Military Robotics & Autonomous Systems 2023 Conference

Optimising Uncrewed Systems & Autonomous Capabilities for Future Ground Warfare

April 17-18, 2023- London, United Kingdom

This will be the sixth Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems Conference we hosted, with the event growing in popularity and gravitas each year. With the world less stable and the threat of conflict ever greater; the successful implementation and integration of risk reducing, yet tempo and mass generating robotics and autonomous systems is more crucial than ever.

The MRAS conference is, as ever the best place to gain essential knowledge and insight from MRAS programs from across the globe, and where the capabilities, challenges and opportunities of these programs lie. Unlike other events, we strive to deliver real insight and learning experiences through the expertly selected participants who run our discussions ensuring the latest developments from all parts of the community (industry and military) are covered, in detail.

With a new focus on the implementation, integration, and interoperability, alongside the key areas of situational awareness, lethality, manoeuvrability, survivability, and sustainability. The Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems 2023 conference is best place to return your defence force fully equipped with the most up to date information from militaries and industries across the globe.
