PROGRAM OVERVIEW

2023 Theme: The Blueprint for Autonomy

As a community, we are moving beyond the vision-setting phase for autonomy and are drawing up a blueprint to fully operationalize and integrate these systems. And while a collective focus on the same grand design is critical, how we work together will determine how smoothly and quickly we achieve full integration and realize the potential of our industry.

That blueprint for autonomy is already being drafted. It includes considerations for design, operationalization, integration, and safeguarding. Its material needs consist of policy and regulations, public engagement, safety and security, data management, testing and certification, among others. So just as an architect’s two-dimensional design becomes a three-dimensional reality, our community will come together to identify new perspectives, avoid potential incongruities, and keep apace in pursuit of our shared goal.

The 2023 Core Program includes a variety of session formats.

STEM PROGRAMMING

In 2022 XPONENTIAL STEM programming was developed in coordination with several industry partners to further encourage interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. 200 students from the Drones in School National Race and 9 local JROTC units attended the event in Orlando.
