74 As many readers may recall, the Association for Uncrewed Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and Messe Dusseldorf North America (MDNA) jointly organised and produced the 50th anniversary edition of Xponential earlier this year in Denver from May 8 to 11. The show was a grand return to scale and form following the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on international trade shows and conferences. About 600 companies presented their latest products and services for autonomous and uncrewed vehicles across the expo floor, and around 7000 professionals engaged with the 3 days of the conference programme, the international attendance increasing by 65% compared with the 2022 show. Such was the size of the exhibition and the number of solutions on display that we now bring you this second (and larger) part of our Xponential 2023 report, so that anyone who could not attend or could only briefly visit can catch up on some of the latest mission-critical updates from the uncrewed world. Although DARcorporation is not known for having a presence at trade expos, it attended Denver to show visitors its capabilities across propulsion system engineering, including propeller prototyping, acoustic optimisation, CFD analysis, structural FEA and vehicle design. “One of our recent collaborations we’re discussing here is the Modular Air Vehicle Research Intelligent Kit [Mavrik], an SBIR project we did for NASA which wanted a modular aircraft that could be configured in many different ways but still be flown by the same autopilot controller,” explained Drew Darrah. To that end, the company displayed In the second part of our report on this show in Denver – the Mile-High City – Rory Jackson reports further on the uncrewed technologies that were on display Going the extra mile August/September 2023 | Uncrewed Systems Technology Around 600 companies and 7000 professionals attended Xponential 2023 in Denver, to showcase new uncrewed products and services (Courtesy of AUVSI)
