Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems USA Conference 2021

The only US-based conference specifically dedicated to military robotics in the land environment

, Arlington , VA , United States

We are proud to announce the inaugral Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems USA conference in Arlington, VA, 21st and 22nd June 2021. With a renewed focus on maintaining overmatch against near-peer adversaries, the US DoD is investing heavily in land robotics of all sizes to increase Warfighter lethality and remove the soldier from dangerous situations.

The newest and most exciting event in our unmanned portfolio, MRAS USA is the only US-based event specifically dedicated to military robotics in the land environment. It will bring together the leading US and international program managers, robotics experts and industry to discuss the rapidly expanding role of military robots within the modern battlespace. As new opportunities and challenges emerge in this rapidly changing area, the conference enables the military robotics community to work collaboratively to forge ahead and deliver the very best unmanned capabilities to soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines.

As well as bringing together the US ground robotics community, the conference will bring in some of the most dynamic and innovative international militaries to provide their unique perspectives; no other event in the USA offers the same number of opportunities to meet, discuss and network with opposite numbers from allied nations..
