  • Bloodhound SSC: Inspiring the next generation of Engineers Pt 1 ... BloodhoundSSC Major Oli Morgan is the Team Leader for the Army s involvement in the Bloodhound SuperSonic Car project. As an Aircraft Engineering Officer in the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers, his technical background on Apache is used to good effect to provide the Bloodhound team with technical advice on Engineering Assurance. In addition to his engineering role, he is also responsible for recruiting each six-month attachment of personnel and managing the team on a day-to-day basis.

    Bloodhound SSC mixes jet engines with children and live circuits Last month the Bloodhound SSC team tested a Typhoon development jet engine using the electronic control system destined for the supersonic car. The test was held at Rolls Royce s test facility and proved the system developed by Joe Holdsworth and REME Avionics WO2 (AQMS) Mark Edwin worked as designed. Joe Holdsworth stands next to the EJ200 engine that will be used in the Bloodhound Super Sonic Car.

    By Stefan Marjoram The unlikely grouping of a former financial software programmer and an Army Avionics Instructor has proven a winning combination. Joe Holdsworth has developed the code with Mark Edwin bringing the concept into reality, building prototype electronics from his knowledge of military aircraft. The pair have created a control system the size of a sandwich box that has allowed the Bloodhound team to control the EJ200 engine as if were wrapped up in an aircraft.

    The development has been no mean feat and has relied on the advice of Rolls Royce technical experts to get around the aircraft engine looking for airspeed, temperature and pressure inputs it s been a challenging project but the pair have been hugely successful. Watch the engine being tested at http://youtu.be/PBJLxSkBNes 1 WO2 (AQMS) Mark Edwin makes final adjustments to the EJ200 control circuits. By Major Oli Morgan 135,000 horse power So, why is this box of tricks so important?

    The Bloodhound SSC team are using one of the smallest most powerful jet engines of its type to get a competitive advantage in order to propel the eight-tonne British Land Speed contender though the sound barrier and beyond. The control system is needed to allow driver (Wg Cdr Andy Green) to throttle the jet engine in conjunction with a bespoke High Test Peroxide Rocket 2 to get Bloodhound SSC to break through the supersonic barrier in South Africa in 2014. The combined power of the jet and rocket system is equivalent to 135,000 hp, six times greater than all of this season s Formula 1 cars on the starting grid!

    Rolls Royce s Colin Smith and Bloodhound SSC Director Richard Noble OBE. By Stefan Marjoram WO2 (AQMS) Mark Edwin has now handed the electronics baton over to SSgt Henry H Breed who was with the newly arrived REME team at Rolls Royce s announcement of their involvement in the project. Colin Smith, Director of Engineering and Technology set out that that Rolls Royce would provide financial and technical support as well as 50 educational ambassadors to support Bloodhound SSC s aim to inspire the next generation of kids into careers in STEM.

    Big Bang Fair At the event I got talking about the way the programming language worked with the EJ200 engine; SSgt H Breed joked that the system could be taken one step further and integrated with a motion controller. This confirmed something that has interested me for sometime the successful control system could be connected to something like an Xbox Kinect to turn the engine on with the wave of a hand. Now I must caveat that the team will be providing Andy Green with a throttle lever, which is much more physical, but it does illustrate the massive potential of technology with a little programming and electronics knowledge.

    That evening my curiosity got the better of me and I spent a night reading more about motion sensing software to find that there are far more kids experimenting with Kinect technology than I had thought! This fact was reinforced at the Big Bang Fair with thousands of engaged kids mad about science and engineering and Bloodhound was there in force with the full sized show car as well as the entire REME team. Motion sensor technology was on display as were robots made by school kids and every kind of science of note was the group from Welbeck Defence Sixth Form College who delivered a super remote controlled all-terrain vehicle and are off to carve out careers in the MoD when they graduate.

    Welbeck Students with REME SSgt Neil Gallagher. Reflecting on Big bang Fair and the Rolls Royce announcement it was evident that there is serious interest in the technology and a sense that young people are much closer to the digital world i.e mobile devices than ever before and they are not scared to experiment. Bloodhound Educational Ambassadors David Willetts MP with kids at the Bloodhound SSC stand at the Big Bang Fair.

    Copyright Harry Dalton The Manufacturer The exam question is: how we harness young people s natural interest in technology and point them towards a career in engineering or science? Seeing the effect of the Bloodhound project on kids who came up to us on the stand in London convinced me that the work the Bloodhound Educational Ambassadors are doing is making a difference the kids knew more about the car than the teachers/parents they dragged over. Next blog (part two) will be straight after this one to make up for a bit of a delay.

    I will introduce the new REME team and the exciting work they be doing as the Bloodhound car comes together in the new Bloodhound Technical Centre in Avonmouth, Bristol. .

  • British Army Hermes 450 UAS Exceed 70,000 Flight Hours in ... Hermes 450 (H-450) unmanned air system The British Army s Hermes 450 (H-450) unmanned air systems have completed over 70,000 hours of surveillance support in Afghanistan. This is the equivalent of 8 years of non-stop flying. Operated by the Theatre Integrated Unmanned Air Systems (ThIUAS) Battery at Camp Bastion, UK forces have clocked up more flying hours than any other nation with H-450 in Afghanistan.

    The system provides headquarters staff with persistent intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance via electro-optical and infrared sensors out to a range of 150 kilometres. H-450 can be used for a wide range of tasks such as reconnaissance of an area prior to operations, and maintaining watch over troops on the ground. Major Jonathan Buxton, ThIUAS Battery Commander, said: It is a great achievement to have reached over 70,000 hours of flying with Hermes 450 which shows not only the importance of the benefits it provides but also the dedication of all those involved in operating them out here in difficult conditions.

    H-450 has been a vital tool for operations in Helmand over the years and continues to provide persistent surveillance protecting UK and Afghan troops today. The ThIUAS Battery operates 5 surveillance windows of H-450 in support of UK and Afghan troops in Helmand province an increase from 2 when H-450 was introduced in 2007. Since that time, integration with ground forces has been developed significantly as has the training for H-450 operators.

    Major Buxton added: The UAS trade offers something different for the more technically minded recruits joining the Army today.

    The H-450 operators course is extremely challenging, with junior soldiers taking on a lot of responsibility at an early stage, especially when looking after the equipment and being responsible for captaincy of the aircraft.

  • British Army takes remote-control of Terrier, the digging-est dog of war The British Army has taken ownership of its first Terrier combat engineer vehicle, which maker BAE Systems claims is the most advanced of its type. The armored vehicle has been described as a Swiss Army Knife for the battlefield, capable of clearing routes or creating cover. Perhaps most significantly, the Terrier is drive-by-wire, and can be controlled remotely with a device very much like a console game pad.

    Terrier's main trick appears to be moving stuff out of the way (or strategically into the way), be it clearing routes or digging trenches for troops on the ground, or hollowing out anti-tank ditches and offensive armored vehicle positions. It's equipped with a hydraulic front bucket and an excavating arm for just such purposes. A "quick-hitch" mechanism allows both the bucket and the excavator to be replaced with other attachments.

    The bucket can be switched to a forklift-type appendage, a "ripper" (to break up roads), or a device capable of clearing mines placed on roads. Alternatives to the excavator include a drill and a gripping, lifting attachment. Terrier's drive-by-wire system means the vehicle is controlled through electronics rather than mechanics.

    Its tracks can be controlled by a pair of joysticks (or thumbsticks) and the digging systems can be operated through Terrier's computer systems. By using five onboard cameras to see, Terrier can be controlled remotely at a range of up to 1 km (0.6 miles) using a device much like a games console control pad, which BAE Systems claims makes control straightforward for new recruits to pick up. The company has also developed full-motion simulators to train onboard crews of two.

    Terrier is equipped with environmental comfort controls and thermal imaging, which supposedly make Terrier suitable for day and night operations in desert or arctic conditions. The vehicle isn't entirely defenseless either, mounted as it is with a machine gun and smoke grenade launcher. Its weight of 32 tonnes makes it transportable by an Airbus A400M 1 or Boeing C-17 Globemaster military transport aircraft.

    Once on the ground, the Terrier can travel at a maximum speed of 70 km/h (43 mph). On the road, it has a range of 600 km (370 miles). The British Army is taking ownership of 60 Terriers, the last of which is due for delivery in January.

    Here's a BAE Systems video of Terrier in action.

  • Campaign to secure 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards gathering pace Defence Minister Philip Hammond Comments (0) 1 D-DAY is looming for the future of Wales's under- threat tank regiment. Campaigners will be taking their petition battle by tank from Parliament Square to No.

    10 Downing Street on Thursday ahead of a decision on the future of 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards (The Welsh Cavalry). A series of meetings were held with MPs yesterday over fears the regiment could be either axed or merged.

    Welsh MPs, including Conservative David Davies MP for Monmouthshire, and Dai Havard, Labour MP for Merthyr and Rhymney, have written directly to Defence Minister Philip Hammond ahead of the announcement. Supporters of the regiment have won cross-party support for their campaign. Richard Goldsbrough, who is a former captain with the Welsh Cavalry, has urged MPs in Wales to lobby Prime Minister David Cameron on the issue.

    He said it was a political rather than an Army decision and said he believed plans to merge the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards had already been overturned. "Wales should be confident that, with her votes having the same face value as those north of the border, she will be treated with the same consideration as Scotland and her QDG will be saved," he said. "It's now up to Welsh politicians to convince David Cameron to intervene on behalf of Wales this week as he has done for Scotland." The Government is looking to reduce the Army from 100,000 to 82,000 soldiers by the end of 2020 under its Future Force 2020 plan. It is also understood that one battalion of the Royal Welsh is also at risk of being cut. A decision on the future of the regiment had originally been expected from ministers before MPs left Westminster for recess.

    But campaigners believe their political support in Wales has already succeeded in delaying an announcement until Thursday.

    Huw Longmore, press officer for the Save the Welsh Cavalry campaign, said: "There is a meeting on Thursday with the Welsh Office. "At the moment we have 2,147 signatures on the petition we have been doing a big push over the last campaign. "I think we could get 5,000 signatures. "We have a tank to promote the campaign and take the petition to Downing Street. "We are happy that the Government has realised it's an issue of our Welsh identity and regimental identity." He said he believed it was possible that plans to either merge or axe the regiment, whose Colonel in Chief is Prince Charles, could be scrapped. "There is a good chance that the proposals will be overturned better than a few weeks ago," he added. "That's largely to do with the cross-party support from MPs. "The Labour Party came to the cause first, we have had support from Plaid, the Lib Dems and the Conservatives. "I would urge people to please sign the petition within the next few days."

  • Cold War Gamer: ReviewThis is a MOD operated web site and does what it says on the tin pretty much. It lists every unit that has been part of the British Army since 1945. These are accessed through selecting the Arm of Service, you can then select from a list of unit titles and access data on the units operational, organisational and geographic deployment history.

    So simply put between dates Unit X was part of Y Brigade and based in VWX it deployed between dates to A,B, C operations. The format can make generating brigade orbats a bit laborious although Brigade Name and Unit Title will return hits from google. It also helps if you understand what units were active in your period of interest, so you are not having to look at them all, as given the number of amalgamations and title changes since the end of the War there are a lot of units listed.

    It took me about an hour to check the Cold War Infantry Battalions to generate a list of the units in 19 Brigade, from an Infantry perspective. The data for RA units and RE units is less well defined against formations but home stations and operational deployments are quite well covered. To some extent the problem is more difficult here as single batteries , squadrons and regiments might have a variety of relationships with different formations having: administrative relationships current operational relationships wartime roles.

    As well as generating lists of what units were in what formations at what times it's also handy for checking data and in that respect it's easier to consume so if you believe that x unit was in y formation at date its relatively easy to check if the data is there. I have assumed that as it's published by the MOD it has a degree of accuracy that other resources may lack, the assumption being it's generated from their own records. As I have found their can be a level of ambiguity between planned and actual deployments so as ever the source data is important in this respect.

    Whilst not that user friendly due to the structure of the data and the fact that you can only view it from one perspective it is never the less an extremely valuable web resource for any one interested in the post war history of the British Army and provides a time efficient route to validating and generating data compared to what was available previously.

    Equally once you know what units were where or serving in what formation it becomes a lot easier to track down what the unit and formations were up to through a variety of regimentaly focused resources: Regimental Museums Regimental Magazines Regimental History Web sites Regimental association web sites Regimental facebook pages all of which contain a remarkable amount of information although sometimes a degree of persistence is required to get to the bottom of a problem.

  • Commander's dashboard to address soldier suicides -- Defense ... Commander's dashboard to address soldier suicides By Defense Systems Staff Dec 17, 2012 In response to an increase in soldier suicides, the Army will introduce in February a first-generation online software application called the Commander's Risk Reduction Dashboard (CRRD), which will consolidate information from multiple Army databases and present to commanders a concise report about soldiers who were involved with at-risk behaviors, some of which may be associated with suicide. Reports generated by the CRRD will be used by commanders to make decisions on how best to help soldiers through intervention activities, according to an article published by the Army News Service. "We know that commanders are concerned with the health and well-being of their units," said Donna Clouse, risk reduction program manager, Army Center for Substance Abuse Programs, Army G1, quoted in the Army News Service article. "And so the intent of this dashboard is to display data to enable commanders to make informed decisions about intervention strategies, and assist in helping commanders respond earlier to the warning signs." The first-generation CRRD is being developed by the Army's Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) at the request of the Army's G-1 Deputy Chief of Staff office, with a fuller solution planned for about two years from now, according to the article. The interim CRRD will highlight for commanders at company and battalion levels instances where soldiers have displayed any of 14 critical risk factors that could indicate they could be at risk, such as positive drug tests, crimes against persons or property, alcohol offenses, or domestic violence. "The CRRD is going to help commanders recognize trends in soldiers who may be at risk and alert them to any incidents for both current and new soldiers coming into the installation," said Crystal Chadwick, CRRD project lead with the Software Engineering Center at CECOM, in the Army News Service article.

    The CRRD will allow commanders to evaluate a soldier's history inside a single unit, or across multiple units, which can be especially important when a soldier with a history of high-risk behaviors transitions into a new unit.

    Developers of the CRRD say the next version of the software will include an algorithm that leads to an assessment system to identify soldiers who need immediate support. "We hope to be able to build upon and expand the dashboard in the full solution," said Clouse in the article. "We think that once the algorithm comes out and we gather additional information about high risk behaviors from Army Public Health Command and others involved in the Army Study to Assess Risk and Resilience in Service members program, we will be able to scale the full solution to fit the needs of commanders."

Monday, November 12, 2012, 01:55 PM - News Stories Have you seen the brutal videos and photos from Syria?

    Have you found yourself sympathizing for one side or the other? You may have been fooled. An article that appeared in the GlobalPost today has a good analysis on many of the fake disturbing videos that have been circulating on the internet, which are assumed to be from Syria, but really aren't.

    The sham videos can have very real effects, creating sympathy for one side or the other. Last week, the United Nations accused the rebels of war crimes, based on a YouTube video of fighters executing prisoners. This type of atrocity makes intervention less appealing to the West.

    While that video appears to have been real, many other bogus ones have found their way onto major television networks in the United States and beyond, and are spread widely by social media. It s not uncommon for the two sides to use the same footage to make opposite claims. To have a look at some of the most viewed fake videos, go to GlobalPost.

At its peak, the blog reached over 3,000 page views per day according to Corcoran, but he also says interest in the blog had been waning since passing the 1 million hits a year ago. He attributes the waning interest to war fatigue by the news media and the American public.

    Corcoran discusses the highs and lows of the blog in a story that was published in The New York Times yesterday. I m a realist and I m fully aware that after so many years it is hard for people to continue to care deeply about a conflict that doesn t seem to have any end goal or sense of mission. So a few weeks ago, I decided I would stop the blog after the election. (I m leaving the door open just a bit to a last-minute change of heart.) If I do stop posting, however, I intend to keep it on the Internet as a historical reference for anyone interested in the Iraq and Afghan wars.

    There have been many gratifying moments. One involved a woman who wrote me after I had posted a video of a firefight in Afghanistan that included her son. She said that she had not heard from him in weeks and that she was thrilled to be able to see him in the video.

    She went on to tell me what a wonderful job I was doing for all the military families who felt as she did, that the media had let them down in its coverage of the Afghan war. Full story here.

    Blake Powers (aka The Laughing Wolf ) back in September, he had just published a post telling readers he would tell them more about what it takes to do an embed. Earlier this week Powers posted a new story called Preparing For An Embed: Getting Started that talks about the first step. Powers writes on the military blog Blackfive: The first step in any embed is a journalistic outlet.

    All embeds are journalistic embeds. Period. Dot.

    They are not for morale, they are not for sightseeing, and they are not for cooking or other culinary endeavors. Trust me, I spent a couple of months earlier this year trying to set something up for a chef who wanted to go cook for the troops, and despite my efforts and those of two very helpful people in DoD, no go, not even in conjunction with a real embed. Now, that is not to say that an embed can't chose to do something once there if the unit approves, but that is not a valid reason for an embed and won't help your cause in applying.

    Embeds are for journalism and journalism only. Keep in mind that blogs (even milblogs) don't have the clout or prestige they once did and that there does still seem to be an institutional bias towards "real" media in some circles. More here.

    Various social marketing campaigns and advertising campaigns have been proved to be effective in changing people s knowledge, attitudes, as well as behaviors related to nutrition. Interesting, while it is true that most of these programs require substantial financial support, research also suggests that to include nutrition or health-related messages in entertainment programs on mass media will be cost-effective and promising. One good example will be the research done by Valente et al, who were researchers from the University of Southern California.

    After consultation with a CDC expert, the scriptwriter of the popular medical show ER (Emergency Room) came up with a storyline of an obese low-income Africa American teenager boy who had been diagnosed with hypertension during his visit to the emergency room. The storyline covered three episodes of ER, and discussed hypertension, obese, heart disease, 5 A Day (a nutrition concept which encourages people to consume five portions of fruits and vegetables each day), healthy eating habits, and life style. Valente examined people s health/nutrition-related knowledge, attitudes, and behavior before and after the air of the three episodes of ER.

    And the results showed that , this minor storyline on ER about teen obesity, hypertension, and 5 A Day led to modest positive impacts on people s knowledge, attitudes, and practices. In general, after watching those 3 episodes of ER, people gained higher awareness and knowledge of 5 A Day, and were reported to engage in some self-reported health behaviors. Since the cost of this intervention can be considered minimal , the modest changes in people indicate the cost-effectiveness of this particular intervention.

    This research does provide a new insight into the effects of mass media, especially mass entertainment programs, on the public, and high light the promising future of the cost-effective mass media/entertainment program intervention on people s knowledge, attitudes, as well as behaviors related to nutrition/health field .

Pierce and Shirley get into an argument over who should get to sign off as the official owner of the shop, as it was Shirley who had the idea and did all the work, while Pierce financed 100% of it.

    Shirley asks Jeff for help convincing Pierce but Jeff is annoyed because he wants to study for his biology final (the episode takes place at the end of the summer school term). Pierce threatens to sue if Shirley signs as the owner, and the Dean suggests letting them have the case in the school's court with him as the Judge, with Jeff agreeing to be Shirley's lawyer from 3-4 PM, as the biology final starts at 5PM. The court starts with Dean Pelton presiding, and Jeff is surprised to see that Pierce has hired his rival Alan (Rob Corddry]) as the opposing counsel.

    During the case, Alan, having replaced Ted as manager of the firm (poor Ted literally went swimming with sharks and they ate him), tells Jeff that if he doesn't throw the case then he will make it impossible for him to return to the firm after he graduates. Shirley then surprises Jeff by saying she put him in an unfair position and jeopardized his professional future, then giving him the OK to tank her case. As Jeff is about to withdraw, he realises - and makes a speech about - how helping others is more important than helping ourselves.

  • From Soldier to Student to Student Leader Guest Blogger: Paul Escajadillo Business school is as much about the journey as it is about the ultimate destination. To that end, over the last 10 months, my classmates and I have all been working hard to balance 4 competing categories of activities: academics, recruiting, social/club events, and our personal lives. The beauty (and frustration during core classes) of Fuqua s 6-week terms is how little time we have to meet the rigorous demands of all these categories.

    We all learn (or are forced to learn) disciplined time management and make tradeoffs because overlapping events will inevitably occur. I had to learn what was most important to me: one extra hour of studying, preparing for an interview, or getting ready for date night with my wife. As she can attest, I didn t always pick the right one.

    After the summer and two fall terms, we were mostly done with core classes (leaving only Operations in Spring 1), and could focus on pursuing the electives and club leadership opportunities that interested us most while winding down our internship hunts. However, amidst the chaos that was Fall 1, I saw an opportunity for a future role that would best encapsulate why I enrolled in the Fuqua School of Business. Transitioning out of 7 years in the U.S.

    Army (as an enlisted man, no less), I knew I needed a rigorous foundation for business. I wanted to exit my comfort zone and immerse myself in the necessary elements to effectively implement successful business strategies, which more often than not have become global. The China Global Academic Travel Experience (GATE) 1 seemed like the ideal elective: 6 weeks of classes followed by 2 weeks in the country.

    Why China? Well, while China s export and import growth have recently slowed down from their unsustainable double digit increases, it is still the country to study when thinking about global business opportunities. A recent PwC report 2 stated China is projected to overtake the US as the largest economy by 2017 in purchasing power parity (PPP) terms and by 2027 in market exchange rate terms.

    I knew I wanted to learn as much as I could about the country, both from an academic and personal perspective. But I didn t just want to learn: I wanted to lead. During my time in the Army, I was blessed enough to deploy multiple times and always return safely with those Soldiers under my care.

    I worked in a variety of positions and deployed to the countries of Ecuador, Colombia, and twice to Afghanistan. I wanted to complement real world leadership experience with the opportunity to travel to a continent I had not visited, while leading my fellow classmates to better understand and explore the business, economy, culture, and politics of a foreign country. Paul s team at the entrance to the Great Wall of China.

    So, I applied to be a GATE Team Leader. As one member of a 5-person Team Leader group (Carson Rockett, Camden Yumori, Jessica Dennis, and Ben Markowitz round out the group), I was excited for Spring II to start. Prior to the trip, most of our duties revolved around preparing for the actual class with our professors ( Jeannete Song 3 and Dan Vermeer 4 ), and enlisting companies to host our 90+ students during our 2-week visit.

    It was rewarding work to see how family, friends, and strangers came together to help us in our quest. Now, during the actual visit, our jobs focused on the logistics of moving and maintaining accountability of 90+ students not just to and from different company and cultural visits, but also 4 different cities (Beijing, Chongqing, Chengdu, and Shanghai). Looking back, GATE truly represents the best opportunity for student leadership combined with academics.

    In order to better tailor the visit I designed a survey for the registered students. My fellow team leaders and I were very pleased to see we had great representation from the major career tracks ( consulting 5 , finance 6 , marketing 7 , general management 8 , and healthcare 9 ), but were actually surprised to learn that the most requested industry to visit was not electronics or energy, but the Chinese government. While we were unable to comply with this request, we were able to schedule a briefing by the U.S.

    Consulate in Chengdu, along with visits to Lenovo, Tsingua University, Coca-Cola, Changan Ford, New Oriental Education Company, the NBA, Wangjiang Industrial Co., P&G, Bloomberg, SanDisk, Wells Fargo, the Panda Breeding Research Center, GSK, and the Chengdu Airport Authority.

    Ultimately, what we each desired to obtain from the trip was incredibly personal, but I think it can best be encapsulated by this anonymous respondent s quote from our survey: A better understanding of China and its past, as well as its expected future.

  • How an Army man turned entrepreneur is trying to capitalize the ... The other day, I was buying an online gift for my friend and the thought of the same experience 10 years ago flashed by. You d have to go to a shop, look for things that your friend might like, spend time deliberating what to go ahead with and finally getting something giftwrapped. I don t suppose I will remember my online transaction 10 years later, but that s how it is; gifting has been made easier and in the process, less memorable.

    But when you look at gifting as a market, it s huge 1 and why not! Users will pay for convenience; it delights them. The developed world has already adopted these options at scale.

    With respect to Asia, the growth curve of any industry that originated from the US lags the rest of the world by a few years. Alistair Gordon 2 was well aware of this. After having scaled a telecom business based out of Hong Kong to 2000 employee corpus from it s inception stage, he s now back with another startup in the prepaid gifting solutions space, ValuAccess 3 .

    The company operates across Asia, including countries like Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia, UAE and India and runs gift card and loyalty programmes for retail players. They design, implement, operate and sell these sophisticated programmes. But behind this high growth startup, is an interesting story of a British army man turned startup specialist turned entrepreneur - From army man to entrepreneur Alistair Gordon In his early life, Alistair was a signaler with the British Army.

    He says that he always knew that he wouldn t stay in the army forever. He says, Just before leaving, one piece of sound advice that I got was to join a company that is just about to grow. This company would be Hong Kong based Shell Mobile, which he joined a day after it got it s mobile license.

    He says, We scaled that company from 15 people to 2000 in a few short years. It s just one of those things you either want to build something or you like the comfortable corporate job. I am the former.

    Mind you, I had no specific skills and it was a lot of on the job training for me. I understood the strength of prepaid in the Asian region and thought it can be leveraged in the gifting space. Although Alistair is from a telecom space, he believes that it has some very crucial similarities between the two sectors.

    He says, It s still an addition and subtraction transaction. Furthermore, it s a lot more simple as you don t have to worry about things like roaming etc. I always had the bug of wanting to do something of my own and I gave this a shot, in early 2006.

    The opportunity Alistair had just come off a stint as an early employee with Hong Kong based Shell Mobile, when he began to see some trends in the Gifting in Asia. He says, When we started this, prepaid gift cards didn t exist. It was all prepaid vouchers.

    This is how it was in the economies that have adopted gift cards in past. They migrated from manual to electronic transactions because it was safer and there was a lot more control over it. Currently ValuAccess has signed up 75 brands on their gift card and loyalty platform and Alistair believes that this number will increase with more industry key category players and many more taking to the electronic medium.

    He says, When these market leaders make the conversions, the next rung of guys make the change as well and it trickles down from there. This is exactly how it happened in London. When the first gift card came out 73 retailers took to it.

    The next two years, this number increased to only 500. However, the next year saw an exponential leap in adoption with many thousands of retailers taking to electronic gift cards. I believe we will see a similar sort of growth in Asia as well.

    Alistair shared that their Hong Kong is currently their biggest revenue earner, as the company is headquartered there. However, he believes that India presents the biggest opportunity because of it s sheer market size. He also added that markets like China would be hard to crack into owing to a mature retailer environment.

    He says, The adoption that we re seeing in the gift card space is very encouraging and it s only going to grow. The mass market of customer loyalty is also growing, which is always a good sign. Generally, people are getting more smart.

    After all, it is a very effective way of increasing their sales. The power of and data Gifting and loyalty solutions have always played an important role in the organized retail sector. Alistair broke it down from a retailer s perspective All retailers want to increase their revenues and there are mainly 3 levers for that.

    You get more customers or get your customers to come more often or get your existing customers to buy more from you. Along with gifting and loyalty solution, I believe that there is a huge move towards influence by data which will contribute to these three levers. For example, if you have a cappuccino every day in the morning, we can suggest the owner of the cafe to provide that customer with an offer of a free doughnut for a week.

    This more often than not becomes a habit for that customer by the end of the offer, there s a good chance that the customer might buy a doughnut from the next week on, shares Alistair. He further shared that ValuAccess spends a lot of time engaging with their customers and employ big data analytics tools to make real time inferences from their various data sources. Gifting is for organized retail only When asked about the penetration of gifting into retail players in the tier 2 and tier 3 cities of India, Alistair says, Gifting has always associated itself with brands of aspiration.

    Now if a there s a gift card about a brand that doesn t have an aspirational value to it, then the card has failed at it s job. We re mainly looking at partnering with large, nationwide players. Having said that, there are players with a large regional influence.

    They are interesting, but long story short, my world is organized retail. Are you in the organized retail space?
