While funding for many defense programs are getting cut amid the Department of Defense’s (DoD) latest cost saving measures, Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) spending continue to be a priority with spending remaining in the billions. Recent estimates have yearly global spending on unmanned aircraft doubling in the next decade with a projected $94 billion total in the next 10 years. Underlining the importance of unmanned aircraft systems and remotely piloted aircraft, the U.S. Congress recently added millions to the FY2013 budget request for unmanned aircraft.

This comprehensive symposium brings together key officials and representatives from both government and industry that will examine the recent developments, most critical capability gaps, and likely future direction for unmanned aircraft systems.

What are OSD and the Services’ roadmaps for Unmanned Aircraft Systems?
What are the latest developments within all classes of unmanned aircraft including HALE, MALE/Tactical, and Small UAS?
What are the latest COCOM perspectives for the UAS way forward?
What are the latest user perspectives for Unmanned Aircraft?
What are the emerging technologies for next-generation VTOL UAS?
What are the latest UAS payload technologies and initiatives?

These and many other questions will be addressed during this outstanding event.
