Why You Should Attend This Summit:
DSI’s 9th Annual Unmanned Systems & Robotics Summit will emphasize improving the multi domain functionality and networked approach to UxS capabilities. In order to maintain our technological and military advantage and dominate on the future battlefield, the US Military must continue to integrate robust, cutting-edge UxS and robotic capabilities.
This has been emphasized across the Services and the Summit will delve into how the UxS and robotics communities can best support the evolving Naval Unmanned Systems Campaign in alignment with the TriService ‘Advantage at Sea’; the Marine Corps’ Force Design 2030 ; The Air Force’s work towards developing attritable aircraft and evolving MUM-T, and the Army’s continued modernization objectives including developing common standards / open architectures across all platforms and updates on JTAARS, OMFV and more.
The Summit will also touch upon the broader aspects of future integration of AI capabilities and the impact on UxS platforms for integrating into JADC2. Industry and Academic Attendees will have a unique opportunity to engage in open and honest dialogue with decision makers and acquisition authorities about the future capabilities and requirements of these systems. Military and government attendees and speakers will gain feedback from industry towards the technical ‘art of the possible’ and their current challenges, while disseminating their respective organizations’ current priorities and initiatives. __________________________________________________________________________________
