Trends and Predictions: Preparing the Industry for 2019


Host: Tom McMahon | Senior VP of Advocacy and Government Relations

Over the last year unmanned systems have played a more visible and positive role than ever before. Drones were used to survey hurricane damage and monitor wildfires; automated vehicles took to the streets in Pittsburgh and Boston; and maritime systems monitored environmental changes. These accomplishments represent only a small fraction of this community’s potential. 2017 brought substantial changes to the unmanned systems industry and we’re poised to continue this growth well into the future.

This webinar will feature representatives from across commercial markets who have used unmanned technology in a new way this year. We’ll also hear from analysts who gauge the industry’s progress and predict where next year will take us. The future is unmanned!

Who Should Attend?

  • Venture capitalists and investors
  • Individuals interested in the unmanned systems industry
  • Market analysts

Ron Stearns, Market Analyst, Robotics and Unmanned Systems Consultant
Shimon Elkabetz, CEO and Co-Founder, ClimaCell
Mark Rosekind, Chief Safety Innovation Officer, Zoox
Dan Ridlon, Counsel, Perkins Coie LLP

This webinar is complimentary for all attendees.
Registration will close at 11:00 AM EST the day of the webinar.
