's orbital velocity. The MAPS system provides fine slewing and pointing attitude control in all three axes and a robust orbit raising capability with greater than 50 meters per second of delta V in a 1U form factor. This capability can be scaled based on mission requirements and can be custom fit for a wide range of interfaces and exterior surfaces minimizing impact on satellite internals. MAPS can be used on CubeSats and SmallSats for attitude control, deorbit, drag makeup, and plane and altitude changes.
"All motor firings repositioned PACSCISAT exactly as predicted by orbital models and our control electronics functioned flawlessly during the entire mission," said Greg Scaven, PacSci EMC's president. "Due to our success, we are excited to announce that our MAPS technology is now commercially available to satellite manufacturers and operators."
MAPS is a scalable array of high performance, sealed, solid propellant rocket motors which provide propulsion capability for CubeSats, SmallSats and small upper stages. MAPS has no tanks, valves, tubing or heaters making it a "plug and play", bolt-on design. MAPS has a 10+ year on-orbit lifetime, can be almost instantly activated, uses very low power, has three independent inhibits against firing, and provides variable thrust by firing in pairs, triples, quads, etc. MAPS is adaptable & scalable and fits in unused separation system or other spacecraft real-estate. MAPS may be configured as a standalone system or with an integral guidance, navigation and control (GN&C) system.
The PACSCISAT satellite with its PacSci EMC MAPS payload was successfully built and operated by Tyvak, a Terran Orbital Corporation. It was launched on June 22, 2017 on the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle flight C38 (PSLV-C38) from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in India.

Inside Secure to Provide Secure Provisioning Solutions to NationalChip18.6.2018 18:35 | Tiedote
Regulatory News: Inside Secure (Paris:INSD), at the heart of security solutions for mobile and connected devices, announced it entered into an agreement with Hangzhou NationalChip Science and Technology Co., Ltd, a leading innovator and developer of SoCs (system-on-chip), to use Inside Secure’s Secure Provisioning Solution to build robust security into its products during the chip manufacturing process. Secure provisioning is recognized as a crucial, foundational security building block across diverse markets including automotive, entertainment, IoT, mobile and TV. Securing devices or end products can be worthless if their identities and cryptographic keys have been compromised during manufacturing. Widely-publicized attacks have targeted provisioning because they can affect large numbers of devices and are difficult to detect. Chipmakers and device manufacturers see the potential for new revenue sources by offering secure provisioning to their customers, leveraging technology solution
Citi Private Bank Congratulates Fernando Alonso on the 24 Hours of Le Mans Win18.6.2018 17:01 | Tiedote
Citi Private Bank ardently congratulates Fernando Alonso for his impressive win at The 24 Hours of Le Mans this past weekend. Mr. Alonso, who is also a two time Formula One World Champion, most recently competed and won the Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps in May. In January he debuted at the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Previously he participated in the Indianapolis 500 in May of 2017. He was sponsored by Citi Private Bank for all four races. Alongside the Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix, Le Mans makes up one third of ‘the Triple Crown of Motor Racing’. Having already won Monaco twice, Mr. Alonso is on a quest to become only the second driver in history to complete the Triple Crown. “Fernando drove one the most thrilling races at Le Mans that I have ever seen. His stunning night time drive will likely go down as one of the greatest victories in motorsport’s history,” said Peter Clive Charrington, Global Head of Citi Private Bank. “Fernando possesses an unrelenting drive toward excell
Inteva Products Receives Top Innovation Award for Revolutionary Stitching Process18.6.2018 16:31 | Tiedote
Inteva Products, LLC, a leading global Tier One automotive supplier of engineered components and systems, received the top prize in the 2018 Innovation Awards presented by the European Association of Automotive Suppliers (CLEPA) at The Hague, Netherlands, on June 13. Inteva was recognized for its new real-time scanning process for the robotic stitching of automotive interiors. This innovative technology will be used on instrument panels for the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks. The new process enables “live” scanning and immediate adjustments to the program path of robotic stitching equipment as a component is being stitched. This approach aligns leading-edge advances in the use of lasers in automotive manufacturing with Inteva’s unique robotic stitching technologies. The advancement reduces the average cycle time of a stitched surface by approximately 20-30%. The 2018 CLEPA Innovation Awards, organized in cooperation with Deloitte, celebrate automotive excellence

Avedro Announces Enrollment of First Patient in U.S. Pivotal Phase 3 Epi-on Corneal Cross-Linking Trial for Progressive Keratoconus18.6.2018 15:00 | Tiedote
Avedro, Inc., an ophthalmic pharmaceutical and medical device company and the world leader in corneal remodeling, today announced that it has begun enrolling patients in a pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an epithelium-on (epi-on) corneal collagen cross-linking procedure to treat patients with progressive keratoconus. Keratoconus is a non-inflammatory eye condition in which the typically round dome-shaped cornea progressively thins and weakens and is the leading cause of penetrating keratoplasty (corneal transplant) in the United States1. The Phase 3 clinical trial, ACP-KXL-308, is a multicenter, randomized, controlled study of a novel corneal cross-linking procedure of 275 patients with progressive keratoconus across approximately 20 sites in the United States. As is typical for U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) drug trials, investigational treatments are provided at no cost to participating patients. “As a practitioner who has treated many p
