QUAN Explores Unlimited Market Potential of Nanobot Swarms

Quantum is already working to leverage demand for powerful new medical technologies.

HOUSTON--As Quantum International Corp. (OTCBB: QUAN) works to develop and commercialize game-changing robotics innovations, a startling new breed of robot could hold the key to rebuilding the world's coral reefs: the swarm.


Around the world, reefs are at risk from a commercial fishing technique known as bottom trawling, which regularly damages coral. The solution to keeping reefs and their surrounding ecosystems teeming with fish could be swarms of small, autonomous coral-fixing robots.

When trawling nets encounter coral reefs, they break off coral branches. If these branches are found reasonably quickly and cemented back onto the reef, they will resume growing. Today, this work is done mostly by volunteer scuba divers. Nanobots could handle the job much more quickly, working cooperatively like swarming insects such as bees or wasps to retrieve broken pieces of coral and reattach them.

There are crucial advantages to this swarm approach. Because any individual robot is not crucial to the project by itself, it doesn't need to be built too rugged or sophisticated. When a single nanobot gets damaged, the other coral-bots could simply adapt to take on their workload.

"The swarm approach could potentially be applied profitably to all manner of tasks, from reef repair to health care," said Quantum CEO Robert Federowicz. "Smaller versions of the same technology could soon be fighting cancer inside the body. The possibilities are nearly limitless for this new technology, which translates to incredible market potential."

Quantum is already working to leverage demand for powerful new medical technologies. The company is close to an agreement with Poland's Industrial Research Institute for Automation and Measurement (PIAP) to assist in the commercialization of the Resuscitator, a portable device designed to ensure that chest compressions, the element of CPR most prone to human error, can be easily administered perfectly by amateurs and professionals alike.

Quantum is working to develop the next generation of robotics technology to compete in a booming global industry alongside Intuitive Surgical, Inc. (NasdaqGS: ISRG), iRobot Corporation (NasdaqGS: IRBT) and Dover Corp. (NYSE: DOV).

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.
