MIMOS_LogoIn recent news, Malaysia’s research agency (Malaysian Institute of Microelectronics Systems – MIMOS) has signed an agreement with Esri to enhance the government’s research efforts in knowledge sharing as well as the use of accelerated technologies, cyber security, and Big Data Analytics (BDA).

The initial focus of the agreement will be to strengthen national security and public safety.

Speaking in Kuala Lumpur on 31 Oct 2014 during the National Innovation Conference and Exhibition (NICE) 2014,MIMOS president and chief executive officer Dato’ Abdul Wahab Abdullah said:

“This capability will allow Malaysia to strengthen its defence and security agencies with the combined power of location-based technology and acceleration, at a low cost.”

He said that that MIMOS would engage in research and development activities using accelerated high-volume Geographic Information System (GIS) analytics – using MIMOS Accelerator Library (MiAccLib) technology, and Integrity Platform (Mi-Trust) for GIS data leakage protection and custom made geoprocessing tools.
