2nd Annual Unmanned Systems Symposium Scheduled
October 8, 2018

The Ridge & Valley Chapter of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) will host a conference on October 9-10 in Blacksburg, VA to explore the state of unmanned systems technology, education, and research. The event will focus on the theme, “At the Intersection.” Main event programming will occur on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg at the Inn at Virginia Tech. Local tours and other activities will be off-campus in the Blacksburg area.

Peter Kunz, Ph.D., the Chief Technologist at Boeing HorizonX, and Danette Allen, NASA Senior Technologist for Intelligent Flight Systems, are two of the featured keynote speakers at the symposium.

The theme represents the progress in unmanned systems technology and the challenges and opportunities increasingly appearing at the intersections of fundamental areas: human with machine; sensing with control; open architecture with secure software and communication; air with land and sea.

The event will feature plenary speakers, interactive panels, and demonstrations by leaders from industry, government, and education. Activities will include networking, recruiting opportunities, and tours of area unmanned systems facilities.
