AUVSI to Host Webinar on Emerging Trends in Unmanned Systems
Industry experts will discuss their predictions for growth in unmanned systems in 2019


ARLINGTON, Va. – The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) will host a webinar to discuss the progress made in the unmanned systems industry in 2018 and the industry’s potential growth in the upcoming year. The webinar will take place Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018 at 3 p.m. EST.

The webinar will feature Ron Stearns, market analyst and robotics and unmanned systems consultant, Shimon Elkabetz, CEO and Co-Founder of ClimaCell, Mark Rosekind, Chief Safety Innovation Officer at Zoox and Dan Ridlon, Co-Chair of the Unmanned Vehicle Systems Industry Group at Perkins Coie LLP, who will gauge the industry’s progress to date and predict where the next year will take it.
