Increasing Operational Options Using RAS Technology and Innovation

We are excited to announce the launch of our Robotics and Autonomous Systems Summit. This is the only event of its kind in the United States. There is no other Robotic and Autonomous Systems event that is strictly military and government focused. We will bring together leaders from across all sectors of the government, as well as leading industry experts, to talk challenges, upcoming strategies, and collaboration initiatives for Robotic and Autonomous Systems.

Our summit will highlight the  upcoming strategies for maintaining overmatch capabilities and implementing new technologies which will ultimately give our military better protection, better situational awareness, and make our forces more resilient. Join us to find out more about this innovative topic.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Improving RAS Autonomous Capabilities
  • Increasing Situational Awareness
  • Advances in Artificial Intelligence
