DoD Unmanned Systems Summit

Our DoD Unmanned Systems Summit is designed as an educational and training “Town Hall” forum, where thought leaders and key policy-makers across military and civilian organizations can come together for actionable discussions and debate. The Summit will offer a full spectrum viewpoint towards air/land/sea systems.

2015 Subject Areas To Include:

Our DoD Unmanned Systems Summit allows for military users, civilian, and academia across the unmanned systems spectrum to come together to learn, discuss, debate, and help advance several key areas within the community such as:

  • Counter-Unmanned Aerial Systems
  • Improving onboard data processing for ISR, sense and avoid, radars and other payloads on current platforms
  • Common Control Systems (CCS); Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) based software
  • Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) based software/hardware solutions for fielded systems
  • Opportunities to improve commonalities and interoperability across Service platforms to increase cost savings
  • MUM-T and autonomous activity
  • Precision handling
  • The use of unmanned systems in counter- IED/EOD and CBRN incidents
  • Spectrum management


“U.S. and allied combat operations continue to highlight the value of unmanned systems in the modern combat environment. Combatant Commanders and warfighters value the inherent features of unmanned systems, especially their persistence, versatility, and reduced risk to human life. The U.S. military Services are fielding these systems in rapidly increasing numbers across all domains: air, ground, and maritime...

The DoD’s vision for unmanned systems is the seamless integration of diverse unmanned capabilities that provide flexible options for Joint Warfighters while exploiting the inherent advantages of unmanned technologies, including persistence, size, speed, maneuverability, and reduced risk to human life. DOD envisions unmanned systems seamlessly operating with manned systems while gradually reducing the degree of human control and decision making required for the unmanned portion of the force structure...
