Army Autonomous Systems Symposium & Exposition

Autonomous Symposium
Event Date: 
November 7, 2017 to November 8, 2017
Association of the United States Army
Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, 400 Renaissance Dr, Renaissance Center, Detroit, MI 48243

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.
