Join AUVSI as we host unmanned systems thought leaders for a discussion of their visions for the community and outline how the technology will be integrated into the operations of an increasing number of government agencies. As the capabilities and application of unmanned technology changes, AUVSI’s programming changes with it, which is why we’re pleased to announce the new AUVSI Unmanned Systems—Defense. Protection. Security. (USDPS)! This webinar is your opportunity to preview the types of speakers and innovative ideas you can expect to hear at the event to be held February 6-8, 2018 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor.
