Top Four Reasons to attend Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems 2020 in London

The development and implementation of unmanned and autonomous ground systems is becoming increasingly important in discussions about force-generation, force-planning and future acquisition. As enhanced RAS systems enable militaries to see more, understand more, cover a greater area and be more lethal, these game-changing capabilities are critical in today’s digital battlespace.

With this in mind, SMi Group are pleased to host the Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) conference, which will return to London on the 1st-2nd April 2020 for its third successful year.

The conference will highlight the 5 priorities established by the UK MoD in the development of RAS, including situational awareness, lethality, manoeuvrability, survivability ad sustainability. It will also cover themes such as counter-IED, deep learning, AI, international cooperation, and communication systems, providing delegates with the ability to return to their defence force with the latest information and contacts in a game-changing industry.

Top 4 reasons to attend Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems 2020:

1) The conference is the leading event in Europe for senior RAS decision-makers, operators and experts. No other event has a singular focus on unmanned and autonomous systems in the land environment or can offer attendees the opportunity to meet and network with so many RAS professionals.

2) New for 2020: focus on Robotic Platoon Vehicles, autonomy and manned/unmanned teaming; new speakers from the UK, US, Estonia, Sweden and Australia.

3) Delegates can hear the latest updates on the UK Ministry of Defence’s Robotics and Autonomous Systems programmes with a dedicated panel discussion on UK RAS modernisation.

4) Delegates will discover the latest in RAS technology and find new products, techniques and opportunities in this dynamic field. For example, they will hear from leading RAS companies (including FLIR and QinetiQ) on their newest products and projects, and learn more about what the military end-user needs from their robotic systems.

For those who would like to attend, there is a £400 early bird discount for bookings made by 13th December 2019. Register online at:
