Durabook’s Rugged Computers Have Played a Pivotal Role to Help Further the Coral Reef Research Foundation’s Mission in Western Pacific

Press Release updated: Aug 27, 2020 10:22 PDT


Durabook Americas, Inc., a leading manufacturer of rugged computing solutions, has been honored to be playing an active part in the work done by Coral Reef Research Foundation (CRRF) in Palau in the tropical western Pacific. The non-profit corporation has been depending on Durabook rugged laptops for over 14 years in a variety of research and educational projects it is conducting on the diverse reefs and marine environments of the island nation of Palau.

“The CRRF has been using the Durabook rugged laptops since 2006 because they stand up to the many challenges of hot, humid, and difficult tropical conditions,” commented Patrick L. Colin, CRRF co-founder and director. “Our work often involves long pounding trips across rough ocean in small boats, throwing computers into backpacks for hikes across rugged islands and then expecting them to work perfectly in a hot, sun-baked and dripping tropical environment. Durabooks have been up to the challenges and, most recently, we have added their newest rugged laptop, the S15AB, which was customized to meet our unique requirements for our marine lake projects and Campbell Scientific weather station.”

The Coral Reef Research Foundation does original research to acquire the knowledge needed to understand and make intelligent decisions about conservation, climate change, and resource management.

CRRF’s programs are oriented towards:

1) The dynamics of the marine environment as they relate to conservation decisions

2) The limits of species’ diversity, community distribution, and biogeography

3) Monitoring with respect to short-to-long-term environmental and climate changes

“We are thrilled that Durabook has been able to provide support to CRRF in their research efforts and to solve their computing challenges,” stated Tom Wang, Durabook Americas’ president. “As a diver myself, I have had the privilege to visit Jellyfish Lake and Palau Blue Holes, and understand the importance of the work done by the CRRF to conserve and monitor our Pacific Ocean.”

CRRF is based out of the Republic of Palau, an island country in the western Pacific, consisting of approximately 340 islands in a 180-square-mile area. Its eight full-time staff members work with visiting scientists and many long-time scientific collaborators globally. Together, it has unique knowledge of coral reefs and all aspects of marine environments. It studies the tiniest to largest marine organisms, surveys from the shallows to depths of 1,000 feet, and is involved in pure biology and ecology to enhance public awareness and make pertinent recommendations.

ABOUT CORAL REEF RESEARCH FOUNDATION

CRRF was started in 1991 by a group of marine scientists dedicated to research and education on coral reefs and other tropical marine environments. It has specialized in high-quality environmental research in Palau and other geographic areas over the past 25 years. CRRF’s work for the prestigious U.S. National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) marine collections enabled it to pursue one of its goals of documenting marine biodiversity throughout the Indo-Pacific, allowing a description of nearly 200 new species of marine life, while also pursuing a broad spectrum of other research. It is both a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation in the U.S. and a chartered Palauan non-profit organization. Donations made in both countries are tax-deductible according to the laws of the respective countries. For more information, visit https://coralreefpalau.org.

About G-SHOCK

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure.

Following a successful Kickstarter release, the highly anticipated Quantum Q-Server and Q-Clients have been well received by its backers.

Press Release updated: Nov 24, 2020 07:16 PST


Quantum Integration, following a successful Kickstarter campaign for its complete Internet of Things (IoT) platform for hobby enthusiasts, has announced that its Quantum IoT platform has been well received by early supporters. Earning praise for its ease of use, versatility and the control it provides users without coding knowledge, the Quantum IoT platform is ideal for those with the passion to create wireless projects.

The Quantum IoT platform was designed from the ground up for novices and experts alike to give users the freedom and control to create without learning complex coding languages. “I’ve purchased a few different Arduino and Raspberry Pi kits during the last year for my own learning and for teaching my kids how to be builders and creators,” according to John A., in a recent testimonial. “While each platform has different strengths and weaknesses, the Quantum Q-Server and Q-Clients are great because they allow you to start building projects in less than an hour with no coding required and no need to install complex development tools.”

“But what really makes the Quantum platform unique is that these are Internet-enabled and wireless-enabled projects. This not only allows your Q-Clients to communicate wirelessly with each other, but you can also control and interact with the Q-Clients through your web browser.” This means users have the potential to develop a powerful IoT network, controlling things like remote temperature sensors, automated and smart home projects, and even robots.

He goes on to add, “While it is possible to accomplish similar results with Arduino and Raspberry Pi, it would take weeks or months to learn the skills and write the code to accomplish the same thing on these other platforms that can be done in minutes or hours on the Quantum platform.” With the Quantum IoT platform, users can get to building quicker than ever before, developing their own automations, firmware, and apps.

The Quantum IoT platform enables electronics hobbyists to create wireless devices from a simple button to home automation and robots, and control it with custom apps and firmware without coding, all through a central server.
