The UK MoD has recognised the potential of Military Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS) to provide strategic superiority in military operations.

After the success of last year’s launch, SMi will host its second annual Military Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS) conference, in April 2019, in London. The event will seek to further enhance and modernise the British Army’s capabilities with new emerging technologies. Emerging technologies and their implication on future land warfare are vast and understanding the main issues behind land robotics is vital.
The UK MoD established 5 priorities in the development of RAS: Sustainability, Manoeuvrability, Situational Awareness, Lethality and Survivability. These five priorities are what RAS 2019 conference will revolve around.
These will additionally encompass other main themes such as counter-IED, deep learning, AI, or communication systems

Conference Highlights:
New for 2019: CBRN Detection, Modularity, advancements in Artificial Intelligence and updates from the Robotics Complex Breach Concept, also benefit from a comprehensive approach to emerging land autonomous robotics with briefings from military, defence research, procurement agencies and military.
