The most unusual story in aviation history
08/03/18

Pioneering women in aviation is not something new, think Amy Johnson (the first female pilot to fly solo from London to Australia) or Amelia Earhart (one of the most famous female pilots of all time). However, on International Women’s day, we decided to share with you an unusual story about a woman who not only contributed significantly to aviation but who is an exemplar to the evolution of women. What makes this story unusual is not her achievements in aviation nor her passion about flying but the determination she had to stand out from the crowd. Blanche Stuart Scott (also...

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY. Our team talks about the most kissed face of all time and the importance of knowing your CPR - on land, in the air or at sea.
14/02/18

For those of you who celebrate Valentine’s Day then it’s out with the chocolates and flowers! But at MIME Technologies, this is the one day of the year that reminds our team of the importance of the most kissed face of all time. Who is it that? I hear you ask. Well, this of course this is 'L'Inconnue de la Seine', otherwise referred to as the beautiful, unknown woman of the Seine. According to the story, her body was pulled from the River by the Quai du Louvre in Paris in the late 1880s. With no known marks of violence...

Removing the Barrier of Altitude from Airborne Medical Emergencies
07/02/18

Recently, our team has spent time researching the frequency of medical emergencies in the aviation industry, which traditionally is a topic that goes under-reported. As MIME Technologies’ mission is to support first responders in places where ambulances just can’t go, we are acutely aware of the continuous pressure on the management of in-flight medical events across the world. It is unsurprising to hear that demand on air travel is rising. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) confirmed a total of 3.8 billion passengers now travel annually by aeroplane, and this number is expected to more than double to 7.8 billion...

Reality: Augmented
27/11/17

Those of us living in the tech world are always excited and enthusiastic to greet any new technology appearing on the horizon, especially if it's close enough to be within our reach. A few such technologies in recent years include Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). Most of us will have heard of VR, but it isn't that new in tech terms. VR has been around since the 1960s, when Ivan Sutherland (along with student Bob Sproull) created the first virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display system, named "Sword of Damocles". The idea of VR being that when the headset...

Innovation, Vibrancy & Dynamism - 7 days in Silicon Valley
20/11/17

So…let’s be honest. How much do Scottish entrepreneurs really know about the Silicon Valley start-up ecosystem? As an innovative breed of human beings who are keen to push boundaries, one thing is for sure we’re certainly keen to know more! We’ve all heard talk about how great the “Valley” is and how companies can achieve multi-million dollar investments that are on an eye watering scale in comparison to what we generally see here in Scotland. As the MIME Technologies team spent seven days and seven nights packing our diaries in Silicon Valley (a prize won at Scottish EDGE Round 10 finals), we gained a...

A Letter from MIME Technologies
13/10/17

The Proclaimers once composed in their 1987 hit single 'Letter from America' about, "Lochaber no more, Sutherland no more, Lewis no more, Skye no more." You can just about hear the song as you read those words, and the lyrics became synonymous with the Freshers week melee at universities (probably still just as relevant in 3017 as in 2017), at weddings...at really any event that had some element of 1) 'disco' and 2) 'Scottishness', although not exclusively. It was a tremendous international success, and it was written around emigration as the theme. Emigration in modern times, due in part to...

Definitions of 'remote' - it's not just about distance, by Alasdair Mort
21/06/17

‘Remote’ – from the Latin ‘remotus’ (removed) Adjective 1.       Distant from towns and cities - “a remote Scottish glen” 2.       Having minimal relationship or connection - “The brother and sister’s relationship was always remote” 3.       A networked computing system - “Remote access is available through IP address 192.34.673.21”   Flick through your dictionary of choice and this is the sort of definition you will see for the word ‘remote’. It’s the type of description that most of us would think of instinctively, although I would guess that most people would imagine distance first. Your mind might drift to a...

Rural & remote digital care: challenge or opportunity?
09/05/17

In a world where digital technologies are at the forefront of everything we do, how much of a disadvantage are our remote communities really facing? Globally, we increasingly see mobile devices being used as a healthcare hub; we store information on ourselves daily, like activities, diet, exercise and sleep.…this trend is only set to increase! Although few are currently integrated into our NHS, the future is most likely to see more sophisticated mobile health apps. We are even beginning to see drones being tested to deliver healthcare packages to remote locations. The key contributor to speeding up this process...

Increasing pressures on emergency services - a sustainable solution? UK Co-Response
23/03/17

Of course, in an ideal world, during a medical emergency everyone needing an ambulance should get one with perfect timing. Unfortunately, the reality is our NHS ambulance services remain under continuous daily pressure at a national scale. Being first on-scene can be extremely daunting and stressful….but it’s a vital and time critical role! Simply maintaining a patient’s airway CAN save a life. There is no doubt that properly organised response teams like fire fighters and police forces can provide support to ambulance services, often they arrive first on-scene for 999 calls. In the UK we now have an increasing number of collaborations...
