Largest Croatian Bank Deploys Aladdin eToken Devices for Secure eBanking   Adaptive Materials Achieves 12-hour, 40 Mile UGV Demonstration
BALTIMORE - Aladdin Knowledge Systems, a global leader in information security now affiliated under common management with SafeNet, Inc., today announced that Zagreba?ka bank, the largest bank in Croatia, has deployed Aladdin eToken NG-Flash to customers using its e-zaba online banking services.

It has approximately 1.2 million clients and accounts for one fourth of total bank loans, leading the market in providing housing loans and almost one third of overall bank deposits.   ANN ARBOR, MICH. - Adaptive Materials, the leader in portable power from solid oxide fuel cells, recently completed a 64-kilometer (40 mile), 12-hour test drive of an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV). Completed at Camp Grayling in Grayling, Mich., this achievement demonstrates that Adaptive Materials' 150-watt fuel cell system, powered by globally-available propane, enables unprecedented UGV endurance capabilities. "Demonstrating the duration capabilities of a UGV in a rugged, real-world environment is a critical milestone in aligning the Adaptive Materials fuel cells with the potential of UGVs," said Michelle Crumm, chief business officer. "UGVs are limited now by the power provided through batteries; on battery power, UGVs can only travel so far or sit and sense for a limited period of time before the battery needs to be charged or replaced. By leveraging the proven, reliable power of an Adaptive Materials fuel cell, UGVs can achieve ultra-long duration and long range missions."
