NBAA BACE is Back with ViewTech Borescopes Exhibiting at Booth 1522

TRAVERSE City, Mich. -- After a year away from a face-to-face NBAA BACE, ViewTech Borescopes is eager to be one of over 700 exhibitors as the aviation community reunites. ViewTech Senior Sales Consultant, Zach Wessels, a "2021 AMT 40 Under 40 Maintenance Professional Award" recipient, is ready to reconnect and network during the 3-day National Business Aviation Association event.

Since 2013 ViewTech Borescopes has been an exhibitor at NBAA events and this year will be located at booth #1522, inside Las Vegas Convention Center's recently opened West Hall. On display, ViewTech's VJ-3 2.8mm, VJ-3 3.9mm, and VJ-3 Dual Camera video borescopes will also be available for attendees to demo after NBAA BACE has concluded. With ViewTech Borescopes no-cost, no-obligation demo offer, prospective clients can trial a VJ-3 video borescope at their own facility, on their own equipment.

"Since last exhibiting at an in-person NBAA event, our lineup of VJ-3 video borescopes have several new features and options available," said Wessels. "I am excited to share with attendees and fellow exhibitors why our borescopes are one of the top choices by MRO and FBO facilities."

With a large percentage of ViewTech's clientele based in the aviation and aerospace industries, they are consistently informed that the VJ-3 video borescope performs the heavy lifting for 99% of their client inspections, many of which entail viewing inside of critical components. By providing the best borescope option for their budget, ViewTech Borescopes have been saving companies time and money on their preventative maintenance and MRO inspections.

VJ-3 Video Borescope

The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a nondestructive visual testing instrument used for the remote visual inspection of machinery, equipment, and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of an inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 consists of two modules integrated into one system: an insertion tube with distally mounted camera/LEDs, and the base unit with control panel, LCD monitor, power source and all necessary circuitry.

About ViewTech Borescopes

ViewTech Borescopes, founded as RF System Lab in 2008, is North America's #1 seller of video borescopes. Their first product, the VJ borescope, set a new standard for portability, ergonomics and ease-of-use, with its industry-first mechanical, joystick-controlled articulation.

Securitronics Meets Rochester Regional Health’s Sensitive Security Through ZKTeco USA’s Touchless Biometric Access Control

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- Rochester Regional Health needed to enhance security at key health system facilities throughout Western New York. Securitronics, a security company specializing in the provision of intelligent, technologically empowered security systems was contacted for this project. In turn, Securitronics connected with ZKTeco USA to deploy a new state-of-the art access control solution using SpeedFace, a multi-functional, touchless standalone access control reader with facial and palm vein recognition.

Securitronics has installed these readers at various other facilities spread across multiple industries with great success, so it was pleased to help Rochester Regional to optimize its security while avoiding an overbearing or unwelcoming experience for staff and patients.

SpeedFace's contact-less capabilities have proven transformative in healthcare environments. Practitioners, nurses, support staff and administrative personnel often have their hands full with pushing wheelchairs, carrying trays of medical supplies or transporting sensitive equipment around facilities. But SpeedFace's hands-free, facial and palm vein recognition reading capabilities ensure that unencumbered door access can be gained with ease. This is essential in situations such as medical emergencies, where there is no time to waste looking for keys or access cards.

So, how does the technology work? SpeedFace is a fast-matching and highly accurate facial recognition platform, designed for indoor and outdoor use. It can store and match up to 50,000 face templates and 5000 palm vein templates, and within a second of recognizing a faculty member or patient's face, doors are immediately unlocked. Further, it's a multi-layered biometric access control solution that combines recognition technologies - face and palm vein identification - with body temperature and/or mask detection. It also has relay contacts for controlling the door locks and Wiegand and OSDP output to interface with third party access control systems as well.

This additional capability reinforces traditional security measures while maintaining COVID-19 sanitized environments - something essential in a healthcare context. SpeedFace not only met the health system's tiered security criteria, it did so while improving ease of movement around facilities and managing deployment costs.

ZKTeco USA's SpeedFace readers have met Rochester Regional Health's goals and Securitronics reports that the health system has found the solution to be straightforward and logical and its successful expansion of the existing access control system. Through SpeedFace, Rochester Regional now has greater peace of mind, confident in the knowledge that only authorized staff can gain access to security-sensitive areas.

Terry Rivet, President and CEO, Securitronics, said, "The client has found the solution to be easy to use, budget friendly and the expansion of biometrics into their existing access control system to be a valuable investment that will warrant continued expansion of their technology."

Manish Dalal, President and Founder, ZKTECO USA said, "We have been working with Securitronics since last 7+ years and have always met the unique security challenges posed to us from time to time by their customers with our huge biometric hardware and software portfolio."

GridBright, Inc. launches GRIDEON Secure Grid Collaboration (SGC) As A Service to Help Utilities Share Sensitive Data Needed to Keep the Lights On

ALAMO, Calif. -- Essential to managing today's and the future electric grid is data-its movement and security. GRIDEON developed by GridBright (gridbright.com) under an award from the US Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA-E) addresses this need.

It was created in collaboration with a team of cybersecurity and utility industry experts from BetterGrids Foundation (Bettergrids.org), Midcontinent Independent System Operator (misoenergy.org), and Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperative (mcecoop.com). Over 40 organizations across the grid value chain have contributed to defining the requirements for GRIDEON.

"MCEC needed to share critical data with a strategic partner. Internet and email were not sufficiently secure. For years the method was walking a USB key to the partner for exchange. GRIDEON is a better way," says Keith Sturkie, VP of IT at MCEC. "GRIDEON improved our security posture and lowered our costs."

GRIDEON is an open-source-based suite of easy-to-use cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, technologies, enablement and support services, and standards that provide the full set of capabilities required to instantiate any type of secure grid data exchange.

GRIDEON efficiently ensures secure and compliant grid data exchange among all-electric ecosystem participants encompassing the entire electric value chain from generation to consumers (prosumers) spanning business and real-time operations.

It accommodates the creation of multiple types of exchanges necessitated by the utility industry's grid data sharing applications such as collaboration, real-time system integration, publication-subscriber, one-to-many, among just a few.

Secure Grid Collaboration is the second service established on GRIDEON. The first is the BetterGrids Grid Model Repository that is presently used in 45 countries. BetterGrids.org is a free library of curated, non-sensitive grid models shared voluntarily by grid researchers. It includes synthetic and anonymized grid models and uses a rigorous curation process to ensure data quality. AI tools for semantic and natural language searching allow researchers to find their desired test data easily.

Secure Grid Collaboration extends the GRIDEON service reach. It establishes core grid data exchange standards that drive cost efficiency and management efficacy for foundational exchange artifacts such as nondisclosure agreements (NDA) between counterparties. It provides the foundation for future process management and real time services in emergency management and DER integration and beyond.

It also implements the enabling processes for secure grid data exchanges such as participant registration and advanced encryption key services that support exchange operations, security, and compliance.

Girding these key elements is a support organization providing 24 x 7 help, operations, and technical support functions required by the operational nature of many of the exchanges a typical utility will implement.
