Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems Conference 2024

Optimising Uncrewed Systems & Autonomous Capabilities for Future Ground Warfare

April 8-10, 2024 - London, United Kingdom

Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems conference is  returning to London on the 8-10 April 2024.

The Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems Conference builds and is ready to return bigger than ever in 2024. 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.

With a dedicated focus day and 4 separate afternoon streams, covering all aspects of RAS, 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 2024 conference is best place to return your defence force or company fully equipped with the most up to date information from militaries and industries across the globe.
