Even more dramatic is the transition from military employment to the use of UAS by civil authorities and the business world. This workshop will explore these inevitable changes and how they will affect both civil and military users. Who should attend? Both military and industry representatives will gain insight into where UAS focus will be for the next few years and they will benefit from having this knowledge to adjust future UAS development to meet their own needs and requirements. Why should you attend? This workshop will be conducted as an interactive seminar. Discussion is encouraged and welcomed. Everyone who attends will have a voice in the discussions and an opportunity to ascertain the future direction of UAS as one of a group of UAS subject matter experts. Agenda 08.30 Registration and coffee 09.00 Session 1 Implications on UAS procurement and operations as militaries transition from wartime to peacetime operations. 09.30 Session 2 Implications for UAS development as non- military and business use of UAS grows at an exponential pace. 10.00 Coffee break 10.30 Session 3 Emerging technologies that will influence UAS development for military, non-military, and business procurement and employment. 11.00 Session 4 Automation and autonomy: what do they really mean and what are the implications for future employment? 12.30 End of workshop About the workshop leader: Dr. Bill Powers is a Research Fellow at the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies’ Center for Emerging Threats and Opportunities supporting the Deputy Commandant for Combat Development and Integration’s Futures Assessment Division in Quantico, Virginia.
