Abstract Submission Process
Tracks and Suggested Topics
UAS Airspace Integration – Proposals should focus on UAS integration efforts in the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS) or international integration efforts. Proposals covering government regulations, technological solutions (i.e. sense and avoid, collision avoidance systems, etc.) and related research efforts and case studies applying to airspace integration should be submitted under this track.
Commercial and Civil Markets & Applications – Proposals should focus on emerging commercial applications and markets for unmanned systems and robotic technologies. Applications include but are not limited to law enforcement operations, agriculture, natural resource management, conservation and preservation, disaster response, infrastructure protection, wildlife monitoring, healthcare, material handling, oil and gas exploration, etc. All proposal submissions exploring emerging markets and applications in the air, ground, maritime and commercial robotics domains should be submitted in this track.
Military Applications & Operations – Proposals on all topics related to unmanned air, ground and maritime systems and system concepts being developed, or those that are currently fielded, for military applications and operations. Topics for this track include but are not limited to ISR operations, armed unmanned systems, teaming, EOD/UXO, cooperative convoy systems, medevac, logistics and troop resupply, command and control, electronic warfare, communications, interoperability, etc.
Unmanned Systems Fundamental Research – Proposals should cover fundamental research on unmanned air, ground and maritime systems and related subsystems. Topics for consideration include but are not limited to autonomy, control systems, power/energy, sensing/perception, mobility/navigation, human-robot interaction, etc.
Other Technical Topics – All proposals that do not fall under the topics listed above should be submitted in this track.
