IDGAâ€™s: Unmanned Vehicle Systems summits have become highly recognized and respected forums where members of the military, government, and industry can come together for an advanced and focused curriculum on the up to date utilization of Unmanned Vehicle Systems. Unmanned Vehicle Systems (UVS) show great promise for a vast number of military and civilian applications. With the newly implemented Canadian First Defense Strategy, the increased use of unmanned vehicle systems will become a reality. The influx of $5.3B spent over the past five years as well as an increase in spending of $1.8B in 2011, and potentially $1B in 2012, has spurred substantial growth within the UVS arena.
Canada is presently being recognized as a global leader in the evolution from military unmanned systems technology into the civil and commercial sector. Unmanned aircraft systems routinely support Canadian law enforcement operations, the lessons learned from those early experiences have been circulating the globe as Canadian police operators have assisted their counterparts. Through this assistance, the utilization of technology, processes, and procedures have increased the implementation of unmanned systems among alliesâ€™ daily activities, in turn, enhancing their efficiency, safety and cost effectiveness.
Canadian unmanned underwater systems glided beneath meters of Arctic ice as they mapped Canadaâ€™s claims to the Arctic shelf. In the air, under the ocean, and across the land, Canadian unmanned systems have been supporting a wealth of applications. Functions at the forefront range from: emergency response to environmental monitoring, safety and security, making Unmanned Systems Canada the way ahead for Canadian defence and commercial interests.
Specific Topics of Discussion Include:
UVS in the Arctic
