LG G7 ThinQ the first smartphone with DTS: X stereo sound to make game and video more vividly with your earphones.

The first smartphone "DTS: X" stereo sound to make game and video more vividly.

The LG G7 ThinQ offers differentiating pleasures for customers enjoying games and videos with their earphones. The LG G7 ThinQ is the first smartphone to feature a DTS: X technology that allows users to enjoy high-end stereoscopic sound like a movie theater with up to 7.1 channels without any advanced earphones.

Unlike conventional stereophonic technology, which is effective only in content that is difficult to obtain, 'DTS: X' technology has the advantage of providing enhanced stereo sound effects even when playing back any content.

DTS: X stereoscopic not only makes the dialog sound more crisp when watching movies, but also gives the user a more immersive content experience by creating a vivid sense of space when playing a game.

The industry's only "Hi-Fi Quad Deck" through the premium sound is unmatched

The Hi-Fi Quad DAC, a proprietary LG smartphone, has evolved further.

'Hi-Fi Quad Deck' is a top-of-the-line acoustic component that implements four DACs, a device that converts digital sound signals into human audible analog sound signals, on a single chip. It lowers the distortion rate to 0.0002% of the master audio level, and gives a clear sound close to the original sound.

The 'Hi-Fi Quad Deck' applied to the LG G7 ThinQ offers a powerful hi-fi output unlike a normal smartphone, and enjoys a rich volume even with high-quality headphones that are relatively easy to hear with a relatively large resistance value. It also supports the MQA (Master Quality Authenticated) standard, which allows you to enjoy high-fidelity high-quality streaming with little data capacity.

With the LG G7 ThinQ BoomBox speakers you don`t need BT separated speakers anymore.

The LG G7 ThinQ is equipped with Boombox speaker, a new technology that the smartphone itself plays as a speaker's loudspeaker. As a result, the bass sound volume, which greatly affects the sound quality, has been improved by more than 6 decibels (dB), resulting in a powerful bass that is twice as rich as the existing smart phone.

Especially, if you put the LG G7 ThinQ on a table or box made of various materials such as wood or iron, the table becomes a large woofer that resonates with the smartphone. This allows the output to be as powerful as connecting a separate speaker, allowing you to experience different levels of sound.

Will Foldable phones kill tablets to the end ? Samsung may launch a foldable variant of the Galaxy Note in 2019.

Image result for samsung galaxy note foldable

There are so many interests by smartphones makers at this time to keep not yet launching a foldable smartphone to tablet, maybe because these companies are still making tablets.

Another  reason are the technical hurdles not yet complete solved, mostly those linked to the durability of components.

However Samsung is working on a inward-folding phone that has 7 inch display screen when it is unfolded.

The screen could be extended up to 10 inch in the coming years and that is really a threat to actual tablets.

“Foldable smartphones will gobble up the market share of conventional smartphones and it is highly likely that the new type of phones will signal the end of tablets,” “That’s why Samsung Electronics and other smartphone makers who also make tablets are still gauging the launch timing of their own foldable phones.” said  Yi Choong-hoon, head of market research firm UBI Research, on April 26 at a display seminar in Seoul. 

Samsung’s mobile business chief Koh Dong-jin said the firm aimed to launch its own foldable phone in 2018. But industry sources say the release schedule seems to have been postponed again to next year.

“The Galaxy S celebrates its 10th anniversary next year. Rather than stealing the marketing spotlight from the flagship phone, Samsung is likely to debut a foldable variant of the next-generation Note phone later in the year,” Yi added.

1Q 2018: Samsung goes high in profits with 15.6 KRW trillion and grew in revenue with a 20% YoY to KRW 60.6 trillion

1Q 2018: Samsung goes high in profits with 15.6  KRW trillion and grew in revenue with a 20% YoY to KRW 60.6 trillion

Samsung Electronics posted KRW 60.56 trillion in consolidated revenue and KRW 15.64 trillion in operating profit for the first quarter of 2018. 

First quarter revenue was primarily led by Samsung’s Memory Business and increased sales of its flagship mobile products, including the Galaxy S9. 

Total revenue grew approximately 20 percent YoY to KRW 60.6 trillion. Operating profit for the quarter was a record high, posting an increase of KRW 5.7 trillion YoY. Profitability improved significantly in the quarter thanks to the Semiconductor Business and the early global launch of the Galaxy S9. All in all, the operating margin in the first quarter was 25.8 percent, up 6.2 percentage points YoY. 

By business unit, the Semiconductor Business’ significant earnings performance was driven by demand for memory chipsets for high value-added servers and graphics products. The System LSI and Foundry businesses also contributed to first quarter earnings, backed by strong demand for chips used for smartphones and crypto-currency mining. 

For the Display Panel segment, which manufactures OLED and LCD screens, profits were affected by slow demand for flexible OLED panels and greater competition between rigid OLED and LTPS LCD. An imbalance between supply and demand in the LCD market, brought on by competitors’ increased production capacity, also weighed on earnings. 

For the IT & Mobile Communications Division, the early launch of the Galaxy S9 and solid sales of the Galaxy S8 smartphones resulted in considerable growth in earnings. 

As for the Consumer Electronics Division, earnings by the Visual Display Business slid YoY following an adjustment in its TV lineup where some mid-range to low-end products were removed. As for the Digital Appliances Business, rising raw material prices and other factors impacted profitability. 

For the second quarter, Samsung expects the Memory Business to maintain its strong performance, but generating overall earnings growth across the company will be a challenge due to weakness in the Display Panel segment and a decline in profitability in the Mobile Business amid rising competition in the high-end segment. 

Demand for server and mobile DRAM is expected to be robust and orders for high-density storage chips will grow as the price of NAND softens in the second quarter. For the System LSI and Foundry businesses, shipments of 10-nanometer APs and crypto-currency mining chips will expand but earnings will be impacted due to sluggish demand for smartphone components. 

The Display Panel segment will seek profitability in OLED by cutting costs and improving yield, amid the weak demand for flexible products. As for LCD panels, oversupply is anticipated despite an expected boon in TV sales in time with an upcoming major global soccer event. 

In the Mobile Business, profitability is expected to decline QoQ due to stagnant sales of flagship models amid weak demand and an increase in marketing expenses. Meanwhile, earnings for the Consumer Electronics Division are projected to improve due to increased shipments of new products such as QLED TVs and strong seasonal demand for air conditioners. 

The overall business outlook for the second half regarding components is positive, as the company looks forward to strong demand for DRAM and increased sales of OLED panels. 

For set products, Samsung aims to sustain profitability by strengthening its market leadership in the sales of premium products despite challenging global market conditions. 

In the mid to long term, Samsung will strengthen its business capabilities by delivering differentiated technology in the component business and solidifying its leadership in cutting-edge technologies such as AI and 5G. The company believes opportunities will widen for the set business, as digital devices become increasingly connected. 

Total capital expenditure in the first quarter was KRW 8.6 trillion including KRW 7.2 trillion for the Semiconductor Business and KRW 0.8 trillion for the Display Panel segment. 

Samsung has not yet finalized its capex plan for 2018, but the company expects it to decline YoY. Capex rose substantially in 2017 due to efforts to respond to market growth and emerging technologies, which included expanding the production capacity for flexible OLED panels.

Semiconductor Posts Solid Earnings on Strong Memory Performance
The Semiconductor businesses posted KRW 11.55 trillion in operating profit on consolidated revenue of KRW 20.78 trillion for the quarter. 

Overall, the Memory Business achieved strong earnings, despite weak seasonality, thanks to a continuation of favorable market conditions as well as strong server demand. 

For NAND, demand remained stable due to an expansion of cloud infrastructure and the continuation of a trend toward higher density solution products. Samsung posted solid earnings by concentrating on sales of high-density mobile storage and value-added solutions, including SSDs over 2TB for datacenters and over 8TB for enterprise, backed by a stable ramp-up of 64-layer 3D NAND production at the company’s Pyeongtaek plant. 

For DRAM, demand stayed strong thanks to growth in servers and graphics products. Server demand remained high due to continuous expansion of datacenter infrastructure. Mobile demand saw a stable increase thanks to content growth across all segments while PC demand saw moderate growth in line with seasonal patterns. In graphics, total demand increased thanks to strong demand for both graphics and crypto-currency mining cards. 

Looking at the second quarter outlook for NAND, total demand is expected to increase. Datacenters will remain a key driver for SSD demand, and mobile demand is forecast to be strong as the high-density trend continues. Samsung will continue to increase high-density server SSD supply and drive more eStorage strategies. Looking further ahead to the second half, server and mobile demand is expected to be solid, as the trend of SSD replacing HDD accelerates and storage expansion across smartphone segments continues. The company will focus on continued migration to 64-layer while also strengthening product and cost competitiveness and ramping up next-generation products in a timely manner. 

As for the second quarter DRAM outlook, strong server demand is anticipated due to datacenter expansion in the US and China. Mobile demand, driven by content growth, is expected to remain solid. Samsung will focus on expediting qualification of 1Ynm and expanding 1Xnm products, while maintaining a flexible product mix. For the second half, demand from all applications is set to increase. Robust server demand will continue while AI and machine learning will drive demand for high-performance High Bandwidth Memory (HBM). For graphics, strong demand for consoles and VGA cards for crypto-currency mining will continue. Solid mobile demand is expected as manufacturers consider high-performance and high-density memory for flagship devices. Samsung will focus on flexible supply and investment, and expanding value-added sales through high-density server DRAM and differentiated products such as HBM2 and LPDDR4X. 

For the System LSI Business, mobile DDI earnings declined due to slow OLED panel demand, but overall earnings increased amid strong demand for mobile processors and image sensors. In the second quarter, demand for premium smartphone components is expected to slow, and Samsung will focus on the stable supply of mobile processors and image sensors for flagship models. Looking further ahead to the second half, demand for image sensors is expected to rise as manufacturers increasingly adopt dual cameras and 3-stack FRS sensors. The company will focus on sustaining growth in mobile processor sales and expanding its offerings from mobile to areas such as IoT, VR and automotive. 

For the Foundry Business, despite weak seasonality, total earnings grew QoQ due to increased demand for High Performance Computing (HPC) chipsets. During the quarter, the company also broke ground on an EUV-line at its Hwaseong plant to address future demand for 7-nano and below products. In the second quarter, solid demand for high performance chipsets is expected. Samsung plans to expand HPC and 10-nano mobile products and promote FD-SOI and 8-inch processes. In 2018, despite slowing mobile demand, the company aims to diversify its customer and application bases and continue to offer derivative processes, including those for 8- and 11-nano chips. Through these efforts, the company expects to achieve over USD 10 billion in sales and maintain a strong second place in the foundry market in 2018.

Display to Improve Production Efficiency
The Display Panel business posted KRW 7.54 trillion in consolidated revenue and KRW 0.41 trillion in operating profit for the quarter. 

For the OLED business, QoQ earnings declined due to a slowdown in demand and intensified competition between rigid OLED and LTPS LCD panels. 

For the LCD business, despite a decrease in shipments under weak seasonality and a continued decline in LCD panel ASPs, earnings remained flat QoQ thanks to cost reductions and an expansion in the sales portion of value-added LCD products, boosted particularly by UHD and large-sized panels. 

Looking ahead to the second quarter, amid forecasts for weak demand for OLED panels, Samsung will strive to secure profitability by reducing costs and improving production efficiency. For LCD, under unfavorable supply-demand conditions due to capacity expansions in the industry, the company will focus on developing value-added and differentiated products as well as reducing costs. 

For the second half, OLED panels in the smartphone industry are expected to see a rebound in demand, especially as demand for flexible panels remains strong in the high-end segment. Under these circumstances, Samsung will strengthen cost competitiveness and diversify its customer base through new products and technologies in order to increase market share. The company will also aim to secure new growth engines by applying its competencies in new applications on top of smartphones. 

For LCD in the second half, while the company foresees market uncertainties due to growing competition and capacity expansions, Samsung will continue to strengthen its strategic partnerships with major business partners and differentiate its value-added products, including large-sized and high resolution TV panels. 

Mobile Earnings to Decrease in Q2 with Higher Marketing Costs

The IT & Mobile Communications Division posted KRW 28.45 trillion in consolidated revenue and KRW 3.77 trillion in operating profit for the quarter. 

While overall market demand for smartphones and tablets declined during weak seasonality, Samsung’s smartphone shipments increased QoQ due to an early release of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ as well as solid sales of the Galaxy S8. 

As a result of increased sales, mainly driven by premium models, revenue and profit significantly increased both QoQ and YoY. Earnings for the Networks Business also improved due to LTE investments from major overseas partners and an expansion of new solutions for optimization of network operations. 

Looking ahead to the second quarter, Samsung expects earnings to decrease QoQ due to a slowdown in sales of its flagship models and increased marketing expenses to address the situation. Samsung will aim to maintain sales momentum of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ by expanding the operation of experiential stores, strengthening the cooperation with partners, and reinforcing promotional programs such as trade-ins.

For the second half, Samsung will seek to strengthen sales in the premium market by launching a new flagship model and maintaining long-tail sales of the Galaxy S9, S9+, and flagship models from the previous year. In the mass segment, Samsung will introduce new models optimized for specific markets and strengthen both offline and online sales channels. Moreover, Samsung will continuously invest in expanding the Bixby 2.0 open ecosystem to provide a seamless multi-device experience for consumers.

For the Networks Business, the company expects increased earnings QoQ for the second quarter and will focus on continued growth by expanding its LTE business and leading the world’s first commercialization of 5G.

Consumer Electronics to Focus on Premium Products  
The Consumer Electronics Division posted KRW 9.74 trillion in consolidated revenue and KRW 0.28 trillion in operating profit for the quarter. 

Overall, the TV market decreased QoQ due to slow seasonality following the year-end holiday, but grew YoY due to increased demand in emerging markets such as the CIS, the Middle East, and Latin America. 

Although earnings were slightly down YoY, due to a restructuring of the sales mix with a defocus on the entry lineup, the company maintained its leading position in the premium TV market by continuing to achieve high market share in the USD 2,500 and above premium segment, thanks to expanded sales of flagship models, including QLED and ultra-large screen TVs. 

Looking to the second quarter, TV market demand is projected to deliver YoY growth, driven mainly by demand momentum from the major global soccer event and growth in emerging markets. Samsung will aim to improve results by expanding sales of new models, particularly during the soccer competition. For 2018, the market is forecast to slightly grow. With the addition of the company’s launch of 8K and Micro LED TVs in the second half, Samsung will seek to solidify its premium leadership and focus on ensuring sustainable and profitable growth in the mid to long term. 

For the Digital Appliances Business, the market saw moderate growth in the first quarter due to increased demand in both developed and emerging markets. Samsung’s sales improved YoY thanks to strong sales of premium products, including the FlexWash washing machine, Cube air purifier and system air conditioners. However, earnings decreased slightly YoY due to an increase in prices of raw materials and operating costs of the new factory in North America.

Looking to the second quarter, Samsung will aim to accelerate growth by expanding its premium lineup, including QuickDrive washing machine and POWERStick PRO vacuum cleaner, and by increasing air conditioner sales during the peak season. For 2018, the company will continue to focus on strengthening premium sales in advanced markets, reinforcing its B2B business for built-in appliances and system air conditioners, and expanding its online business.

LG G7 ThinQ coming with a 6.1 inch "Super Bright Display" at 1000 nits, New Second Screen and will consume 30% less power.

                                                                                   New Second Screen

LG G7 ThinQ coming with a 6.1 inch "Super Bright Display" at 1000 nits, New Second Screen and will consume 30% less power.

LG Electronics Inc. said Wednesday its upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG G7 ThinQ, set to be unveiled next month, will come with the brightest display in the industry.

The South Korean tech giant said the LG G7's "Super Bright Display" will come with brightness of a whopping 1,000 nits, a measure that refers to one candela per square meter. A higher figure indicates a brighter display.

LG said the average smartphone has a brightness of 500 to 600 nits, claiming users will enjoy its vivid 6.1-inch screen in any outdoor environment.

Concerning battery consumption, LG said the upcoming smartphone will consume 30 percent less power compared with the previous G6, hinting that users will be able to enjoy a "Super Bright Display" without being concerned about battery shortage.

The company said it also reduced the bezel of the G7 significantly compared with the G6 and added what it calls a "New Second Screen" at the top of the display, which will be similar to the notch design of U.S. tech giant Apple Inc.'s iPhone X. LG said the new feature marks an update from the second screen that was first adopted by the company in 2015.

Users will also customize how their smartphones display major colors, namely red, green and blue. They will also choose from various display modes for different content, including cinema, sports and games.

LG added the G7 display will combine the company's technology know-how gained both from TVs and smartphones.

The smartphone will be introduced in New York on May 2, followed by another launch event in Seoul the following day. The South Korean tech giant said the upcoming smartphone will become its first G model to come with "ThinQ" in its title, which is LG Electronics' AI vision that centers on "thinking from consumers' perspective."

1Q 2018: PC market share WorldWide: HP 22.6%, Lenovo 20.4%, Dell 16.9%, Acer 6.8% says IDC.

Worldwide shipments of traditional PCs (desktop, notebook, and workstation) totaled 60.4 million units and recorded flat (0.0%) year-on-year growth in the first quarter of 2018 (1Q18), according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker. The results exceeded the earlier forecast of a 1.5% decline and marks the third consecutive quarter where traditional PC shipment volume has hovered around flat growth year on year.

Although the numbers are preliminary, the data seems to indicate a continued build up in commercial renewal activity as the main driver for the stabilizing trend. Business uptake of Windows 10 systems appear to be steadily ongoing, benefitting commercially-focused PC OEMs such as HP, Dell, and Lenovo. 

Demand for premium notebooks in both the consumer and commercial segments have also helped major vendors retain better margins and garner buyer interest. Furthermore, continued focus on gaming systems has injected slight improvement in pockets of the consumer space. Unlike the first quarter of 2017, an improved supply of key notebook components also loosened pressures on both supply and pricing, leading to some recovery of share for the smaller vendors.

From a geographic perspective, mature markets uniformly fared positively. The U.S. market saw modest growth after six quarters of year-on-year declines and Japan continued with its seventh consecutive quarter of growth. Emerging markets were more of a mixed bag as Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APeJ) shrank for the quarter while Latin America continued to recover positively against a tough 2017.

"The component shortage that initially impacted portions of 2017 led some vendors to stock up inventory to avoid expected component price hikes, and that led to some concerns of excess stock that would be hard to digest in subsequent quarters," said Jay Chou, research manager with IDC's P ersona l C omputing Device Tracker. "However, the market is continuing on a resilient path that should see modest commercial momentum through 2020."

"The year kicked off with optimism returning to the U.S. PC market, especially on the notebook side," said Neha Mahajan, senior research analyst, Devices & Displays. "A likely rise in commercial activity amidst a positive economic environment is expected to further strengthen demand. The retail platform too shows signs of stability especially with a fast-growing gaming community adding to the confidence."

Regional Highlights

The USA market saw a promising opening quarter for the year with almost all major vendors reporting increases in notebook sales. Overall, total PC shipments for 1Q18 stood at 13.5 million units.

In Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), the traditional PC market showed stable growth for the quarter, benefiting from a positive performance across both product categories. Continued mobility adoption and increased customer awareness of the value proposition of more premium devices enabled notebooks to maintain a growth trajectory. On the other side, desktops posted strong results, driven by the growing gaming market as well as long-awaited commercial device refreshes in certain sub regions.

The APeJ traditional PC market ended the quarter slightly short of expectations. India and Indonesia showed better than anticipated results, but the PC market in China performed below forecast with shipments weakened by a smaller number of promotions in the consumer segment and softer demand from the public sector.

The Japan commercial market was a couple points below expectations due to slowing of the momentum seen in 4Q17, but it still maintained healthy growth in 1Q18. The consumer segment was slightly better than the previous quarter in term of growth, but IDC believes shipments during the first three quarters of 2017 affected future demand, causing growth to decelerate in 4Q17 and after.

Company Highlights

HP Inc. maintained a comfortable lead over all others in the market with its eighth consecutive quarter of overall growth (up 4.3% year on year) and growth in all regions except Latin America.

Lenovo saw a flat quarter in 1Q18, the third consecutive quarter in which the company saw year-on-year volume stabilize with flat global growth and a slower pace of decline in the U.S.

Dell Inc. posted the strongest year-on-year growth out of all the major companies, growing 6.4% and buoyed by strong performances in nearly every region.

Acer held onto the fourth position. Its ongoing expansion into gaming and continued investments in Chromebooks have paid dividends for the company, but also caused some tough going in other arenas.

Apple finished the quarter in the fifth position with a year-on-year decline in shipments of 4.8%.

Zipline’s mission is to bring life-saving medicine to the most difficult to reach places on the planet. 

Zipline delivery drones services brings deliveries in the Republic of Rwanda, Central/Eastern Africa for a main delivery of blood and vaccines  in a fast way, reducing the delivery time from hours of driving to 15 minutes to an hospital, making possible to make a blood tranfusion or vaccine application in time to prevent deaths.

The orders of blood and vaccines are made via SMS or Whatsapp.

More than two billion people lack adequate access to essential medical products, such as blood and vaccines, due to challenging terrain and gaps in infrastructure. 

Zipline improves access to these supplies by flying over impassable mountains and washed-out roads, delivering directly to remote clinics. We centralize supply and provide on-demand deliveries, completely reducing waste and stock-outs. 

Zipline provides a seamless delivery system at an affordable price, obsessing over every detail, so you can focus on patient health.

What is new?

The new aircraft is part of a complete redesign of Zipline’s logistics system, which dramatically improves the system’s launch, autonomous flight, and landing capabilities. The improvements will decrease the amount of time between Zipline’s receipt of an order and launch of a fulfilment flight from 10 minutes to 1, increase the number of daily delivery flights that each Zipline distribution center can make from 50 to 500, and expand the radius of each distribution center to
serve populations of up to 10 million people.

Zipline’s new delivery vehicle is an autonomous fixed-wing style airplane. The plane is capable of flying at a top speed of 128 km/h, and a cruising speed of 101 km/h—21 km/h faster than the previous generation of aircraft—with a round trip range of 160 kilometers carrying up to 1.75 kilos of cargo.

The Silicon Valley-based company operates the world’s first and only  national scale drone delivery system, making thousands of deliveries per year. Zipline’s newest  generation of autonomous aircraft flies farther, faster and with more cargo than was ever before  possible— even in high altitude, heavy wind, or rain.

The new aircraft is part of a complete redesign of Zipline’s logistics system, which dramatically  improves the system’s launch, autonomous flight, and landing capabilities. The improvements  will decrease the amount of time between Zipline’s receipt of an order and launch of a fulfilment  flight from 10 minutes to 1, increase the number of daily delivery flights that each Zipline  distribution center can make from 50 to 500, and expand the radius of each distribution center to  serve populations of up to 10 million people.

Zipline’s new delivery vehicle is an autonomous fixed-wing style airplane. The plane is capable  of flying at a top speed of 128 km/h, and a cruising speed of 101 km/h—21 km/h faster than the  previous generation of aircraft—with a round trip range of 160 kilometers carrying up to 1.75 kilos of cargo. The new plane is capable of flying four times faster than the average quadcopter  drone and can serve an area 200 times as large.

“Our first generation aircraft and logistics system allowed us to create the first and only drone  delivery service in the world, which is helping to save lives in Rwanda every day,” said Zipline  CEO Keller Rinaudo. “We’ve taken everything Zipline has learned making thousands of  life-critical deliveries and flying hundreds of thousands of kilometers and redesigned our entire  system and operation from top to bottom. The new aircraft and distribution center system we’re  unveiling today will help Zipline scale to meet the needs of countries around the  world—including the United States.”

Progress In Rwanda To Date
In October of 2016, Zipline launched the world’s first national drone delivery operation in
Rwanda. The company was contracted by the Government of Rwanda to establish one
distribution center with 15 drones to deliver blood, plasma and platelets to twenty one hospitals  across the western half of the country. Since launching the service in Rwanda, Zipline has flown  300,000 km, delivering 7,000 units of blood over 4,000 flights, approximately a third of which  have been in emergency life-saving situations.

The company is now delivering more than 20% of Rwanda’s blood supply outside of the capital,  Kigali. In addition to its impact on lifesaving emergency situations, Zipline’s just-in-time drone  delivery has helped transform the country’s medical supply chain. To date, instant drone  delivery has helped ensure that hospitals always have access to blood products, increasing the  use of some blood products by 175% and reducing waste and spoilage by over 95%. Zipline is  in the process of opening its second distribution center in Rwanda, which will help bring the  entire country within range of its life-saving service.

Drone Delivery In The United States and Beyond
Zipline is working with state governments across the country to launch its medical drone delivery as a part of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) recently announced UAS Integration Pilot Program (UASIPP). The FAA created the UASIPP as an opportunity for state, local, and  tribal governments to partner with the private sector to accelerate the development and  deployment of safe commercial drone innovation in the country.

A key priority of the program is integrating autonomous, beyond visual line of sight flights over  populated areas into the FAA’s National Airspace System. The FAA is expected to formally  approve UASIPP projects in the coming weeks and enter into formal Memorandums of  Agreement with applicants by May 7th, 2018. Zipline projects chosen as a part of this process  are expected to commence operation by the close of 2018.

“Billions of people on earth lack access to critical medicine,” said Zipline CEO Keller Rinaudo.

“In East Africa, Zipline’s drones bring people the medicine they need, when they need it in a
way that reduces waste, cost and inventory while increasing access and saving lives. We’ve
been hard at work to improve our technology and are ready to help save lives in America and around the world.”

In addition to plans to expand its service to the United States later this year, Zipline announced in August of 2017 plans to launch the world’s most extensive drone delivery service in Tanzania  to provide emergency on-demand access to critical and life-saving medicines. Zipline and the  government of Tanzania plan to use drone delivery for blood transfusion supplies, emergency  vaccines, HIV medications, antimalarials, antibiotics, lab reagents, and basic surgical supplies.

The scale of the operation will be capable of making up to 2,000 life-saving deliveries per day to  over one thousand health facilities, serving 10 million people across the country.
