DoD has reported an expected Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) growth rate between 2015 and 2035. It is expected that federal agency UAS fleets will grow from a few hundred to approximately 10,000, with over 90 percent of these vehicles categorized as Nano, Micro, or Small UAS. In all cases, the UAS is the transport for the payload, be it sensors or cargo. The number and type of UAS developed, acquired, and deployed will be driven by mission needs and costs. Analysts still predict growth in this industry, estimating a total increase to just over $89 billion in the next decade. Not only is the military expected to sustain its backing of UAS technology, but the civil and commercial markets are poised to open up to a host of opportunities for the industry. This exclusive symposium will be an invaluable opportunity that will enable attendees to obtain the latest information on the emerging UAS technical capabilities, needs, and challenges from key DoD, Government, and Industry UAS subject matter experts. Key issues will include: Emerging UAS and DoD Needs & Requirements DoD UAS Joint Program Updates, Emerging Platform & Sensor Capabilities & Testing Hands-on User Perspectives on UAS Next Generation UAS Payloads Major UAV Program Updates and Platforms Developing Counter UAS Sense & Avoid Technologies sUAS & Nano System Innovations, Growth, & Maintenance Opportunities FAA Plans and Programs Status
