Caribbean Pilot Project
As announced via the Corporation's press release dated December 6, 2013, and most recently updated on February 4, 2014, Phase 1 of the Corporation's pilot project in the Caribbean was initiated on December 9, 2013. It was originally anticipated that the Phase 1 testing would last approximately 4 weeks; however that timeframe was altered due to mechanical difficulties with the generator's engine (unrelated to dynaCERT's product and service). Repair of the engine has been completed now. Baseline data is being collected and Phase 1 of the Pilot Project is expected to resume by approximately the last week of April 2014.
Testing and Data Sharing Agreements
Enermek - As noted in the Corporation's press release dated February 4, 2014, the Corporation entered into an agreement with Enermek (a private equity company that focuses on providing environmental solutions and energy savings in the Latin American market) for testing of the Corporation's HydraGen technology on two Class 8 trucks with Cummins engines and sent product development and technical personnel to Chile in late January 2014. The foregoing agreement contemplated that following the initial testing period; the test protocol could be extended to collect further data. Accordingly, the test protocol period has been extended for an additional 90 days, during which third party testing, in partnership with a Colombian Academic Institution, will be conducted with the truck on a dyno to further validate both emission and fuel savings. The Corporation will be setting up the protocol for this test and assisting with the H2 and O2 injection set-up.
In connection with this ongoing relationship with Enermek, the Corporation is pleased to announce that the Corporation and Enermek have proceeded with the execution of an Agency/ Consultancy agreement. The foregoing agreement appoints Enermek as one of dynaCERT's non-exclusive agents to represent the HydraGen technology. The foregoing agreement is for a term of five (5) years (renewable for an additional five (5) years thereafter) and appoints Enermek as a non-exclusive selling agent of dynaCERT, which enables Enermek to represent dynaCERT's products, purchase wholesale products, obtain volume discounts, etc. The Agency/Consulting Agreement is non-exclusive, however Enermek may identify named customers from time to time, in respect of which they shall have exclusive negotiating rights for a period of six months following acceptance by dynaCERT. Enermek along with dynaCERT looks forward to the opportunity of offering this Product Suite to potential new clients in South America.
As announced in its press release dated February 4th, 2014, the Corporation has provided and assisted in the installation of a HydraGen unit on a 2003 Peterbuilt Class 8 truck through Total Transportation Services Inc. ("TTSI"). TTSI is headquartered in Rancho Dominguez, California, and operates trucking and shipping of containers via multiple deep water ports throughout the United States. Testing and on-going data collection continues.
AltEnergy / China Testing
Further to the Corporation's agreement with AltEnergy Advisors Inc. ("AltEnergy") (as most recently referenced in the Corporation's press release dated February 4, 2014), negotiations are continuing in connection with the potential purchase and sale of either or both the right to manufacture the HydraGen in China and/or the right to distribution of the HydraGen in China for on road transportation applications (or, alternatively, the entering into of "licensing agreements" whereby manufacturing of the product would take place internationally, in which instance dynaCERT would maintain control and distribution of proprietary and Intellectual Property to third parties). Though discussions are continuing, no agreements have been entered into at this stage, nor have any principal terms been agreed upon. Further updates concerning such negotiations and activities will be provided as they occur and become material to the Corporation.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and ...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
