SMi Reports: QinetiQ will be sponsoring, exhibiting and presenting at the Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems Conference in London, next April

The 3rd Annual Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Conference, taking place on the 1st-2nd April 2020 in London, will give delegates an excellent opportunity to meet and network with leading OEMs and international militaries currently procuring RAS to enhance combat effectiveness.

For those who would like to attend, there is a £200 early bird discount for bookings made by 31st January 2020. Register online at: http://www.robotics-autonomous.com/telcopr3   

This year, QinetiQ was awarded a production contract for up to $152 million after they won the US Army’s small ground robot competition for its Common Robotic System - Individual or CRS-I program. The robot will come with a variety of payloads and an open architecture to add future capabilities as needed.

With this in mind, SMi Group are pleased to have QinetiQ as Sponsor for Military RAS 2020, as well as Gold Sponsor FLIR and Sponsor Lockheed Martin.

On day one of the event, Mr Keith Mallon, Campaign Manager - Land Autonomy, QinetiQ will be presenting on ‘Moving from Technology Experimentation to a Future Vision of RAS for Land Forces’, discussing:

  • Broadening our vision of Robotic and Autonomous Systems and how it can be applied to a range of tactical functions
  • Understanding how we want to fight in the future and what that means for developing RAS capabilities
  • Prioritising information architectures to connect RAS technologies


The updated brochure with the two-day agenda and speaker line-up is available online at http://www.robotics-autonomous.com/telcopr3   

Next year’s highly anticipated meeting will understand the rapidly expanding role of military robots within the modern battlespace with insights from first-class scientists, researchers, academics and senior military figures.
