(TS) The development objectives of the Telecommunications Sector Reform Project for Myanmar are to: (a) improve the enabling environment for the telecommunications sector and extend coverage in selected remote pilot locations; and (b) establish priority eGovernment technological foundations and institutional capacity for Government to embark on its public sector reform program. There are four components to the project, the first component being creating an enabling environment for connectivity. This component will focus on technical assistance for addressing policy and regulatory bottlenecks to maximize the benefits of the sector reform agenda ($2.00 million). Technical assistance will be provided to MCIT on policy matters and to the regulator on various regulatory matters. The second component is the extending connectivity to rural areas. This component will support the development of the Government's universal access strategy in order to accelerate the provision of telecommunications and internet services in remote areas of Myanmar. The third component is the enabling eGovernment foundations. This component aims to support the Government's charter in governance reforms by improving transparency and accountability. It will also place a stronger emphasis on the provision of Government information and services for its constituents as committed by the President to its people. Finally, the fourth component is the project implementation support.

The Black Hornet drone feels like a movie prop. Roughly the size and weight of a sparrow, the robotic scout helicopter has already seen use with British special forces. At the 2018 Association of the United States Army exposition in Washington D.C, Black Hornet-maker FLIR showed off the latest way to carry the drone into combat: a miniature hanger for four drones, roughly the size of a large breadbox. It’s called the Vehicle Reconnaissance System. Like a description from a lost G.I. Joe ca...

Air New Zealand and Zephyr Airworks have signed an agreement to bring the world’s first autonomous electric air taxi service to New Zealand. The agreement between the national carrier and autonomous air taxi operator Cora signals the intention to form a long-term relationship to make autonomous, electric air travel a reality for all New Zealanders. The air taxis produce no emissions and are self-piloted through software, so those using them as transport do not need a pilot’s licence. No ru...

Rolls-Royce has announced a new deal with Intel as part of the engineering firm’s mission to build fully autonomous ships. The company (which separated from car brands of the same name) has been working on autonomous shipping technology since the early 2010s, and it said last year that it wants to launch its first uncrewed ocean-going vessels by 2025. As a first step toward that, it launched its Intelligent Awareness system for crewed vessels earlier this year. The system is comprised of a...

In which we, the 2018 staff of Popular Mechanics, asked the smartest engineers and futurists for their visions of future cities, and built a handbook to navigate this new world. Back in the 2020s, the tech industry started talking about transportation as a service (TaaS). Instead of owning and operating your own car or even your own bicycle, you told an app where you needed to go, then used a network of shared wheeled things to get there. What started with companies like Lyft and Uber led to ...

So you think the future of the auto industry is anonymous, autonomous short busses running around, available to pick people up at their behest as they beckon for rides from smartphones embedded in their chests. Well, according to one of the top auto dealers in Michigan, the industry is a long, long way away from seeing autonomous vehicles able to handle the rigors of the real world and at a lower cost than our current model. Sure he might be biased, but that doesn’t make him wrong. “We hav...

From flying drone taxis to carbon neutral electric buses, how new ways of getting around are solving the challenges of urban life Good ideas are always crazy until they’re not.” So said Google co-founder Larry Page, and although he wasn’t talking about new transport technologies, he might as well have been. Because whenever bold ideas have been put forward for transforming the way people get around cities, they’ve often been dismissed as mad — until, of course, they’re not. Just look a...

Smart Shooter unveiled a tactical drone-elimination variant of its SMASH 2000 fire control system at last week’s AUSA annual meeting and exposition. The basic SMASH 2000 system, which adds digital precision fire to in-service rifles and ammunition, has been tested by US Special Operations Command elements and other military agencies, and entered operational service with the Israel Defence Forces in early 2018. The new variant, dubbed SMASH 2000 Plus, locks, tracks and accurately hits both...

The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 was signed into law less than one week ago, on Friday, October 5th. The Act secures funding for the FAA for another five years, through 2023, and covers an array of items drone-related and otherwise. It’s worth noting that the length of time for the reauthorization is itself a big deal—as reported recently in the Washington Post, a five-year bill has not been passed since the 1980s.
