Arlington

With near-peer adversaries aggressively pursuing RAS development, the US DoD is investing heavily in land robotics which are becoming ever more crucial for gaining overmatch in possible high-intensity conflict. These added investments in advanced technologies will increase Warfighter lethality, transform situational awareness and remove soldiers from dangerous situations.

 

SMi Group proudly presents the newest addition to our sell-out Unmanned Systems portfolio: Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) USA, taking place in Arlington this June.

 

Key reasons to attend:

 

  1. Building on the success of our multi-year Military RAS conference in the UK, meet and network with the world’s leading robotics experts and integrators from military, industry and academia

  2. Hear the latest updates on the US DoD’s land robotics programmes, including the Robotic Combat Vehicle, Expeditionary Modular Autonomous Vehicle and the Small Multipurpose Equipment Transport

  3. Discover the latest in RAS technology and find new products, techniques and opportunities in this dynamic field

  4. Learn from pioneers at the forefront of robotics development, including the Army Research Laboratory, Carnegie Mellon University, and Virginia Tech

 

As the newest and most exciting US-based conference specifically dedicated to military robotics in the land environment, the two-day event will provide a global meeting point for the US ground robotics community, key allied partners, and RAS thought leaders to explore new opportunities and challenges in this rapidly changing field.

 

Key topics to be discussed include: updates on leading US RAS programs and from key international allies, autonomy for military systems, both for lethal and non-lethal applications, mobility of military robots over challenging and hostile terrain, integration of RAS into existing ground formations from the squad up to and including the task-force level, and overall US DoD RAS development direction, strategy, and concept of operations and more.

London

In an increasingly complex and congested digital battlespace, the need to provide near real-time information on the whereabouts of an adversary’s location and intent, using enhanced situational awareness capabilities, is vital in aiding armoured units to respond quickly to incoming threats. It is therefore imperative for our defence forces to have a greater understanding of the capabilities available, to enhance both combat effectiveness and the survivability of the vehicle.

 

SMi Group proudly presents the fifth annual conference in the sell-out portfolio of Armoured Vehicle events: Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness 2020, the leading conference for armoured vehicle experts focused on C2, C4i, sensors, optronics and vehicle architecture.

 

The 2020 event invites not only military programme managers, operational commanders and leading engineers, but will also provide the perfect platform for both operational users and industry to share their insights on the latest systems and sub-systems, providing greater awareness of existing capabilities and future requirements.

 

Highlights for 2020

 

  • Hear the latest host nation capability updates from the British Armour Centre, Joint Forces Command, DSTL and DE&S

  • Network with key OEMs and System Integrators such as General Dynamics European Land Systems, Patria Land, Thales, Diehl Defence, SAAB Barracuda, BAE and General Dynamics UK

  • New focuses: sensor networks, signature management and integration of unmanned assets
