About Liquid Robotics Liquid Robotics, Inc. is an ocean data services provider and developer of the Wave Glider(R), the first wave powered, autonomous marine robot that functions as a persistent and versatile platform for scientific, industrial, and defense payloads.

SUNNYVALE, CA and KAMUELA, HI, Aug 08, 2012 -- Liquid Robotics(R), an ocean data services provider and developer of the Wave Glider(R), the first wave-powered, autonomous marine robot, today announced at AUVSI 2012 the formation of a wholly owned subsidiary, Liquid Robotics Federal, LLC, and named Grant Palmer as the Senior Vice-President leading the subsidiary. A 32-year C4ISR technology market veteran and former Division President, L-3 GCS, Mr. Palmer has extensive experience in the US Defense and National Security sectors, as well as International Commercial/Military sectors. Prior to L-3 GCS, Mr. Palmer held key management positions at Cubic, The Spectrum Group, Tripoint Global Communications (now GD Satcom Technologies), GE/Gilat Spacenet, and Harris GCSD.


The creation of the Subsidiary underscores Liquid Robotics' long-term commitment to its largest and fastest-growing customer base.

"By standing up the Federal Subsidiary, Liquid Robotics will be able to dedicate additional resources and engineering talent necessary to address the full breadth of emerging robotic missions that Wave Glider technology offers to the Federal Government market," said Marv Langston, Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, US DoD; and former Deputy Secretary of the Navy, Space and Electronic Warfare.

As navies and other governmental entities around the world look for innovative and more cost-effective solutions to persistent surveillance, monitoring, and communications on the seas and coastlines, they are looking to the revolutionary technology of Liquid Robotics' Wave Glider.

"Across the Government we are experiencing heightened demand for and interest in the Wave Glider's long endurance and persistent surveillance, communications, and advanced capabilities," said Bill Vass, CEO of Liquid Robotics. "Establishing a dedicated federal subsidiary and attracting as accomplished a government market executive as Grant Palmer, provides the right infrastructure and the right leader, at the right time to address the growing demands of the U.S. government to monitor and protect America's maritime security interests and enable advanced scientific missions."

The new subsidiary reports to Bill Vass, the CEO of Liquid Robotics, and is headquartered in the Washington Metro Area. Liquid Robotics is currently hiring experienced business development managers, program managers, and systems engineers. To learn more visit http://liquidr.com/careers/ .

About the Wave Glider The Wave Glider is the first unmanned autonomous marine robot to use only the ocean's endless supply of wave energy for propulsion (no manpower, no emissions, no refueling). The Wave Glider employs a multi-patented design that allows it to cost-effectively collect and transmit data gathered during yearlong missions, over distances of thousands of miles, or while holding station. Data gathered by Wave Gliders will help us address the biggest challenges our marine environments face -- including ocean acidification, fisheries management, security, and natural disaster mitigation.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
