We are proud to announce the 5th Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems conference, taking place on 6th and 7th April 2022.

MRAS 2022 is the ONLY event dedicated to military robotics in the land environment. This unique event will give you essential insights into the development and implementation of uncrewed and autonomous ground systems from international militaries. Robotics is becoming increasingly important in military discussions about force-generation, force-planning and future acquisition, so it is critical for military leaders and industry experts to understand the rapidly expanding role of military robots within the modern battlespace.

New for 2022: An emphasis on Uncrewed Combat Vehicles, Enhancing Autonomous Capabilities and Battlefield Human Machine Teaming; new speakers from the UK, France, Germany, Estonia, Switzerland, Finland, Czech Republic, Israel, India, Australia and New Zealand.

With a continued focus on the RAS priorites of situational awareness, lethality, manoeuvrability, survivability and sustainability, Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems is the only event in 2022 which will enable you to return to your defence force with the latest information and contacts in this ever-evolving industry.
