TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- dynaCERT Inc. (TSX VENTURE:DYA) ("dynaCERT" or the "Corporation") provides the following updates:
Testing and Data Sharing Agreements TTSI
As announced in the press release dated April 15th, 2014, the Corporation had provided and assisted in the installation of a HydraGen(TM) unit on a 2003 Peterbuilt Class 8 truck through Total Transportation Services Inc. ("TTSI") headquartered in Rancho Dominguez, California. After four months of on-going testing and data collection, TTSI has satisfied itself with respect to its analysis of fuel savings and is currently waiting for testing by an accredited, 3rd party testing facility to validate reduced toxicity of emissions.
Caribbean Pilot Project
dynaCERT announces that it has concluded phase 1 testing of the pilot project of the HydraGen technology with a stationary power generator in the Caribbean.
Phase 1 objective was testing and data collection that measures the performance characteristics of a
9R32 Wartsila generator with the induction of hydrogen and oxygen at varying concentrations, compared to baseline performance.
All the base line and testing data relating to fuel consumption and engine emission profile,completed by GSA-Lab a chemical and environmental lab based in the Dominican Republic, have now been received and are being evaluated by dynaCERT staff and two additional independent engineers, collectively. A full report defining fuel and toxic gas reductions is being compiled and will be forwarded to all related parties in the Caribbean for review. Updates concerning next phases will be announced upon approval.
Acquisition of Technology
As announced on February 28, 2014, dynaCERT Inc. executed a Letter of Intent to acquire ownership of the technology that underlies its principal product, the HydraGen(TM). At present, the Corporation has an exclusive unrestricted, worldwide license to manufacture and market the Technology, in respect of which it pays a royalty fee of 6% of the net invoice price of such product sales. Under the LOI, the Corporation will acquire the Technology (including all patents, patents pending, intellectual property, etc.) for a purchase price of $750,000. The foregoing price shall be paid out of the sales of HydraGen(TM) units, with 50% of the profits from such sales being paid to the vendor and attributed to the purchase price.
The LOI is non-binding and is subject to being superseded by a formal purchase and sale agreement, which is expected to be executed and closed next quarter.
Appointments to Advisory Board
dynaCERT is pleased to announce the appointments of Dean Ross and Gerald Solensky Sr to its Advisory Board.
Mr. Ross is a retired Mechanical Engineer (University of Toronto) with 30+ year experience as Project Manager and Manager of mechanical engineering, mining and metallurgical consultants. Mr. Ross brings years of experience working with large diesel generators throughout northern Canada to optimize both fuel efficiencies and toxic gas reductions, as well as serving as Chairman of Hope Township LLRW ad hoc Committee and in the Hope Township Environmental Advisory Committee.
Mr. Solensky has been a professional engineer in structural mechanics, mechanical engineering and strategic planning/development of R&D programs for almost 40 years. Over that period of time, he has been intimately involved in a wide range of manufacturing programs, including but not limited to projects in the automotive sector. More specifically, he has been involved in such R&D programs as the Stealth Program for Northrop Technologies.
James Payne, CEO, gives a warm welcome to these gentlemen, their years of experience and expertise that they bring to our growing team of collective intelligence.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

There are many considerations when moving applications from on-premise to cloud. It is critical to understand the benefits and also challenges of this migration. A successful migration will result in lower Total Cost of Ownership, yet offer the same or higher level of robustness. Migration to cloud shifts computing resources from your data center, which can yield significant advantages provided that the cloud vendor an offer enterprise-grade quality for your application.

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration. Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
