SMi reports: UAV Technology 2019 conference to provide a tactical edge to the warfighter through unmanned aerial systems

The 4th annual UAV Technology 2019 conference is set to convene on 30th September – 1st October in London. This high-level international event will examine the latest unmanned aerial platforms being successfully deployed in multi-domain mission environments, the development of the technology behind UAS, the utilisation of emerging technologies, the unmanned integration for existing legacy platforms, and the development of technologies aimed at countering UAVs.

 

With the rapid proliferation of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions to UAS, which are readily available to a range of none-state actors and near peer adversaries, this is an ideal time to meet and network with international militaries and technical experts, to advance discussion on current and future UAS warfare capabilities.

 

Key themes for the conference include counter-UAS; UAS innovation and acquisition; small and tactical UAS; innovation and autonomous systems; UAS safety and air worthiness; guidance, navigation and communications; and swarm technology.

 

Within these key themes, presentations include:

  • Developing Counter-UAS Capabilities in Support of Ground Operations in Multi-Domain Operations
  • Enhancing Autonomy through Innovation and Experimentation
  • Tactical ISTAR Capability Development through Soldier-Launched UAS
  • Developing Future Doctrine on the Use of UAS Within French Military Operations
  • Ensuring Air Worthiness and Safety for Italian and NATO Unmanned Air Assets
  • Guidance, Navigation and Communications for Small Drone Systems
  • Advancements in UAV Swarm technology from Small to Large UAVs

 

The event brochure, with the full agenda, is available to download online at www.uav-technology.org/telco6   

 

Featured speakers for the 2019 conference include:

  • Major General Dre Kraak, Special Assistant COM AIRCOM, NATO AIRCOM
  • Colonel Stefano Bianca, Deputy Commander, NAGSF
  • Wing Commander Judith Graham, Remotely Piloted Air Systems: Programme Manager (Reaper & Protector), Royal Air Force
