Microdrones Expands into Asia with Acquisition of Aircam UAV Technology

As part of an ongoing global growth initiative, Microdrones has acquired Aircam UAV Technology (“Aircam”), a 64 employee Chinese company with its main location in Foshan, an hour-drive from Guangzhou in Southern China, and a branch in Beijing. Aircam has developed a large Chinese and Southeast Asian customer base with a focus on surveying & mapping, utilities, and oil & gas industries.

Aircam will be fully integrated with the Microdrones business, brand and leadership team. The Aircam brand and corporate identity will change to Microdrones, and all aspects of the business will be directed by the Microdrones global leadership team.

Microdrones and Aircam have a long history of working together. Microdrones President Vivien Heriard Dubreuil explains, “For the past decade, Microdrones and Aircam have shared a strong distribution relationship, selling and supporting Microdrones systems to professionals throughout the continent.”

Although Microdrones professional drones have been available in Asia (though Aircam) since 2008, Microdrones now has a direct, local presence in the market. Microdrones technology, products and solutions will be available to customers throughout Asia, subject to applicable export control and regulations.

“We’re talking about business oriented, field-proven solutions that will help end-users make better business decisions.” says Heriard Dubreuil, adding “Globally, this is the next step in our evolution. In Asia, specifically, this will have a revolutionary and transformative impact for our customers and our business.”

According to Francois Gerner, SVP of Corporate Affairs for Microdrones, “This is exciting news for Microdrones, our newly acquired team in Asia, and our respective customers across markets worldwide. Microdrones is investing in its presence in China so we can offer professional solutions to the high potential commercial market throughout the continent. With more than ten years of operation and market experience in Asia, we are thrilled and grateful to welcome the Aircam team to join the Microdrones family.”

Completed in late December of 2018, this acquisition hardens a global presence for the rapidly expanding company and its technology platforms. “We now command a best in class R&D, manufacturing, sales, service and marketing footprint across 6 continents, with more than 220 employees worldwide.” explains Gerner, further noting that “Aircam brings to Microdrones additional production and service capacity and a seasoned team, with access to an enthusiastic customer base across Asia.”

Microdrones success and notoriety worldwide is rooted in mastering all of the key hardware and software technologies required to provide fully integrated, professional solutions. As one unified company, Microdrones is best positioned to transform customer needs into effective, scalable products and solutions for professionals in all markets and territories.

Despite the name Microdrones, the global technology solutions company doesn’t just sell drones, but rather complete commercial packages that include:

  • The drone, adapted for professional applications,
  • perfectly integrated sensors,
  • software and workflow,
  • service, training and support.

Dr. Mohamed Mostafa, who directs product and solution development for Microdrones sums it up like this; “Microdrones designs each technical brick of the workflow to be optimized for the application, while supporting production of the best data for end-users. We offer proven systems for professionals in surveying, mapping, mining, construction, land development and inspection. The expanded Microdrones team will provide solutions that help professionals be the best both in the field and at the office. Our easy workflow takes users from data collection through information creation, with one goal in mind: to help them use our technology for better decision making.”

It’s Time to Replace SMB with Something Smarter

Original network protocols are starting to age out of usefulness. HTTP is being replaced by HTTPS, people are trying to replace DNS with DNSSEC, and TLS just got its first update in 8 years. Now it’s time to update SMB. Introducing SmarTransfer.

Eitan Bremler, Co-Founder and VP Technology of Safe-T, a leading security provider of software-defined access solutions for the hybrid cloud from Israel is discussing the question

"Why Would You Want to Replace SMB?"

He is discussing some of the drawbacks of SMB1: This is an old version of the SMB protocol with roots in the 1980s. While it’s still active on many computers, it’s generally only needed to communicate with Windows XP and Server 2003 operating systems – and if you’re going your job right, that equipment has already been uprooted from your environment. In most cases, you can disable SMB1 on throughout your network without encountering many issues.

SMB 2 and SMB 3 are a different story. They’re modern, full-featured secure file transfer protocols with strong encryption and robust failover. The major issue is that using these protocols, along with a similar protocol known as NetBios, requires administrators to open ports 339 and 445. Keeping ports open is bad practice for a secure network but closing these ports or disabling SMB causes a host of other issues.

Most notably, a vulnerability in the SMB protocol led to 2017’s mass ransomware attack known as Wannacry, which caused a total of $4 billion in damage. Frustratingly, even after the this vulnerability was widely disclosed, there are approximately 5.5 million devices that are still exposed to the internet in this manner.

Augmenting SMB with SmarTransfer

At its heart, Safe-T developed a new file access solution called SmarTranser (SMTR for short), which lets administrators close ports 339 and 445, and disable SMB from user segments, and replicate their functionality using the secure HTTPS protocol.

To the end user, nothing about their usual workflow changes. Accessing webmail, printing a document, or accessing a file on remote server will all look the same. Behind the scenes, however, an entirely different workflow will take place – one that administrators will ultimately find easier and more secure.

For example, SMTR comes with a smart access permissions console that lets administrators easily control how users use the files they can access. They can delineate who can read which files, who has read and write permissions, and who can create and delete files. With its simple UI, SMTR even lets administrators provide auditable access permissions to customers and vendors outside the network. This ensures secure and controlled access to any file types and content.

In addition, SMTR encrypts files at rest, making it difficult for unauthorized users to read or copy their contents. The product can also prevent unauthorized users from moving or deleting the file, or from uploading potentially compromised/malicious files.

SMTR is an Updated File Transfer Protocol for an Age that Requires Security

Protocols like SMB and NetBios have inescapable origins in an earlier era of information technology. They were created in an age where leaving open ports on your network was acceptable. Nowadays, leaving any open port on your network – even the ubiquitous port 80 – is an invitation to disaster.

When used in combination with other Safe-T technologies, SMTR makes it possible to do business on the internet without opening any ports to the outside world – and without significantly changing your normal workflows or impacting your end users. For more information on this technology, and how to start using it today, contact Safe-T for a free trial.

Durchgängig digital durch das Lager bis zum Kunden

Durchgängige Steuerung sämtlicher Warenbewegungen zwischen Einlagern und Ausliefern – DISPONENT Lagerlogistik und DISPONENTplus mit erweiterten Statistikabfragen und neuen Suchfunktionen – Integration von JasperReports in DISPONENTplus – Taskboard informiert Mitarbeiter ganz individuell über anstehende Aufgaben

Der IT-Dienstleister Weber Data Service präsentiert auf der Messe LogiMAT (19. bis 21. Februar) in Stuttgart Weiterentwicklungen für das Lagerverwaltungssystem DISPONENT Lagerlogistik sowie die Speditionssoftware DISPONENTplus. Beide Systeme ergänzen sich nahtlos, arbeiten mit einer zentralen Datenbank und sorgen für eine durchgängig integrierte Steuerung sämtlicher Warenbewegungen zwischen Einlagern und Ausliefern. Weber Data Service stellt aus in Halle 8 am Stand F06.

Eine neue Funktion von DISPONENT Lagerlogistik berücksichtigt automatisch die mögliche Anzahl der Artikel pro Lademittel und bildet daraus einzelne Lagerpositionen. Wenn zum Beispiel eine Lagerposition ursprünglich 5.700 gleichartige Artikel auf 10 Paletten umfasst, generiert DISPONENT Lagerlogistik daraus 10 Lagerpositionen beziehungsweise 10 Paletten mit jeweils 570 Stück. Lagerpositionen, für die bereits Fahraufträge gebildet wurden, werden dabei nicht berücksichtigt und in einer Hinweismeldung aufgeführt. Darüber hinaus ermöglicht DISPONENT Lagerlogistik jetzt neue Statistikabfragen für die durchschnittliche Lagerdauer je Artikel oder je Auftrag sowie die Umschlagshäufigkeit je Artikel in frei definierbaren Zeiträumen.

Auch DISPONENTplus bietet neue Analyse-Möglichkeiten: Die Auswertungen des Statistikmanagers beziehungsweise die Statistiken aus der Statistikabfragen-Verwaltung können jetzt automatisiert und zeitgesteuert ausgeführt und per E-Mail versendet oder im File-System abgelegt werden.

Eine weitere Neuerung betrifft das in den bewährten Monitoring Desk integrierte Taskboard, das jeden Mitarbeiter über seine anstehenden Aufgaben informiert. Neu ist, dass jeder Mitarbeiter selbst entscheiden kann, in welchen Intervallen die einzelnen Bereiche seiner Anzeigen aktualisiert werden sollen. Dadurch verringert sich die Zahl der unnötigen, zum Teil auch konzentrationsstörenden Hinweisanzeigen, Aufgaben können priorisiert und Server um unnötige Abfragen reduziert werden. Dazu kann die persönliche Anrede des Mitarbeiters individuell konfiguriert werden. Das neue Tool ist ein weiterer praktischer Beitrag zur Digitalisierung der internen Organisation und ersetzt die handgeschriebenen Notizen sowie gelbe Post-Its am Monitor-Rand.

Der zum Standardumfang der Speditionssoftware DISPONENTplus gehörende Monitoring Desk macht verschiedene Echtzeit-Informationen auf einen Blick sichtbar und bietet im Tagesgeschäft einen guten Überblick über wichtige Kennzahlen und Aktionen. Die grafische Oberfläche erscheint automatisch beim Programmstart und ist in sechs Bereiche unterteilt. In der oberen Hälfte bietet das Dashboard Transparenz und Kontrolle über Kosten und Erlöse sowie das Sendungsvolumen. Betrachtet werden hier die vier Bereiche Abholer, Sammelgut, Express und Teil- und Komplettladung. In der unteren Hälfte sind der Workflow-Monitor und das userabhängige Taskboard mit den aktuell anstehenden Aufgaben des betreffenden Anwenders untergebracht. Die einzelnen Bereiche können einfach per Mausklick vergrößert oder verkleinert, Farben individuell konfiguriert werden. Über den Download-Button können sich Anwender jederzeit eine PDF-Datei der aktuellen Ansicht erstellen. Eine Notizfunktion für Freitextnachrichten rundet den Monitoring Desk ab.

Ebenfalls neu sind die Berichtsvorlagen für das kostenlose Tool JasperReports, das als Alternative zu Oracle Reports in DISPONENTplus integriert wurde. Weber Data Service hat neue SYS-Reports in einem übersichtlichen Design erstellt, die auch als Vorlage für eigene Reports genutzt werden können. Inzwischen zählt die auf Java basierende Open Source Software JasperReports zu den am weitest verbreiteten Reporting-Lösungen. Eine interne Projektgruppe hat für die wichtigsten Speditions- und Lagerformulare einheitliche und übersichtliche Designvorlagen erarbeitet und bislang mehr als 20 Formulare und Labels zur freien Nutzung umgesetzt.

Weber Data Service: Wir digitalisieren Ihre Logistikprozesse!

Seit mehr als 40 Jahren entwickelt Weber Data Service innovative Speditions- und Logistiksoftware für Speditionen, Verlader, Transport- und Logistikdienstleister. Damit gehören wir zu den erfahrensten Anbietern der Branche. Mittlerweile vertrauen mehr als 2.700 User aus Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz unseren IT- und Logistikfachleuten  – und das zum Teil schon seit vielen Jahren. Zu unseren Kunden zählen Konzerne wie Q Logistics, ein Joint Venture der Österreichischen Bundesbahn, große mittelständische Logistikdienstleister wie Meyer & Meyer aus Osnabrück und auch kleinere Unternehmen wie die Ewald Spedition.

Trotz steigender Sendungsmengen stehen Logistikdienstleiter aktuell vor großen Herausforderungen. Die komplexer werdende Produktvielfalt, steigende Ansprüche an Service und Liefergeschwindigkeit, aber auch der Fahrermangel erhöhen den Preisdruck und zwingen zu kontinuierlichen Effizienzsteigerungen. Die Abwicklung muss automatisiert, durchgängig digital und vernetzt erfolgen. Historisch gewachsene Teilprozesse müssen in einen durchgängigen Workflow integriert, Fahrzeuge optimal und ressourcenschonend ausgelastet und der Sendungsstatus bis zum Empfänger digital überwacht werden.

Dafür bieten wir mit DISPONENTplus eine hoch skalierbare Standardsoftware, die flexibel an kundenindividuelle Anforderungen angepasst werden kann. Für durchgängig transparente und automatisierte Prozesse als Voraussetzung für geringe Logistikkosten stehen ein vollständig integriertes Warehouse- und Customer Relationship-Management zur Verfügung. Dazu integrieren verschiedene Apps Kunden, Partner und Fahrer auf nur einer Plattform und ermöglichen den Zugang zu Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).

Speziell für kleinere Unternehmen und Start-ups ohne eigene IT-Abteilung wurde die kompakte Speditionssoftware DISPONENTgo entwickelt, die bereits umfassend vorkonfiguriert ist und eine schnelle und unkomplizierte Einführung erlaubt.

Auf Wunsch werden agile Arbeitsmethoden wie Scrum eingesetzt und mit klassischen Vorgehensweisen kombiniert. Online-Schulungen und Workshops in unserem Schulungszentrum im historischen Dornbuschgebäude in der Feilenstraße runden das Angebot ab.

USU Software AG: Guidance adjusted in response to project delays

A number of major projects expected for the fourth quarter of 2018 – primarily in the United States – will most likely not be completed during the current quarter of 2018. In spite of the advanced stage of contract negotiations, the Management Board expects that the final contract awards will not be made until 2019. The Management Board has modified its planning for 2018 to reflect this development because the projects have a total license volume of €2 million to €3 million. The board now projects Group-wide sales of €89 million to €91 million. Adjusted EBIT is expected to total €4 million to €5 million.

“We have added a number of well-known customers in recent years in the United States,” said Bernhard Oberschmidt, the CEO of USU Software AG. “We are also in the process of conducting positive negotiations with new potential customers. But the formal decision-making process is taking longer than expected.”

Given the advanced nature of the negotiations, the Management Board expects that contracts for a majority of the projects will be awarded in 2019. At the same time, growth in the IT Service Management segment was significantly expanded. As a result, the target figures for 2019 include an increase in total sales to €98 million to €101 million and a rise in adjusted EBIT to €7.5 million to €10 million.

DEUTZ AG: New three-pillar growth strategy in China

  • Joint venture with leading construction equipment group SANY
  • Expansion of service business with HORIZON
  • Manufacturing alliance with BEINEI
  • Revenue of half a billion euros expected in 2022

DEUTZ AG is restructuring its market presence in China, entering into partnerships with three major Chinese companies – SANY, HORIZON and BEINEI – in order to benefit from the high-growth Chinese market. "China is the largest individual market for engines in the world," says Dr Frank Hiller, Chairman of the DEUTZ Board of Management. "Thanks to its new partners, DEUTZ now has the ideal production network for efficiently supplying local customers with DEUTZ drive systems. At the same time, we have access to an extensive service network that we will systematically enhance with digital solutions."

DEUTZ and SANY, China’s largest construction equipment group, signed a memorandum of understanding in Beijing. The two companies are forming a joint venture in which DEUTZ AG will be the majority shareholder with a stake of 51 per cent. Initially, the plan is to supply SANY with around 75,000 new engines for off- and on-road applications in 2022. These engines will comply with the China 4 and China 6 emissions standards. One of the leading engine manufacturers in the off-highway segment, DEUTZ AG is thus stepping up its activities in the on-highway segment as well. DEUTZ AG’s initial investment in the new joint venture is in the mid double-digit millions.

"We chose DEUTZ because it is one of the world’s top engine manufacturers," says Lincoln Liang, a member of the Sany Group’s board of directors. "In this joint venture, we will benefit from working with an agile company that is looking to the future and driving forward technological innovation. DEUTZ thus brings to the table exactly what we need for our engine development."

In addition, DEUTZ AG is entering into a cooperation agreement with HORIZON in order to strengthen its position in the attractive service business as well. With more than 80 branches, HORIZON is the largest player in the Chinese construction equipment rental business. It will become a local service partner for DEUTZ, servicing engines in the field and taking over the aftermarket sales business in China. HORIZON is also the ideal partner with regard to digital fleet service solutions.

Another element of the new strategy for China is a local contract manufacturing alliance with engine manufacturer BEINEI. This will act as a production hub for the Asian market. The DEUTZ management team is to oversee the manufacturing of approximately 20,000 engines in 2022 at a new factory in Tianjin.

In October 2018, DEUTZ AG sold its shares in DEUTZ Dalian, the Chinese joint venture that it had entered into with First Automotive Works (FAW). The new strategy now enables DEUTZ to fundamentally overhaul its market presence so that it can meet the growing demand for sophisticated engines not only in China but also in other Asian markets. On the back of its three pillar growth strategy, DEUTZ is aiming to generate revenue of around half a billion euros in China in 2022.
