Canadian Company to provide research services to US Government Lab

ActionFront Data Recovery Labs a Canadian company headquartered in Markham, Ontario, has signed a contract with USA-based Sandia National Laboratories to provide technical assistance for Sandia's data recovery capabilities.

Sandia's data storage team will gain access to certain aspects of ActionFront's SignalTrace™ research via this contract.

ActionFront has coined the term "drive-independent" to describe their new process that can read digital media without using original drive electronics.

"We are pleased to assist Sandia in their data recovery efforts and needs" says ActionFront President Ron Austin. "We welcome this third party validation of the value of our Research and Development program."

In a related development, ActionFront's SignalTrace™ Technology will be presented next month to TMRC, (IEEE 16th Annual Magnetic Recording Conference, by Charles Sobey of Channel Science. Mr. Sobey wrote the whitepaper "Recovering Unrecoverable Data - The Need for Drive-Independent Data Recovery", which ActionFront released at MSST04, (2004 NASA/IEEE Conference on Mass Storage Systems and Technologies). Mr. Sobey presented a prototype version of SignalTrace™ at MSST04.
