SMi reports: SMi launches an exclusive conference on Robotics and Autonomous Systems, taking place on 25th-26th April 2018 in London, UK.

London, United Kingdom, November 13, 2017 — The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) has recognised the potential of Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS) to provide strategic superiority in military operations. As a means to establish the opportunities a quick adoption of RAS would provide the British Army, they will conduct an important and large-scale exercise in Autumn 2018: the Army Warfighting Experiment (AWE). The purpose of the experiment will be to “connect industry technology providers with Army front line units” and to “draw on the successful models offered by the AWE and Unmanned Warrior” (Royal Navy equivalent).

From this we can sustain that the British Army is seeking to enhance its capabilities and to modernise along with the new emerging technologies.

The UK MoD established 5 priorities in the development of RAS: Sustainability, Manoeuvrability, Situational Awareness, Lethality and Survivability. These five priorities are what SMI’s RAS 2018 conference will revolve around. Of course, these encompass other main themes such as counter-IED, AI, interoperability, or communication systems.

Taking place on 25th and 26th April 2018, the two-day event will gather industry leaders from across the globe. Latest nations speaking include: UK, France, Israel, USA, Finland, Norway, Brussels, Italy and many more.

Benefits of Attending:
· Hear the latest updates on the UK Ministry of Defence’s Robotics and Autonomous Systems Enhancement Programmes.

· Attend exclusive Military briefings from the United Kingdom, Israel, The United States, Finland, and France.
