SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Earthquake warning systems
Israel is installing a tsunami warning system along its Western coast at Ashdod, Hadera and Haifa. It is also installing a 120-sensor earthquake early-warning system in the East, adjacent to the Great Rift Valley. Both systems are expected to be operational by 2019.
Protecting trains from cyber-attack
Israeli startup Cylus is developing technology to protect railway and metro systems from cyber-attack. Its solution enables rail companies to detect cyber-attacks in their operational network (including signaling systems and rolling stocks) and block attackers before they can cause any damage.
Satellite broadband for Australia
Israel’s Gilat Satellite Networks reported that its satellite platform has been selected by NBN and Speedcast to provide broadband services to businesses and government customers across Australia, especially remote areas. The deal is worth tens of millions of dollars spread over several years.
A new sanitation system
Israeli startup Soapy has set-up simple hygiene stations in Bagepalli, India to provide children with hand-washing facilities in rural areas and slums where there is no running water. The station takes water from the air, adds soap and dispenses the cleaning solution 24/7.
