Advancing Unmanned Systems Capabilities in Multi-Domain Environments

Defense Strategies Institute's 5th Annual DoD Unmanned Systems Summit is scheduled to take place on March 7-8, 2017, at AUSA Conference Center, Arlington VA.

Alrington, VA, January 09, 2017 --( DSI is proud to announce its 5th Annual DoD Unmanned Systems Summit, which is scheduled to take place on March 7-8, in Arlington, VA. As the U.S. and allied combat operations continue to highlight the value of unmanned systems, it is becoming increasingly vital to have a comprehensive dialog that explores the current challenges, near-term operating capabilities, and future strategic implementation of unmanned systems operating in modern combat environments. Attendees joining them for this forum will have the unique opportunity to discuss the innovative policies, research, and technological solutions that revolve around the central theme of: “Advancing Unmanned Systems Capabilities in Multi-Domain Environments.”

This year’s educational summit will outline existing strategies to increase the interoperability of unmanned systems across multi-domain environments, as well as explore cutting-edge unmanned concepts and technologies that will shape the future battlefield environment. Attendees of this event will be able to network with industry, academia, the Federal Government and the US Military as they participate in collaborative discussions that identify the current challenges that hinder the US Military’s ability to expand the role and capabilities of unmanned systems operating in complex multi-domain environments.

Confirmed Speakers Include:

· BGen (Ret.) Frank Kelley, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (DASN) for Unmanned Systems Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (RD&A)
