Find INSIGHTS That Make a Difference

Innovation has defined our mobility for centuries. Cornelis Drebbel took to the depths in 1620. Karl Benz took to the streets in 1885. The Wright Brothers took to the skies in 1903. Today, leaders in unmanned and autonomous systems are redefining how we move by developing new technologies, building new support systems, and addressing regulatory concerns to unleash the tremendous growth potential of this market. Together, we must tear down any walls that impede innovation and progress, and look to the unexpected for inspiration.

The AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2020 keynotes feature trailblazers from across industry, government, and academia, all coming together to share how — as a community — we can reach the next summit for unmanned systems. Our diverse line-up of keynote speakers will share their experiences as pioneers in their respective fields and inspire attendees to move forward and advance the unmanned industry together.
