Paul Hed, member of the National Geospatial Agency's (NGA) Motion Imagery Standards Board, completed a new standard (ST1204.1) for ensuring proper Sensor and Platform (e.g. Unmanned Aerial Systems - UAS) Identification for all government Motion Imagery (i.e. Video) Systems. This standard was recently approved by the Motion Imagery Standards Board and will be incorporated in new and upgraded DoD systems in the coming years.
Adventium was awarded a patent today for its virtualized cross domain information sharing technology called XEBHRA™. The patent, titled Multi-Domain Information Sharing (Patent #8,590,005), is an innovative method to guarantee that traffic between domains only goes through a guard, where both domains and the guard are hosted as virtual machines on the same hypervisor. This is a key step towards enabling virtualized cross domain transfer solutions.
