Simplot and Spensa Technologies enter into multiyear partnership to build the Simplot Advisor Platform

Simplot, a privately held agribusiness, and Spensa Technologies, an agricultural services company, announced today that the companies have entered into a multi-year partnership to build the Simplot Advisor Platform for use by Simplot’s crop advisors.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – J.R. Simplot Co., a diversified agribusiness whose mission is to Bring Earth’s Resources to Life, has business operations in 40 countries around the world. Tuesday (April 25), the company announced it has entered into a partnership with Spensa Technologies Inc., an agriculture services company based in the Purdue Research Park of West Lafayette, to build the Simplot Advisor Platform.
Spensa’s precision agriculture technologies will power the Simplot Advisor Platform, which will be a component of Simplot’s SmartFarm. The platform will collect and analyze digital data for zone management, scouting, trapping and imagery while providing Simplot a way to enhance the portfolio of
SmartFarm® Precision Ag Services through the use of digital data as a tool to improve agronomic decision making.

UCPH tops the Nordic bill in Nature and Science

Excellence
The University of Copenhagen is the Nordic research institution which by far publishes the most in the world's most prestigious and leading scientific journals.
The University of Copenhagen is the leading research institution in the Nordic region when it comes to publishing in the world's most prestigious and leading scientific journals, Nature and Science. This is evidenced by figures from the Web of Science database.
In the years 2013 to 2016, scientists from the University of Copenhagen were either authors or co-authors of 511 scientific articles in Nature and Science. This is significantly more than Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, the health-science elite institution, which produced 358 articles. That makes the University of Copenhagen the most influential Nordic institution within natural and health sciences.
Prorector for Research and Innovation Thomas Bjørnholm is very pleased with the new figures.
“Nature and Science are the most influential scientific publications in the world, and if you can make your name in them, you can consider yourself part of the international research elite. So, there’s a great deal of pride in seeing how much room we take up in the Nordic region. One of the underlying reasons is that we have been successful in establishing a number of research beacons. It’s a great pleasure that the University of Copenhagen is at the forefront of the research race.”
Chinese focus pays off
On a top-10 list of individual researchers who publish most often in Nature and Science in the Nordic countries are four names from the University of Copenhagen. Topping the list is Professor Jun Wang from the Department of Biology with no less than 83 articles.
“Having Professor Wang associated with the University is a good example of what it takes to be part of the elite. We need to appear attractive to the most promising research talents. It took a committed effort to fetch Professor Wang to Copenhagen. This kind of commitment also contributes to supporting and developing our own talent base," Thomas Bjørnholm says and points out that the University of Copenhagen’s leading position in the Nordic region does not rely on just one person.
Professor Torben Hansen, Professor Eske Willerslev and Professor Oluf Borbye Pedersen from the University of Copenhagen are also among the Nordic researchers who publish the most in Nature and Science. These four top-10 scientists account for 159 of the 511 articles from the University. The remaining 352 articles come from a broad range of the university's other researchers.

Cubic and Partners to Support R&D for iMOVE Cooperative Research Centre in Australia

Cubic Transportation Systems to aid Australian Government with identifying and reducing traffic congestion using big data and predictive analytics
SAN DIEGO – April 25, 2017 – Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS), a business unit of Cubic Corporation
(NYSE:CUB), today announced its support of a decision by the Australian Government to award iMOVE Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) a 10-year grant worth AU$55 million to develop future technologies for smart transport and mobility in Australia. iMOVE CRC is a collaborative consortium of industry and technology innovators as well as government and academia. As part of the CRC, Cubic aims to address the lack of coordination between the various transport systems through the development of advanced multimodal transportation management solutions that can tackle complex and costly congestion.
“Transport is the backbone of our economy. As a country, we will fall behind if we cannot find ways to move our people and goods more effectively and efficiently,” said Ian Christensen, bid lead for iMOVE CRC. “Our roads are congested and our transport systems are not coordinated and it’s getting worse in many cases. The establishment of the iMOVE CRC gives us an immediate opportunity to tackle this situation, by harnessing the power of ‘big data,’ developing smarter solutions and engaging with the community to trial and deploy new technologies.”
“Cubic wants to provide a system that gives a holistic, multimodal network view while using big data and predictive analytics to identify where congestion is likely to occur and how we can reduce it,” said Tom Walker, senior vice president and managing director of CTS-Asia Pacific. “We are excited by the opportunities presented by iMOVE and look forward to working with the CRC and its partners to develop world-leading intelligent transport technologies.”
The CRC is being established to help address the growing pressure on Australia’s transportation systems caused by population growth and aging infrastructure. Research and development outcomes are aimed at reducing congestion, enhancing freight productivity and creating a more seamless multimodal travel experience for passengers.

Intelsat to Provide Intelsat Epic

Luxembourg, 25 April 2017 – Intelsat S.A. (NYSE: I), operator of the world’s first Globalized Network and leader in integrated satellite communications, announced that Morocco’s INWI has signed an agreement to integrate satellite services from the Intelsat EpicNG platform into INWI’s network.
INWI, the fastest-growing mobile operator in Morocco, is expanding into cellular backhaul services and, following the awarding of a VSAT license by Morocco’s National Agency of Telecommunications Regulation (ANRT), is also preparing to launch broadband connectivity services. Under the new agreement, INWI will incorporate services from the Intelsat 35e satellite, enabling the mobile operator to enhance its existing network while also delivering improved performance that supports INWI’s goal to expand its business and reach new regions in the country.
“In light of our new VSAT license from Moroccan regulators, we are able to expand our operations in Morocco and throughout West Africa,” said Naoual Laabsi, VSAT Design Manager, INWI. “In order to do this, we need the ability to manage our own network and provide new solutions for customers. The Intelsat Epic NG platform, with its high-throughput capabilities and future-proof technology, provides us the best way to reach these goals and succeed in a highly competitive market.”
“INWI is a progressive mobile operator, incorporating new technologies that support the introduction of new services and entering into expanded geographies. As soon as Intelsat 35e becomes available, it will immediately begin supporting the INWI mission, given the backwards compatibility of the Intelsat Epic NG design,” said Jean-Philippe Gillet, Intelsat’s Vice President & General Manager, Broadband. “Intelsat 35e, with its unique collection of high power wide-beams and spot-beams in C- and Ku-band is an ideal satellite for mobile operators seeking higher performance on their current satellite infrastructures.”
Intelsat 35e, part of the high-performance Intelsat Epic NG network, is scheduled to launch and enter operations in 2017. The flexibility of the Intelsat Epic NG open architecture and backward-compatible design enables service providers to seamlessly transition to Intelsat EpicNG high-throughput services and immediately realize efficiency improvements. Current Intelsat EpicNG customers are experiencing up to 165% improvements in efficiency. Using next generation hardware, Intelsat and its partners have demonstrated potential efficiency gains of up to 330%.
