We are proud to present the 14th annual Unmanned Aerial Systems conference. This well established event will explore the Unmanned Aerial Systems industry from both a military and commercial perspective. The UAS industry is facing transitional times and there are crucial updates updates from militaries that are leading the way in their operational use of such systems. Key speakers from the U.K, U.S, France and Italy will give briefings on their operational updates and analyse the impact of the transition to peacetime operations for some of the largest militaries in the world.

The conference will also address the multi-billion dollar commercial and civil UAS industry that continues to expand. Some key topics that will be discussed are the technological developments, groundbreaking applications, public engagement and the wider ethical and legal implications of such use. Essential presentations from the regulatory bodies such as the CAA & EASA will provide excellent updates on where the regulation currently stands and what their plans are for the future.
