Saab Seaeye Leoport ROV

Saab Seaeye Leoport ROV system delivered to Japan’s Kaiyo Engineering In a bid to master mountainous seas the Saab Seaeye Leopard ROV system recently delivered to Japan’s Kaiyo Engineering has added an active heave compensator (AHC) to its launch and recovery system. Kaiyo Engineering, a specialist marine science company, is undertaking seabed research for Tokyo University and is using the Leopard to explore the feasibility of seabed mining. Adding AHC means Kaiyo can work offshore more easily in high sea states, as the AHC system will accurately maintain the exact relative depth of the tether management system from which the Leopard is deployed by compensating for wave movement and effectively creating a motionless state between them. This significantly increases the ease of Log file of winch response during tests in Japan. The green curve shows the vessel heave at the LARS and the orange curve the actual response of the winch. The harmonious relationship between both curves illustrates how the AHC’s millisecond response to displacement achieves accurate compensation. ROV operations in high sea states. The highly advanced AHC system from Scantrol is designed to maintain accurate position control at the winch in real time by calculating and compensating for any displacement of the vessel caused by wave movement. Increased operational time, safety, ease of use and efficient commissioning is the main focus of Scantrol AHC. With the knowledge from simulations and tests performed prior to the commissioning, the LARS system was upgraded on board the vessel by Hydramec and Scantrol in only three days. In Japan the system was tested to 38 record winch response and winch speed, by simulating 3m vessel displacement down to the Leopard’s 3000 metre rated depth. The 3000m rated Leopard is the most powerful electric underwater robotic work system in the world, making it ideal for complex and demanding tasks. Saab Seaeye is the world’s leading underwater e-robotics company with the most advanced range of tethered, autonomous and hybrid robotic systems engineered to address the diverse range of tasks found across commercial, defence More on page 52

CA Technologies strengthens security portfolio with new advanced analytics and Identity-as-a-Service offerings to protect and enable the agile enterprise Mordecai Rosen LAS VEGAS, Nov. 16, 2016 – CA WORLD ’16 – CA Technologies today announced a new behavior analytics solution that integrates with CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM). Called CA Threat Analytics for PAM, the product features machine-learning capabilities for better threat detection and breach prevention associated with privileged users. CA also announced CA Identity Service, a new, turn-key identity-as-a-service solution, to address identity and access management (IAM) needs for both on-premises and cloud-based applications. “By applying CA’s unmatched self-learning behavior analytics to privileged user activity, CA can help CISOs with their biggest challenge: staying one step ahead of the bad actors,” said Mordecai Rosen, senior vice president and general manager, CA Security business. “Going beyond protection, CA is extending secure business operations with CA Identity Service to support deeply embedded on-premises systems while taking advantage of the agility of cloud applications and services.” Setting New Standards in Threat Detection, Breach Prevention and IDaaS for Hybrid IT Environments Available today, CA Threat Analytics for PAM models privileged user behavior and evaluates risk based on factors such as a user location, time and duration of activity, the data being accessed and the user’s track record for security and past behavior. When a breach or threat is detected, the system automatically triggers controls to mitigate risks, such as starting session recording, initiating a stronger authentication procedure or alerting security system and operations. In a recent global survey conducted by Coleman Parkes for CA, 82 percent of respondents said identity-centric security is critical to the business.* CA Identity Service addresses the need for a modern, hybrid IAM solution – giving businesses the agility to quickly and securely adopt cloud ap- 39 plications and services alongside their on-premises applications controlled by CA Single Sign-On, managing everything from a single launch pad. CA Identity Service balances the demand for security, agility and a positive user experience. “We see our customers’ businesses moving increasingly to a hybrid IT environment. It’s clear we need to help them with an identity and access management solution that supports both their cloud-based and on-premises applications,” said Ed Pascua, senior vice president at Simeio Solutions. “CA Identity Service offers the flexibility and management we need to meet the demands of our customers’ hybrid enterprise. CA’s Identity Service is an excellent tool that helps Simeio More on page 52
