INCREASED EFFICIENCIES, SAFETY AND SECURITY THROUGH REMOTE ASSET MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL FOR ENTERPRISE CUSTOMERS ROBERT A. MAZER President R Mazer Associates Bethesda,MD ROBERT A. MAZER Senior Vice President and General Counsel Telepath Systems, Inc. Bethesda, MD Telepath Systems
Description of RAMC RAMC solutions allow customers to collect, interpret and manage information about the condition or location of their remote assets (e.g., temperature, pressure, vibration), and control key functions of those assets (e.g., open or close valve, turn engine on or off), from anywhere in the world, using satellite or terrestrial wireless connectivity and a secure web-browser. RAMC solutions automatically alert customers via , SMS, phone call, etc., of out-of-spec conditions of the remote assets. RAMC enables customers to evaluate the situation remotely and respond immediately with the right resources, often adverting potentially major problems before they occur.

Avoid power / fuel / water outages Avoid spillage, contamination, etc. Mitigate costly repairs Eliminate vandalism and theft Increase productivity Respond faster to emergency situations Control asset functions remotely Why Monitor Remote Fixed Assets?
Who Needs These Services? Energy production and dist. firms Firms who must comply with air or water quality regulations Large farms who monitor soil / crops Chemical treatment & storage firms Real Estate development firms Environmental & Gov. agencies
The economic, security, safety and social benefits of RAMC solutions: Improving response times Minimizing downtime, loss of production, costs of repair and cleanup Reducing safety risks associated with frequent visits to remote / hazardous areas by fled personnel Providing for tighter security; Facilitating government oversight and corporate compliance with laws and regulations, etc.
US / Global Market for RAMC Services Source: Harbour Research 2007
Monitoring of Pipelines: flow, pressure, cathodic protection Tank monitoring: fluid levels, chemical composition Site Reporting / Alerting: compressors, pumps, platforms, wellheads Operating Parameter Monitoring: fluid levels, temp., RPM, energy output Smart-Grid Management: for electric power transmission and distribution Renewable Energy Management: renewable energy facilities
Case study: Gas Well and Pipeline Monitoring
Direct benefits of RAMC services to Oil and Gas producers Increased production up to 20% Reduced downtime of up to 10% Operating by exception (efficient use of resources) Maximized incremental well volumes from development drilling programs Increased engineering efficiency (less analytical time) Identification of system losses and inefficiencies
Air Quality Management Irrigation Systems Monitoring: temperature, chemical and soil. Water Sampling: in rivers, lakes, wetlands, etc. Gas Pollution Monitoring: incl. pollutant levels in landfills. Waste Water Levels Monitoring: in water treatment plants Management of Bacterial Levels: in recreational water Flood Monitoring: and alerts
Worldwide Cargo Disruption Rates Cargo Theft Loss Estimates: US:$15B - $18B (Source: FBI) EU:$17B (Source: European Comm.) Global:$60B - $75B (ICSC) Regions Experiencing Dramatic Increases: -USA-Latin America -Southeast Asia-Russia -Africa-Eastern Europe Hardest Hit Business Sectors -High Tech-Tobacco & Alcohol -Pharmaceutical-Retail / Apparel Corporate Losses: -> 90% of Theft Occurs in Supply Chain -Supply Chain Security Spending < 5% Top 10 Loss Countries: -UK-Italy -Germany-France -Spain-Russia -USA-Brazil -Mexico-India Source: First Advantage; 2008
Transportation Mode Loss Rates
Who needs Transportation Security Trucking / haulage companies High value cargo distributors (e.g., oil and gas) Companies with specialized vehicle fleets (e.g., construction, maintenance, repair) Financial service companies Public transportation systems Company executives / government officials Government agencies (civil and defense) Anyone traveling in unprotected areas
