*The Association of the United States Army regrets to announce that the Army Autonomous Systems Symposium and Exposition scheduled for 7-8 November 2017 in Detroit, MI, has been postponed until 2018.  Scheduling conflicts necessitated this change.  We regret any inconvenience and hope to see you at this event in 2018.*

The AUSA ILW Army Autonomous Systems Symposium & Exposition will connect the Army and Industry with Original Equipment Manufacturers, Major Tier Suppliers and leading-Edge Developers of Autonomy (and related) Technologies within areas of mutual interest.  The two-day event will consist of technical panel sessions focusing on the U.S. Army “Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Strategy” with non-Military analogs along with a supporting Exposition Hall.

The primary focus of the event is to connect the military with industry to generate military stakeholder awareness of mature and near-term maturing autonomy-enabling technologies, the role Artificial Intelligence plays in autonomy, and identifying/ facilitating pathways with the military Acquisition Community to accelerate the transition and deployment of autonomy into the hands of the Army Stakeholder. The emphasis will be on identifying/developing connective pathways between technologies in which industry is currently invested, and capability/functionality thrust areas contained within the recently released US Army Robotics and Autonomy Strategy (RAS). Intentionally the event scope will minimize focus on long-range R&D/S&T and Cyber-Security. The latter expected to be generically addressed as a necessary and minimum requirement for autonomy deployment and operation.
