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.

2017 Summit Topics Include

  • Current strategies to increase the interoperability of unmanned systems across multi-domain environments
  • Status of current research in autonomous and swarming capabilities
  • Enhancing Warfighter capabilities through autonomous multifunctional, mobile microsystems
  • Key focus areas for the DoD's Unmanned Systems Roadmap
  • Addressing frequency and bandwidth availability, link security, link ranges, and network infrastructure to ensure availability for operational/mission support of unmanned systems
  • Efforts to improve on-board data processing
  • Current status of research in autonomous capabilities
  • Near-term strategies to ensure that unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) have routine access to the National Air Space (NAS) needed for operations
  • Leveraging manned-unmanned teaming (MUM-T) operations to obtain a decisive competitive advantage in the combat environment


Why Attend?

Military Services and Operational Commands continuously look to unmanned systems in order to expand capabilities and maximize the success of operations across multi-domain environments. Accordingly, leaders within the US Military, Federal Government, industry, and academia are continuously tasked with providing the innovative strategies, concepts, and technologies needed to rapidly solve many of the current and foreseeable future challenges

From policy and procedures to requirements and technical capabilities, expanding the capabilities and strategic benefits of unmanned systems is not just about solving the near term challenges, but thinking beyond the abilities of today, to how and where these systems can be used in the fight for tomorrow.
