UAV Technology Conference


London, United Kingdom

We are delighted to announce the 4th UAV Technology conference convening on the 30th of September and 1st of October 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

Now in its 4th year, UAV Technology is shifting from its previous Central and Eastern European focus to a more global approach by moving to London, with an overarching theme of providing a tactical edge to the warfighter through unmanned capabilities.

UAS now more than ever play a pivotal role as a tactical and operational tool for ISTAR, C4ISR, CAS, and other functionalities in the joint operational environment. Our UAV Technology conference will examine the latest technological developments, trends, and strategies within UAS capability development and acquisition. Bringing together a community of experts, planners, programme managers, and operational personnel to share information and strengthen relationships, this forum reflects the growing need for military and industry alike to come together in order to achieve higher levels of interoperability and greater capabilities.

Join this growing community of expert planners and operators to help further high-level discussion on the future of unmanned systems in the joint environment.
