Unmanned Aerial Systems Conference

In recent years there has been a rapid growth in the employment of unmanned aerial systems and vehicles in both the commercial and military sector. With new sophisticated technological developments allowing for greater precision, autonomy and application, the need to meet operational demand has resulted in a slew of questions concerning the military’s capability to support these systems. In particular; how does the military go about narrowing the skills gap in UAV usage, how do we increase access to national and international air space to train and use these UAV’s and do we have the structures in place to sustain them?

This year, we are delighted to announce that the agenda has now been released for the 15th annual Unmanned Aerial Systems Conference, as it aims to explore the most highly relevant and niche developments within the field of UAS’s and UAV’s in relation to the military. The conference will provide the perfect platform for the industry to discuss the legislative, physical and technological challenges in implementing UAV’s and will assess the advancements in the commercial sector and how they can be applied to optimize Military operations.

Key Benefits of Attending in 2015:

  • Examine the integration of UAVs into protected national and international air space
  • Discuss the influence of commercial tech developments and give a critical analysis of the ramifications of these on the military
  • Evaluate the importance of scale and the impact of small and nano-sized UAVs on training and operations
  • Debate the use of autonomous UAVs in ISR, combat support and law enforcement
  • Explore the measures being taken to counter UAS strikes
