New Speakers. New Topics. New Vision.
Small UAS systems have been proliferating at an accelerating speed and they are having an impact in all parts of our lives. Their uses span from commercial, military, hobbyist, farming, logistics and much more. With this expansive growth come new and emerging threats. UAS have proven to be useful weapons on the battlefield where they can be used for reconnaissance and to cause harm. But domestic agencies have had a rising cause for concern because terrorist organizations, narco gangs, organized crime and other domestic groups have started to use UAS for nefarious causes. In this year’s conference we will be focusing on CUAS challenges & solutions for both military and domestic agencies.
Counter UAS 2018 was a resounding success in this new space thanks in big part to our reputable speaker faculty, sponsors, and 200+ attendees from the industry, all branches of the military and domestic security agencies. For Counter UAS 2019 we have planned on building on that success by putting together a robust program with high caliber speakers and decision makers. The biggest key to the success of the conference will be our attendees, our partners and the connections we all make in pursuit of a singular goal, identifying and providing the most innovative and cutting edgy CUAS solutions to the government, military and warfighters.

- Military's Counter-UAS acquisition goals
