Commission Briefed on New License System Due in 2019

Beginning in early 2019, the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation will unveil a new cutting edge, user-friendly license management system to better serve all citizens in their interactions with the Department.

Melinda Streich, Assistant Director of Administration and Finance for the Department, introduced the new system at the regular meeting of the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Commission on June 4.

This technological leap forward will make it much easier and more convenient for the public to get hunting and fishing licenses, to learn what the law requires for various activities, to keep track of hunter education requirements, to apply for controlled hunts, to check in game harvests, to buy items from the Outdoor Store, and to receive noteworthy communications from the Department.

Technology, from robotics to ghost ships and unmanned fighter jets, can change the face of war, says AMAC

WASHINGTON, DC, June 8 – The robot soldiers of the future, so-called “battle bots,” are still in basic training.

“Being able to take soldiers out of harm’s way and accomplish the mission is a very attractive option to any commander,” according to Lt. Col. Jesse Curry, commander of the 82nd Brigade Engineer Battalion. Curry, participated in a recent joint American-British military exercise in Germany, designed to test what the army calls, the Robotic Complex Breach Concept.

“The exercise, which used robotic vehicles, proved the value of technology in warfare, paving the way for the development of humanoid robotic soldiers. The idea of replacing infantrymen with androids is a concept that may be in its infancy, but it is an attainable goal. Battlefield drones that can be armed with sniper rifles, machine guns and grenade launchers, already exist,” says Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC].
