In the first instance, Mikoh moved to the US for this very reason, found an address close to Washington and knocked on doors, only attacking ultra high security applications, many of which they can never reveal the agencies involved, eg, State Dept, etc. Check their past ASX announcements over the years. Say, the last ten.

For all intents, Mikoh is a US company, such are the bonds they have, and the Federal clearance procedures they have undergone for many years.

On the printing business, although seemingly mundane by some standards, it is good enough to be hived off as a stand alone operation. That is; a separate ASX listing.

Since before their IPO, way back in 1993, Dr Peter Atherton is a chap I have spoken with on numerous occasions, he's an ex CSIRO scientist, initially carrying their technology into the company, a man focussed on getting it right, as opposed to making wild commercial claims.

Given time, I think we will read about Mikoh one day. How good their science is, and all that

A good progress report.The market needs a sale with some figures to move things along - of course you could take the 400k odd for sale and see what happens !!
All the best

Ask and ye shall recieve!!

almost as if you have a direct line to the top gulf, I see MIK released a progress report today... and there is quite a lot of info to process in there... certainly something to justify another chunk of stock to be added to my pile I think... biggrin.gif

hihi gulf... the printing division of MIK does not "float my boat" at all - it is really just a sideshow to the main RFID action IMHO. The only thing the printing can do is provide some local news if the deal with the RBA proceeds - it would of course also be welcome revenue etc, but I don't think it will produce a massive ongoing cashflow for the company.

What stuns me with the Australian market is that the MIK RFID technology is under appreciated - for example, the RBA printer trial announcement seemed to generate more excitement than the EVR trial announcement - EVR has the potential (very real potential if I am any judge of things) to provide a vast ongoing cashflow for the company as EVR technology is rolled out across the world (i.e. today Bermuda... tomorrow the world!!)

and my interpretation of MIK's patents (refer Google's patent site) suggests that they are water-tight, so the whole tamper-proof RFID label game is their's for the taking which is of course "prime mover advantage"!

further, MIK wouldn't be able to sell their RFID's into the US Government high security agencies if they were no good. I imagine the US governement would also have preferred to deal with a US company (for added national security etc), so this again reinforces just what a massive prime mover advantage MIK must have!

There was a recent article addressing security by MIK's CTO Atherton... it is worth a read...

sorry to dribble on so much... but I'm pretty passionate about this stuff... I'm hoping my children will be on the Mikoh scholarship at school~!! wink.gif

Having a look back through recent announcements on 10/1/07 MIK announced the trial with Note Printing Australia with the initial trial platform to be completed by March,an update if this is proceeding to the next step would be helpfull.

Thanks for the information.We must be due for some update on all the various deals they have in the pipeline.It would be nice to know the cash that comes from the Bermuda deal.

hihi team...

I just found a couple of websites that seem to refer to the MIK RFID Electronic Vehicle Registration program... it appears the small country where the EVR's were being trialled was Bermuda, and judging from these articles, it has been adopted!! Fabulous news!! lmaosmiley.gif

these releases seem to have emanated from 3M (the US giant)...

http://www.industrial-embedded.com/news/db/?6371

http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,2126991,00.asp

http://www.morerfid.com/details.php?subdet...80&display=RFID

the Premier of Bermuda has also made mention of the EVR system in several of his recent speeches... and the Bermuda Traffic Control Department website has some further details...

http://www.gov.bm/portal/server.pt?space=C...CommunityID=253

I'm no rocket scientist, but this is very exciting news for Mikoh... I would expect this could reignite the fire under the share price!!

Giddiup Mighty Mikoh!! smile.gif
p.s. attached is the Oct 2006 MIK announcement about the EVR trial so you can refresh your memories...

here is some nice background stuff on what Mikoh do...

http://www.packworld.com/view-22870

I also found that Transcore have quite a lot of info on their website about EVR (Mikoh claim to be the provider of tamper-proof EVR RFID tags to Transcore) and they make interesting reading... http://www.transcore.com/I&A/evr/evr-dl.html

cheers...
