The UV-MULTICAM (Multiple Application UV Camera) for highly reliable, cost effective early detection and accurate localisation of fire project will enable considerable reduction in the damage caused by forest fires and industrial fires. With an excellent consortium including experts in the field of VUV sensors, opto-electronics, integration and industrialisation, we will demonstrate our advanced fire detection system UV-MULTICAM. The results of the FORFIRE R4SME project have delivered significant technical achievement, in establishing the basis for very fast response fire detectors using Ultra-Violet emissions from the seat of the fire. The project achieved successful basic prototype detection device operating in the true solar blind spectral region i.e. <230 nm to minimise false alarms from solar radiation. We believe that the FORFIRE results form the basis of a new generation of advanced fire detection and alarm systems that would greatly improve response times to the outbreak of fire not only outdoors but also indoors in industrial and domestic settings. This will enable us to achieve our goals of improving safety of individuals, reducing environmental damage caused by fires and reducing the enormous costs of fire damage across Europe. Our technology was developed during the FP7 R4SME Project FORFIRE (Grant agreement no FP7-231481) and has shown strong commercial potential. With project costs of 1.1 million including both EC contribution and partner costs, we see an overall return on investment (ROI) of about x 32 within 3 years of project completion. The UV-MULTICAM consortium includes two participants from the original R4SME project, including the SME participants Heron Technologies and Irish Precision Optics.

iBrands Corporation Inc.'s CEO, Michael Ogburn, is pleased to announce that our 1,000 kilo CBD oil deal is going forward as planned. We received our deposit on February 27th and will collect the balance due upon shipment of the product by the middle of March. iBrands is also fielding several calls per day regarding future sale from 100 grams to orders in the "tons." "We have been building the Purest CBD brand for over a year and now it's really starting to pay off," states Ogburn. Ogburn is also a Managing Partner of Lightwave Capital LLC. In the third quarter of 2016, Lightwave owned over 10B shares of iBrands stock. 5 billion of those shares were transferred to another member of management, leaving Lightwave with a little over 5B. Now Lightwave, under the direction of Ogburn, will be retiring 4.5 Billion of those shares or roughly 30% of the issued and outstanding. "5% of something huge, to me, is bigger than 70% of something small," Ogburn states. Lightwave also owns $296,000 in convertible notes that are on the balance sheet. Lightwave will be forfeiting and cancelling those notes. "This is a show of good faith that we are more focused on the future of iBrands. These notes, if converted, would exceed $1,000,000 as of today. We are in this for the long haul and feel the stock is undervalued, and one way to start realizing that value is to have a clean balance sheet," stated Ogburn. Headquartered in Irvine, California, iBrands Corporation, Inc. engages in the manufacturing and distribution of Ultra-Premium Vapor and CBD products that are made in the USA. This press release may contain forward looking statements and or observations which are based on current expectations, forecasts, and assumptions that involve risks as well as uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from those anticipated or expected, including statements related to the amount and timing of expected revenues as well as any payment of dividends on our stock, statements related to our financial performance, expected income, distributions, and future growth for upcoming quarterly and annual periods.

Furthermore, the Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any such forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. We have incurred and will continue to incur significant expenses in our expansion of our existing as well as new product lines noting there is no assurance that we will generate enough revenues to offset those costs. Additional product offerings may expose us to additional legal and regulatory costs and unknown exposure(s) based upon the variables as associated with the general business channel we are operating in, the impact of which cannot be predicted at this time including risks as associated with our product and recent FDA pronouncements.

Mable Fok, an assistant professor of engineering who also leads the university's Lightwave and Microwave Photonics Research Laboratory, received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award to study how photonics can be used to identify and harness unused holes in the radio frequency spectrum. The spectrum is used to keep everything from wireless personal devices like cell phones and computers to medical system technologies and national security defense mechanisms running smoothly. But with the ever-increasing number of technologies relying on the frequencies, space on the spectrum is tight. "Fundamentally, this spectrum is all we have," Fok said. "We cannot create more space. But we can make good use of what we have." All of the applications relying on the spectrum aren't in use around the clock, providing short-lived opportunities for others to use their space on the spectrum. But there currently is no way to rapidly identify which frequencies aren't being used, which is where Fok's research comes in. Fok will use photonics technologies to rapidly scan the spectrum and find frequencies that are not in use. Once identified, those gaps can be used to meet radio frequency needs of various devices. Fok's scheme not only allows the device to talk and listen at the same time using the same frequency, but it also enables the device to be "smart" enough to run away from interference and jamming. Inspired by the glass knifefish, a small electric freshwater family of fish that people sometimes keep as pets in aquariums, Fok's research will create a device to escape from the jamming frequency the same way the fish does. The fish use what's known as a jamming avoidance response, or JAR, to prevent their electromagnetic signals from interfering with those of other knifefish around them. "What if we can borrow the same algorithm and apply it to our radio frequency system?" Fok said. "If someone tries to jam our signal, we'll be able to just move someplace else that no one is using." Fok will also use the NSF grant to help develop an educational app that helps people learn more about the field of photonics. Most people know about fiber optic Christmas trees and high-speed internet, she said, but that's typically where the public's understanding of the emerging technology ends. But photonics offers a smaller, more efficient and less expensive alternative to traditional electronics. For example, electric cables can accommodate, say, 10 people who want to transmit information while optical fiber can service significantly more in less space.

A system including a light source, sampling tray, and at least three detectors mounted at angles with respect to each other receives light reflected from a sample of cannabis-based matter. Light from the three detectors is fed to a spectrometer which converts the reflected light into a fingerprint corresponding to the concentration of at least one substance in the sample. The fingerprint is processed by a statistical model to determine concentration level of the at least one substance in the sample and the concentration level is then displayed.
