Key technologies to be emphasised across the pavilions of this year’s expo include defence tech, composites, maritime systems, the ever-growing advanced air-mobility industry, and more. Naturally, the event will also feature the latest products across every autonomous vehicle subsystem conceivable, including new flight controllers, servos, GPUs, engines, fuel cells, lightweight solar cells, electric motors, radios, gimbals and navigation systems. The latest innovations will be showcased across a 100,000 ft2 expo floor, with at least 650 exhibitors set to display the fruits of their R&D – ranging from major household names in aerospace and defence technology to new, agile startups looking to commercialise the latest breakthroughs from laboratory to industry. At least 7,500 professional attendees from 60 countries are expected, including users, regulators and technologists. About 30% of the attending body are expected to be engineers and R&D personnel designing and building uncrewed systems, looking to examine the performance, SWaP and supply-chain resilience of new components before buying. A vast education programme is also taking place at the show, covering workshops, an innovation theatre, sessions informing Department of Defence requirements on tech development, and special meetings and working groups to bring experts together. Uncrewed Systems Technology will also be there to cover the evolving face of the autonomous vehicle world, and bring the latest mission-critical advancements in componentry, operations and services for UAVs, UUVs, USVs and UGVs to our global readership.
