New Actisense logo
signals different direction
Actisense has introduced a redesign of its logo to reflect a change in the com- pany’s direction. In 2016, Actisense
plans to move into several new markets, including commercial marine and projects in South America.
Central to the rebrand is the iconic ‘A’ in Actisense’s previous logo. The company says the ‘A’ has been redesigned to include a distinctive swoosh on its right
leg. The new look will enable the ‘A’ to stand out as a motif on its own, to be
used as a standalone logo.
“This rebrand marks where we currently are as a brand,” said CEO Lesley
Keets. “The company is going through a transitional stage as we are moving into
several significant new markets in the next year. As such, the aim of the rebrand
is to symbolize the forward momentum of our company as we step into a significant new stage for Actisense.”
Wave WiFi changes hands
l Behrendt, owner and CEO of Geosat Solutions, has announced that as
of Sept. 1 Wave WiFi has new owners—Jeff and Elaine Graham. “We see
this change of ownership as an opportunity for Wave WiFi to achieve
even greater successes with increased investment, innovative product development, technical support and distributor/reseller support,” said Behrendt.
The Grahams founded JTECH Communications, Inc., which led a then-emerging “on-premise communication market” with wireless solutions resulting
in annual sales exceeding $20 million.
“Al and his team’s track record and successes met all of our search criteria.”
Poseidon aircraft to be equipped
said the new owners. “We are excited about what we see as a rock-solid base
from which we can expand the product offerings and capabilities, bringing
exciting results for the end user as well as our in-house team members and dis-
Geosat has patents unrelated to WiFi that are licensed to other companies
and will remain as a shell company.

The case of the missing zeros
The article in the Sept/Oct MEJ entitled RTCM Report contains, to
