News story: Advances in aviation security set to go on trial across the UK

first_imgGovernment funding worth up to £1 million is being announced today (Wed 5 June 2019) to enable pioneering aviation security solutions to be tested and trialled in a variety of environments which could include sports venues, shopping centres, museums and airports.The Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) programme is a joint initiative between the Department for Transport (DfT) and Home Office. It will award the funding to suppliers through the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) to cover the costs of testing and trialling their prototypes.The funding is part of a government commitment to further strengthen aviation security and support the development of solutions that could lead to increased security effectiveness, shorter queues and faster more efficient screening at airports.It will allow those with innovative ideas capable of enhancing aviation security to bid for the opportunity to potentially trial their concept in a public or live airport environment, or put it through further testing in a laboratory to determine its detection capability.Innovators can often struggle to access the materials and facilities that can help them gather the real-world data needed to take their pioneering ideas forward. The FASS programme understands that testing and trialling are crucial parts of the development process and this competition will support innovators to gain access to the materials and facilities they need.FASS is designed to encourage, fund and support the development of innovative technology to deliver a step change in aviation security. Its aim is to deliver solutions to aviation security challenges that can be deployed at checkpoints.Find out more about this funding opportunity.last_img read more

first_imgDeputy Padraig Mac Lochlainn calls for more investment in Garda resources to fight serious crimeSINN Féin Justice Spokesperson Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has expressed his deep concern at the latest crime figures which show a 15% increase in serious crime. According to figures due to be published by the Central Statistics Office, the number of assaults, thefts and burglaries has risen by 15% in the last year.Deputy Mac Lochlainn said: “While these figures are alarming, they unfortunately do not come as a surprise.“This is the knock-on effect that Sinn Féin warned of while this Government drove forward with its austerity plan and was intent in cutting back on the vital resources that our Gardaí needed to do their job. “There is a direct correlation between these figures and the closure of rural Garda stations, the lack of investment in Garda resources, and the delay in lifting the recruitment moratorium.”Added the Donegal TD: “Communities right across the country are, once again, paying the price of Government cutbacks while criminals become increasingly aware of the resource crisis within An Garda Síochána.“Local businesses too, such as Café Donagh in my own constituency that was subject to a cowardly attack over the weekend, are falling victims to these criminal elements who are continuing to terrorise local communities.“There is a simple solution to be found here. “In order for our police force to be fit for the purpose of a modern force, the Government must increase investment in Garda personnel and resource.“The operational and oversight changes that have been introduced only go part of the way to achieving an effective policing service.“Investment is needed to support these changes if we want our Gardaí to be truly effective in tackling serious crime.”MACLOCHLAINN: MORE GARDA RESOURCES NEEDED AMID RISING CRIME FIGURES was last modified: June 8th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AN GARDA SIOCHANAMACLOCHLAINN: MORE GARDA RESOURCES NEEDED AMID RISING CRIME FIGURESPADRAIG MACLOCHLAINNlast_img read more

MacBook Air Contest: What is the Best Route on the Road to the Cloud?

first_imgWhat is the best way to embark upon cloud computing? What do you do first? We’re doing a year-long contest on ReadWriteCloud, asking people for their comments about their views about cloud computing. Each month, we’ll give out a MacBook Air to the person who we think provides the best comment on that month’s topic.There is still time for you to give your commentfor this month’s contest. Here’s the topic:A first step towards creating a virtualized infrastructure often comes at a point when the customer starts experiencing performance issues. Servers start failing as application loads increase. When these issues start occurring, what are the first steps to take into consideration? How should a virtualized infrastructure be deployed? How are these pre-production environments developed? What are the most effective ways to deploy a simplified, reliable and optimized virtualization solution?What do you think? Leave a comment on our post for your chance to win a MacBook Air.Here’s a comment from Joe Masters Emison that provides a good example for the kinds of responses we are looking for:We have not moved everything to the cloud. By using the “do one thing well, and then expand” strategy, we discovered certain aspects of running remote virtualized hardware that would have a noticeable negative impact on our operations. The two downsides to the cloud that have so far kept us from moving everything are the network latency and huge data transfer times. We were aware that both of these could be issues, but by taking our migration one step at a time (and starting with those pieces that would not be affected by latency or huge data transfer times), we were able to determine how significant those issues would be for us. Additionally, another downside to the cloud–relatively slow I/O–ended up being a non-issue for us.At this point, we have every automated component of our data-processing pipeline on the cloud, but have kept the server that serves our local user interfaces and applications. So, in a sense, we have essentially returned to a client-server setup, where the clients (and servers that handle client interfaces) run locally for latency reasons, and the servers that handle heavy-lifting and need dynamic resources run on the cloud.What do you think? What is your thinking about how to get started with cloud computing?Comment today: Tags:#cloud#Contests alex williams Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
