Find Targeted Education

XPONENTIAL 2020 is the place to break down industry silos. From defense and energy to construction and undersea exploration, our community depends on engineers, scientists and visionaries to solve problems and generate ideas as quickly as possible.

To meet those evolving needs, we worked with our program committee to design tracks to help attendees focus on collaboration and the cross-pollination of technologies, policy solutions and the paths to public acceptance. The XPONENTIAL 2020 program is structured to deliver an educational experience that fosters growth and encourages unity through exposure to new ideas, new industry contacts, and new solutions across markets and domains.

To help attendees find the sessions that are of most interest and value, XPONENTIAL's extensive educational program is organized around the following Tracks:



The unmanned industry is on the verge of unprecedented growth. While the innovation and technology advances are plentiful, ideas remain siloed in specific markets and domains. This year at XPONENTIAL we are tearing down these walls with a track focused on sharing information across industry and domain.

Our industry was birthed by defense community nearly 50 years ago and has now grandfathered the next generation of technology with the opening of the national airspace, waterways and roadways to commercial opportunity. These sessions will bring you face to face with your counterparts from all corners of the unmanned universe sharing advances in technology that transcend the limitations of market and domain. Learn from these experts how specific problems have been solved and how they may apply to your specific challenges.

Whether you are defense construction, oil/gas, automotive or another market, you will learn from the diverse community that gathers at XPONENTIAL. This track will take you outside of your day-to-day mindset and spark creative solutions to your unique needs.
