Sentient Science Reaches a Computational Milestone – 1.5 Million Tests Run in the Past 6 Months with UB’s Center for Computational Research

Today, Sentient Science announced they have reached a computational milestone in predicting the remaining use life of wind turbine gearboxes and other rotating mechanical components throughout North America. In the past six months Sentient has run 1,500,000 gearbox component and system computational tests on the University at Buffalo’s Center for Computational Research High Performance Computing Cluster. This infrastructure has allowed Sentient to scale their life extension solutions for wind turbine owners and other industrial systems. This is a significant number of computational tests, compared to traditional methods for O&M planning, including conditional-based maintenance and physical testing of critical components.

Market Report, "Brazil Defence & Security Report Q2 2014", Published

LogoFallout from revelations in Q313 that the US National Security Agency (NSA) conducted widespread surveillance on Brazilian citizens including Brazil's President, Dilma Roussef, has remained at the centre of security and defence developments in Brazil over the last quarter. With the possible exception of Germany, the Brazilian Government has issued the sternest condemnation of the NSA's surveillance programme. Not only did Roussef cancel an official state visit to Washington scheduled for September, but she also publicly chastised the United States at the UN General Assembly later that month. It is still unclear as to what longterm effects the NSA's actions will have on Brazil-US defence and security ties. However, given developments over the last quarter, BMI can confidently predict that this episode has far from run its course.

Recently Released Market Study: Iran Defence & Security Report Q2 2014

LogoThe report examines the trends in Iran's current and future defence procurement, and the order of battle across its armed forces. The report's general conclusion is that, despite the domestic and diplomatic respite President Hassan Rouhani's tentative engagement with the US and the West may bring, Iran faces extreme economic and security challenges. Primarily, the fact that Israel has rejected the ongoing international overtures to Tehran means Iran is still at risk (albeit unlikely) of a unilateral strike from Israel. Other risks partly stem from Iran's controversial nuclear programme and also from its unpopular support for the Assad regime in Syria. International sanctions have gutted Iran's oil exports, which have now sunk to less than half of their usual level. However, given the improvement in international relations caused by Iran's engagement with West, BMI has revised the real GDP growth forecasts this quarter, and is projecting an improved performance in real terms in 2014, up from our previous forecast of 2.4% growth. Iran's economy will return to growth in 2014, as improving relations with the West and better macroeconomic management, coupled with low base effects, will lead to an improved outlook for exports and increased business and consumer confidence.

Romania Defence & Security Report Q2 2014 - New Study Released

LogoRomania's annual defence budget has historically maintained an average level of USD2.2bn between the years 2010 and 2017. BMI expects Romania's annual defence budget to be worth an estimated USD2bn in 2014. There is undoubtedly a need for defence spending to increase in Romania, given that the country's armed forces are in serious need of modernisation, in order to replace obsolete equipment which the country obtained during the Cold War.

Vietnam Defence & Security Report Q1 2014: New Research Report Available at Fast Market Research

LogoChina's declaration of an Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) over disputed areas of the East China Sea, has raised concerns that China may take similar unilateral actions in the South China Sea. Given that Vietnam is involved in territorial disputes with China in the South China Sea, most notably over the Spratly and Parcel Islands, any advances from Beijing would have far more serious repercussions on Vietnams defence and security policy.

Saudi Arabia Defence & Security Report Q2 2014: New Research Report Available at Fast Market Research

New Market Study Published: Yemen Defence & Security Report 2014

LogoYemen is suffering from ongoing political instability, armed insurgencies and both criminal and jihadi activities within its borders. Although some progress has recently been achieved in Yemen's National Reconciliation Conference, very significant hurdles remain, including the desire of many in the South to form an independent state. We believe that a general election, scheduled to take place in February 2014, will not be held until Q214 at the earliest. Overall, the future of Yemen is of great importance for the Middle East. Yemen's position next to Saudi Arabia means the kingdom is greatly concerned with instability spreading to its own territory. In addition, Yemen has emerged as a safe haven for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which has masterminded several failed terror attacks against the West. Furthermore, as Yemen borders the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, any chaos in the country could boost piracy in these waters, which has already surged as a result of lawlessness in nearby Somalia.

Recently Released Market Study: 2013 Global Thermal Power Market Update - Continued Growth

LogoThermal power accounts for the majority of global electricity generation and is expected to continue its dominance in the future as well. Governments in developed and developing countries, along with taking initiatives to curb negative impact from fossil fuel fired power generation on the environment have been taking various steps to ensure a sustainable and continuous energy supply in their respective countries. Thermal power is the most reliable source of power generation as the power produced through this source is at a higher capacity factor as compared to renewable plants. Though fossil fuel fired plants pollute air, moving away completely from thermal power to alternative energy is not suitable approach to ensure energy security, therefore, continued growth of thermal power is the only way to meet the rising electricity demand going forward.

Recent Study: Ukraine Defence & Security Report 2014

LogoOverall, defence and security risks are likely to rise in the near-future for Ukraine as the country teeters on the brink of revolution. Internally, ongoing resistance to the government's decision to walk away from an Association Agreement with the EU continues to rage on, threatening to spill over into a full-blown revolution. On the foreign-policy front, the country's relationship with Russia has come under pressure of late over the issue of gas imports and Ukraine's EU ambitions. Overshadowing the precarious political situation, the economy remains on the brink of collapse, posing major risks to defence spending in the nearfuture.
