V-Protect is an advanced mobile active and reactive high-power jammer system aimed at helping block common terrestrial RF signal technologies as well as portable satcom equipment, spanning radio, walkie-talkie, mobile and Wi-Fi frequencies. Boasting a counter-improvised explosive device (C-IED) and counter-drone measures, the user-friendly model is to be installed in a standard SUV and offers automatic operability by utilizing 16 channels and high emitting power amplifiers to provide support in enhancing protection range and combatting various threats across the frequency domain. NavControl-G is a sophisticated transmitter unit designed to help prevent unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from trespassing into specific locations. To help safeguard a sensitive area, the system can emulate GPS signals to generate position and timing inaccuracies, thereby taking control of non-cooperating unmanned vehicles. Encased in a shock-proof container, the system can be seamlessly integrated across multiple configurations – either in fixed locations or deployed on the field when required. Waleid Al Mesmari, Vice President of Program Management for the Electronic Warfare & Intelligence cluster at EDGE, said: “Electronic warfare and intelligence make up the backbone of modern defence and security systems. SIGN4L is at the frontlines in pioneering breakthrough technologies that help our clients expand their options in a rapidly changing world. By assisting our clients with the management of their complex security and performance requirements, our latest solutions are prime examples of our agile offerings at work that focus energy to obscure, neutralise and attack adversaries.” SIGN4L brings a startup ethos to designing and producing state-of-art open-architecture digital and RF-based security products and services for governments and businesses in the region. The company has implemented a rigorous cycle of threat analysis, research, and development to monitor, analyse and counter emerging risks.

Cycling Studio Gets a Mega Expansion in Shrewsbury

first_imgBy Emma WulfhorstSHREWSBURY ­–  Sweaty, out of breath, but also energized and ready to start your day – that’s how you feel after the morning spin class at Megacycle in Shrewsbury. Megacycle classes are known for their high-energy instructors, combining music, coaching, and motivation to create a convenient and fun exercise experience for all ages and levels. This was the dream Megacycle creator and owner Megan Gridley had in 2012 when she opened her studio in a small, 800 square foot house at 800 Broad Street. Now, almost three years later, even more people will be able to experience the exhaustion and happiness of Megacycle.On Friday, August 28, Megacycle will move from its tiny house to a brand new location at 89 Newman Springs Road. With more than 3,100 square feet, the new facility will be much more than just a state-of-the-art indoor cycling studio.The new Megacycle will continue to offer various types of spin classes, like HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), Calorie Blast, and Spin & Tone, and introduce TRX, Pilates, and yoga classes. With three new instructors, convenient parking, and a child care room with babysitting services for parents, Megacycle has something for everyone.Megacycle will also partner with My Kitchen Witch Cafe in Monmouth Beach to provide cyclers with healthy meals and snacks on-the-go. When customers reserve a class online, they will also be able to order food from My Kitchen Witch’s seasonal menu. In addition to My Kitchen Witch, Megacycle will partner with other local food providers to stock their studio kitchen with water, coconut water, juices, and the latest fitness snacks.Gridley grew up in Branchburg and moved to Middletown 10 years ago with her growing family. At the time, she weighed 235 pounds and, at only 5’1”, was unhappy with her appearance, “I was embarrassed to put on the exercise outfit; I was embarrassed to take a class.” In an attempt to lose weight and get fit, Megan began eating healthier and running. Though she was able to lose the unwanted pounds, she injured her left knee in the process. Wanting to continue exercising, but unable to run, Megan found a spinning class and immediately fell in love.After becoming a certified cycling instructor, Megan taught at various studios in Monmouth County. As she became more experienced with cycling, she wanted to  customize her classes, but was limited by gym owners. That’s when Megan had the idea to create her own cycling business with a community feel. She wanted classes to be intense, but appeal to beginners, hard-core cyclists, and everyone in between.Megan is extremely excited about the move and all the new things Megacycle will offer, “We hope the new Megacycle will appeal to a broad range of people who want to be fit and have fun doing it in an easy, open atmosphere.”last_img read more
