Similarly, any significant relevant offences committed by a person within licensed premises at a time when a designated match is being televised, will be applicable for consideration of making a Football Banning Order against the person.“Police Scotland officers have already made visits to licensed premises to remind staff of their licensing conditions and to offer safety advice.  Officers on Sunday are fully aware of those premises where the game is being screened and patrols will be directed accordingly.Other measures have been taken by Police Scotland to address local risks, such asKnown violent offenders in Dumfries and Galloway who may cause disorder on the day have been identified and visited.Known domestic abuse offenders who may be considered likely to offend in response to the match result have been identified and visited, and we will ensure that victims of such abuse receive the support, protection and reassurance they deserve. We have taken a proactive stance to work with publicans to remind them of their responsibilities and encourage good practice.Licensed premises will be visited to assess the likelihood for trouble and to target trouble makers.We will have an increased presence and visibility across the region to monitor and address the conduct of those travelling to and from the match.We will be robustly policing the afternoon and night-time economy to tackle the potential for disorder associated with the match.“We also need local supporters to understand the wider consequences of their actions if becoming involved in football-related disorder.  Offenders don’t necessarily need to attend the game to attract a Football Banning Order if convicted for a football related offence, and we will assess circumstances closely and purse all legal avenues to prevent future offending.“The up-shot is that we want our local communities and football supporters to be able to enjoy the game safely and responsibly, but sadly it is often the small minority who spoil the occasion for others.  These are the people whose behaviour we will seek to address.”last_img read more

This is the first of its seven calls to Dominica for the 2015/2016 cruise season. Britannia is a cruise liner constructed by Fincantieri for the UK cruise line Peninsular and Oriental (P&O) Cruises. P&O Cruises is owned by Carnival Group, the world’s biggest cruise ship operator. This £500m (approximately $825m) investment has a passenger capacity of 4324 and 1389 crew members.

Its gross tonnage capacity is 141,000 ft.The cruise ship features 15 passenger decks comprising 1,819 passenger cabins, which are categorized into suites, deluxe balcony cabins, outside and balcony cabins, inside cabins and 27 single inside cabins.To mark the Ship’s inaugural call, a Welcome Ceremony to include plaque exchange will take place aboard the ship at 10:00am. Government Officials and tourism stakeholders will be present to officially welcome the ship’s captain and crew. A total of one hundred and seventy four (174) cruise calls are projected for the cruise season. This translates to approximately 290,000 passengers.

first_imgLeading expert on SAR and radar image processing, IMSAR, and RF design and additive manufacturing company, Optisys, have partnered to create a small-Size, low-Weight, and low-Power (SWaP) radar designed specifically for use on High Altitude, Long Endurance (HALE) platforms. The high-altitude radar system is made possible by combining Optisys’s ability to miniaturize antenna arrays through 3D printing and IMSAR’s military-proven radar technology.IMSAR’s high-altitude radar is based on its existing, low-SWaP NanoSAR C technology, which provides the foundation for its Commercial, Off-the-Shelf (COTS) NSP-3, NSP-5 and NSP-7 airborne radar systems. The high-altitude radar is capable of multiple modes of operation from over 60,000 feet Above Ground Level and is designed to operate continuously in stratospheric environments.To allow IMSAR’s high-altitude radar to operate within the stringent SWaP requirements of HALE platforms, Optisys created a single array that combines multiple horns, waveguide combiners, mounting structures, and thermal features. The Optisys array reduces the parts required for the aperture by 94% and sufficiently reduces the space and weight required for the radar system to allow the radar to integrate into HALE platforms that were previously unable to carry radar sensors. The low-loss 3D aluminum array also allows for additional reductions in system power requirements to improve mission longevity.According to Larry Moore, Vice President of Sales at IMSAR, combining IMSAR’s low SWAP NanoSAR radar with the novel printed aluminum antenna array from Optisys has yielded an exquisite new class of radar designed for HALE aircraft. The use of this radar on HALE platforms allows for continued surveillance where multiple aircraft or satellites were needed previously. This provides unrivaled agility in imagery collection and time on station.IMSAR is a privately owned research, development, and manufacturing company located in Springville, UT, that specializes in lightweight, low-power Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) devices and radar image processing. The first version of IMSAR’s NanoSAR system was developed in 2008. Since then, the company has continued to enhance the capability and reduce the size of its flagship radar system.Optisys is a privately-owned RF design and additive manufacturing company located in West Jordan, UT. It designs, manufactures, and tests highly integrated antenna structures that achieve the lightest weight and smallest volume physically possibly. The designs include single-band parabolic antennas, passive or active low-profile arrays, and multi-band solutions –including filters, switches, and tracking networks.last_img read more
