Past event: UAS EAST For DoD and Government Symposium

In the area of autonomous platforms, unmanned aerial vehicles have become the most matured segment to-date as the military has quickly valued their abilities in surveillance and strike missions but as for at sea and on land, the competitive landscape for vendors is largely still shaking itself out as they require more development to get to production, robotics and unmanned ground vehicles are regaining prominence as those obligations have rebounded from $681.8 million in fiscal 2014 to $1.6 billion last fiscal year mostly on R&D spending increases. Those numbers show a turnaround from sequestration cuts and defense spending shifts.

Future compound annual growth rate of 10.2 percent through fiscal 2021 with Army, Navy and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency programs among the drivers. Research sees cognitive engineering advancements as a driver of ground robotics as vehicles learn how to operate on their own and collaborate with other like platforms.

The Key issues address in the Program General Session will include

  • Emerging UAS/sUAS DoD & Government Needs, Requirements and Opportunities
  • DoD UAS Joint Program Updates, Emerging Sensor Capabilities & Testing
  • Hands-on User Perspectives on UAS Training
  • AI & Autonomy R&D
  • Emerging Major UAV Program Weaponization Updates and Platforms
  • Counter UAS Emerging Technologies & Policies
  • sUAS & Nano System Innovations and Payloads
  • Civil and Commercial Drone Platforms, Payloads Imaging Opportunities
  • Latest FAA Air Traffic NAS Integration Programs Status Updates
