This dynamic conference will feature a renowned line-up of speakers representing international regulatory agencies, as well as civil and commercial remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) end users. Each day of the conference will kick-off and end with an outstanding keynote presentation addressing the most important trends, advancements and information impacting the RPAS industry.
“Improving the Efficiency and Effectiveness of Current and Near Term Systems”
DSI’s DoD Unmanned Systems Summit is designed as an educational and training “Town Hall” forum, where thought leaders and key policy-makers across military and civilian organizations can come together for actionable discussions and debate. The Summit will offer a full spectrum viewpoint towards air/land/sea systems.
Ocean Business is an international ocean technology exhibition and training forum expecting to attract more than 4000 visitors from over 60 countries. Ocean Business 2015 will take place at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, Hampshire. The Ocean Business exhibition attracts over 300 companies representing the world’s leading ocean technology suppliers and service providers and it runs alongside a three-day programme of hands-on training and demonstration workshops, both dockside and at sea, enabling buyers to test drive equipment before buying. In addition, Ocean Business offers Offshore Survey, a two day conference addressing the technical and business issues facing the global field of offshore surveying and Ocean Careers, a three day event providing advice on career opportunities within the ocean technology, marine science and offshore industries.
Open and coastal oceans are key areas to comprehensive understanding of our planet, from large scale events such as El Nino, hurricane formation and tracking, to long term events such as global climate change, to short term weather predictions of both the atmosphere and the ocean. They are also very important in defense and security applications. This conference is intended to cover the R&D efforts in the ocean and lake sensing community to provide better solutions to the overall science, industry, as well as defense and security market by addressing current technology and environmental limitations, system decision, and implementation issues, as well as new technology that may be applied to ocean sensing problems. Specifically, these include topics associated with in situ and remote monitoring of the ocean surface, water column, deep sea, bathymetric and benthic features, impacts on sensor performance and calibration, data assimilation, and forecasting.
With more than 8,000 attendees and 550+ exhibitors from more than 40 countries, AUVSI’s Unmanned Systems is recognized as the leading event for the unmanned systems marketplace.
Jointly sponsored by the Marine Technology Society (MTS) and IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES), the Oceans'15 Conference and Exhibit is the major international forum gathering scientists, engineers, responsible ocean users and decision makers to present their cutting-edge research results, ideas, and applications in Oceanic Engineering and Marine Technology. The exchange of knowledge and the opportunities offered to new fruitful collaborations are crucial to the development of innovative technologies to meet the Blue Growth Challenge: harness the huge potential of the world-wide oceans for jobs and growth in a sustainable, environmentally conscious, and responsible way.
UDT is the most comprehensive and interactive conference in its field. Held 3 - 5 June 2015 in Rotterdam, Netherlands, it is designed to bring together delegates, senior naval officials and R&D Departments to discuss current and future operational needs and move forward their undersea defence and security strategies. In particular, this year's discussions will focus on the overall conference theme.
The overall theme for the UDT 2015 conference of 'Underwater Capability for an Uncertain Future' has been specifically chosen to reflect the global response to a change in scale and tempo in challenges in the underwater domain.
Sub topics include:
- MCM applications
- New Concepts, new challenges
- Critical technologies
Operational Drivers & Imperatives
- Future Requirements
- Command & Control
- Network Centric Operations
Escape, search & rescue systems
- Energy, Power & Propulsion
- Signature Management
- Performance Modelling
Sensors & Processing
Weapon & Payload Systems
Attendees will be immersed in the latest information from the exciting world of underwater autonomy. Through interactive workshops, informative panel discussions and product demonstrations, existing users of Kongsberg and Hydroid vehicles will have the opportunity to share their experience and knowledge to optimize their vehicle operations and non-users will learn first-hand about the capabilities and applications of AUV technology.
"The 2015 AUVX Users Forum will be an experience th at is not to be missed," said Duane Fotheringham, President of Hydroid. "Kongsberg and Hydroid take pride in the AUVs we build, and we want our customers to be able to learn about, and enjoy, their unparalleled capabilities in a hands-on way. Our AUVX forum is one of the best ways the global AUV and glider community can exchange ideas and increase their knowledge of these advanced systems."
The forum is open to all users of Kongsberg and Hydroid vehicles, with limited availability for non-users interested in learning more about the vehicles. The cost of attendance is $450 for all forum activities. The fee includes the welcome reception, presentations, panel discussions, workshops, demonstrations and the conference gala dinner, with entertainment. Additionally, attendees can enjoy a planned golf outing at the famous Renditions golf course, and an Annapolis Harbor sunset sail. Attendees traveling with guests will be offered a guest day excursion to Washington DC.
