7th Annual DoD Unmanned Systems Summit Announced

DSI to host 7th Annual DoD Unmanned Systems Summit in Alexandria, VA, March 13-14, 2019.

Alexandria, VA, January 28, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Defense Strategies Institute is pleased to announce the DoD Unmanned Systems Summit taking place on March 13-14, 2019. The DoD Unmanned Systems Summit brings together senior DoD officials, military leaders, academia, and solution providers to enhance the interoperability and tactical capabilities of UxS across the services. As potential enemies increase their unmanned capabilities, the United States will have to develop systems of their own. These systems will have to increase warfighter functions and provide commanders with unmatched capabilities. In response, this summit will feature the growing role of UxSs in our country’s military and focus particularly on the needs of the various services to dominate on the future battlefield.

The 7th Annual DoD Unmanned Summit will feature senior-level discussions that emphasize the critical need for common controllers and interoperability to further enhance the effectiveness and accuracy of UxS across the services.

This year’s confirmed speakers include:

· LTG Joseph Anderson, Deputy Chief of Staff, G-3/5/7 United States Army
· BGen James Adams, Director, Capabilities Development Directorate; Combat Development & Integration
· BG John Ulrich, Director, Force Development, G-8
· Thomas Russell, SES, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army for Research and Technology
· Dr. Reid Melville, Strategy Lead for Unmanned Systems, AFRL
· Alexander Kott, Chief Scientist, Army Research Lab

The goal of this year’s summit is to allow for open and honest dialogue to solve the nation’s most difficult technical and strategic challenges while bridging the UxS capability gap among the services.

Seating is limited to allow for actionable discussion in a “town hall” format. Active military, government and state personnel attend free of charge. Those interested in participating in the 2019 Unmanned Systems Summit may visit the website at http://unmannedsystems.dsigroup.org/
