During May 2019 the licensing arrangements for our design systems and modules faced price increases that would have caused our range of services to become inaccessible to our target users, professional project designers and teams in low income countries. As a result we canceled the existing licensing arrangements and have opted for Open Source systems.
This transition involved an assessment of the relevance of Plasma DB to this ongoing development. Fortunately we identified a way to reconfigure Plasma using standard file units. By applying Boolean reduction logic we have been able to generate Plasma datasets that are less than 30% of the size of competing SQL systems for the same datasets and our current developments, so far, are pushing this towards 5%.
This has opened up not only a very low cost and super fast access option but provides our technology with an exciting opening into 5G technological decision analysis applications.
We will be providing information releases as our product development progresses.
In the meantime our leading decision analysis service systems, SDGToolkit and Navatec are being transitioned to an Open Source to work with the new Plasma DB. The new Plasma DB is being demoed and prototyped and tested and we expect SDGToolkit to be launched through the George Boole Foundation in Q3 2019.
All applied research continues to be managed at SEEL-Systems Engineering Economics Lab, Hampshire, Portsmouth, UK. The main testing and pre-release evaluation unit is located at Navatec operations in the UK.

The first fully integrated cloud application with Plasma System databases or Plasmacores were rolled out at the end of January, 2018. This supported Navatec System an advanced cloud project cycle and portfolio management system.
