29-30 April, Olympia, London
Press Release – 04th February 2014
Taking place on the 29th and 30th April at Olympia, London, Forensics Europe Expo 2014 is set to be this year’s premier international forum dedicated to the entire forensics sector and its supply chain. Last year, the event introduced over 3000 buyers and specifiers to the latest forensic products, equipment and services as well as providing a definitive source of education and best practice together with unparalleled access to training and networking opportunities.
Organised by Clarion Events, Forensics Europe Expo will once again be co-located with Counter Terror Expo 2014, ensuring maximum marketing exposure before, during and after the event and creating an invaluable cross-flow of information. Supporting the exhibition, Forensics Europe will also feature a high level conference programme designed to attract hard-to-reach decision makers and thought leaders from both the public and private forensic arena, making the event an ideal platform for the launch of new products and cutting edge technologies.
President of The Forensic Science Society, Dr Ann Priston, commented: “As the largest professional body of forensic practitioners in the UK, it is fitting that we should be represented at Forensic Europe Expo which will not only offer valuable insights into the latest developments in forensic science but also provide an important networking opportunity for those working in areas where forensic science is having a real impact.
“Our role at this year’s event is particularly significant as we have just been granted a Royal Charter and we will be exhibiting under our new name, The Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, and we have chosen to launch at the Expo because it is such a high profile industry event.
“The Workshop programme is certain to feature some fascinating insights into new areas where the expertise of scientists is driving standards in investigation and furthering knowledge. In particular, digital forensics is likely to be widely covered at this year’s exhibition. This is a fascinating and fast-moving field, involving the fight against cyber crime and other challenges that our virtual world is now presenting to law enforcers.”
Another key supporter of Forensics Europe Expo is The Forensic and Policing Services Association (FAPSA). Allan Scott, MD of The Evidence Partnership, one of the founding members of FAPSA, said:
“Clarion Events have been supportive of our aims of giving SMEs a voice in the forensic and policing market whilst also ensuring that quality is maintained. We’re confident that the event will enable us to explain our ethos and our full range of services to prospective members and show how smaller organisations can make a significant contribution in the criminal justice arena.”
Philip Hunter, Event Director, Clarion Defence & Security added: “Forensics Europe Expo has already established its place as the leading event for the entire forensics sector. With an exciting new programme of content, this year’s show promises to offer the best opportunities yet for important new collaborations and business relationships to be established.”

SIMULATION experts from NSC have answered a call-to-arms to provide the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory with a synthetic environment in which to explore means of improving maritime marksmanship.
Employing game-based technology, NSC has been awarded a contract to develop a ship-mounted general purpose machine gun (GPMG) simulator for use in trials to investigate novel training methods for Royal Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary personnel.
The innovative system – the first in the UK to utilise the latest version of Virtual Battlespace 2 – puts users’ fingers on the trigger of a deactivated GPMG as action unfolds on a three-metre radius curved screen.
With compressed air providing realistic haptic feedback and hidden electronics tracking the weapon’s every move, operators are exposed to engagements in an immersive surround sound, high-definition environment. The portable simulator is capable of replicating scenarios ranging from defending against attacks from small, fast-moving vessels and supporting anti-piracy missions to port-based security taskings.
Environmental factors are also accounted for with weather conditions, solar glare, surface reflections and spray all affecting visibility and weapon performance.
NSC is a world-class provider of cutting-edge simulation and analysis-driven training. Since its formation in 1991, the company has forged a reputation for developing and delivering innovative solutions for military and civilian customers around the globe.

Salient Commercial Solutions Introduces Two New Assure6™ Products to Detect and Block IPv6-based Malicious Attacks — Press Release
Filed under: Business Line, Companies, development program, Events, IT, logistics, Press Releases, security
Company Expanding Existing Assure6™ Product Line to Include Assure6™/4000 and Assure6™/2000 in Support of Higher Performance Bandwidth
FAIRFAX, Va., April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Salient Commercial Solutions, Inc. (Salient), a Salient Federal Solutions Company providing information technology and engineering solutions in the cyber security and agile development commercial markets, today announced two new cyber security solutions to its patent pending Assure6™ product line designed to prevent, detect, and block IPv6 malicious attacks through IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
The new Assure6™/4000 will utilize CloudShield’s Deep Packet Processing technology on the CS4000 to strengthen IPv6 security and mitigate risks operating at increased throughputs up to 10Gbps. The new Assure6™/2000, for CloudShield Deep Packet Processing technology on the CS2000, will provide enhanced Policy Manager features and Log Viewer for event viewing.
Federal and commercial networks are becoming more and more saturated at the typical current one Gigabit per second bandwidth (Gbps). Salient is enhancing its technology to support agencies that are in the process of upgrading bandwidth capabilities within the next 18 months to accommodate up to 10Gbps. Significant throughput increase will result in an escalation of threats and risks that go beyond solutions designed for 1Gbps. Salient, building upon the successful deployment of Assure6™, is prepared to address the growing number of federal and commercial agencies that will need to do the same and help mitigate IPv6 risks operating at increased throughputs up to 10Gbps.
“IPv6 vulnerabilities continue to be a stealth threat, going unmonitored and undetected,” says Dr. Bob Friedenberg, Chief Technology Officer of Salient. “As agencies and enterprises are required to expand their Ethernet bandwidth to handle the massive amount of Internet traffic and big data, this will leave an even larger hole for cybercriminals to do harm. Providing Assure6™ on CloudShield technology enhances our ability to secure information regardless of traffic type and volume, so we can mitigate customers’ exposure.”
Assure6™ is the most trusted intrusion prevention and detection system that safeguards IPv6 traffic. It is the only platform providing the level of protection necessary to safely deploy or block IPv6 traffic in your network. Assure6™ identifies IPv6 traffic that is tunneled through existing IPv4 networks preventing the covert use of IPv6 communications. It enables a safe and secure transition from IPv4 to IPv6 by detecting and preventing known as well as new security threats.
