We are delighted to announce the 8th annual UAV Technology conference, taking place in London on the 25th and 26th of September 2023.

Uncrewed aerial systems have become one of the most researched and pursued military technologies of the past decade.

We look forward to welcoming the global UAV community to this leading conference in order to maintain dialogue, share ground-breaking ideas, and further this aspect of modern warfare.
