London, United Kingdom, April 16, 2020 --( SMi Group proudly presents the 5th annual UAV Technology conference, taking place on the 28th – 29th September 2020, in London, UK. Unmanned aerial systems are increasingly taking their place as indispensable assets to the modern military: whether as long range ISR assets, remote combat UAS, soldier-launched tactical systems, or “wingmen” for manned aircraft, UAVs are now a reality of warfare.

As investment continues to grow to reflect the increasing reliance on unmanned assets, there has never been a more important time to explore the latest technology, trends and developments in unmanned aerial systems. As the leading conference in Europe concentrating on UAVs, SMi’s 2020 UAV Technology conference is expected to be the biggest year yet. Delegates can anticipate that this year’s event will address key topics such as long range ISR capabilities, wingmen programmes, regulation, counter-UAS technology and many more!

Interested parties can now register and save £600 using early bird until 30th of April 2020 at
