Stress Engineering Services/Gray Supply Chains Data Systems

Stress Engineering Services (SES) / GRAY Supply Chain Data Systems (GRAY) have partnered to develop custom end-to-end solutions for logistics track and trace and for products/components where security and location must be monitored and verified. These custom solutions leverage the sensor development expertise and broad industry domain expertise of Stress Engineering Services and the back-end, Cloud-based data management services of GRAY to provide notifications and insights in near real time, or with a latency that is aligned with the true needs of the situation.

SES has more than 40 years of experience in most all major industry segments (automotive, consumer, pharmaceutical, medical, oil & gas, military, NASA, etc) developing custom sensors for unique measurement applications as well as general design, analysis, testing and failure analysis services. Depending on the situational needs and the availability of wireless signals; track, trace and secure solutions may involve Wi-Fi, CAT-M1 cellular, LoRa or some combination of these technologies. For situations where a wireless infrastructure does not exist, SES can design one that uniquely addresses the challenge.

The GRAY big-data platform is an integrated solution that solves the complexity and challenges of collecting and transporting data from a multitude of sources, be they big or small, fast or slow, always connected, or intermittently available. It is powered by the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), and the Hortonworks Dataflow (HDF) engines, integrated with Apache NiFi. Our current architecture runs on AWS EC2 instances.

Embedded Systems Engineer

Stress Engineering Services (SES) and GRAY Supply Chain Data Systems (GRAY) have partnered to develop customized, end-to-end track & trace systems to ensure security and transparency of their clients’ supply chain operations. By acquiring and analyzing data on product flow, location and condition, GRAY systems provide actionable insights to optimize transport and storage of materials and components. The result is reduced product losses, increased asset utilization, and increased productivity across supply chains.

GRAY is the only available track & trace solution that is custom engineered to fit clients’ existing operations, in terms of both hardware (how sensors are embedded into assets) and software (how data are provided to users). The GRAY platform is highly flexible, applying as appropriate Wi-Fi, CAT-M1 cellular, LoRa or some combination of these technologies.  Where a wireless infrastructure does not exist, SES can design one that addresses the challenge.

SES has more than 40 years’ experience in a broad range of industries, including, automotive, consumer, pharmaceutical, medical devices, oil & gas, and the military. This experience includes development of custom sensors for unique measurement applications, design, testing, and failure analysis.

GRAY provides a Big Data platform that solves the complexity and challenges of collecting and transporting data from a multitude of sources. It is powered by the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP), and the Hortonworks Dataflow (HDF) engines, integrated with Apache NiFi. GRAY has extensive experience in data security, and its security controls are modelled after those developed for US government agencies, including the FBI and FinCEN.
