Unmanned Systems Academic Summit – 2020 @ virtual
Oct 15 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Online Proceedings Hosted By the National UAS Training and Certification Center

The 6th annual Unmanned Systems Academic Summit will include invited experts providing engaging presentations related to their work in unmanned systems research and development, education and training, commercialization, and technology transfer.

This year’s proceedings will occur online, with registered attendees gaining access to the live event for opportunities to ask questions of the speakers following each presentation. Additionally, the event will be recorded to provide the conference proceedings to both those that attended the live event and to anyone that may register following the Summit but who still wish to access the content.

Because the event is virtual this year, each registration will also include a certificate for a free Introduction to UAS Simulation and Flying lab experience, a $30 value.

Summit participants may schedule a session at a later time for themselves, give it to someone else to enjoy, or donate it for the college to provide the experience to a local middle or high school student.

 The full Summit agenda with highlighted speakers will be released over the coming weeks. Please continue to monitor the event website for updates and additional information.

Wright Dialogue with Industry 2020 @ Dayton Convention Center (Dayton, OH)
Nov 4 – Nov 6 all-day

Considering the projected continuation of government and industry travel restrictions, ongoing social distancing requirements, and the unlikely approval of attending large in-person events, DaytonDefense has made the tough decision to postpone the 15th annual Wright Dialogue with Industry (WDI) event that was scheduled for July 21-23, 2020, in Dayton, Ohio.

The WCI event has not been canceled for 2020.  The date has been moved to November 4 – 6 at the Dayton Convention Center so mark your calendar.
