The purpose of the 2017 Ground Robotics Capabilities Conference & Exhibition is to provide a forum for Industry and Government stakeholders to engage in honest dialogue to determine how to realize the robotics and autonomous systems vision across all Services of the U.S. military.
There are several new rapid innovation efforts across the Department of Defense that are gaining additional emphasis and budget share. Organizations like DiUX, with a new office in Boston, and the Army's new Rapid Capabilities Office (RCO) are eagerly reaching out to industry for submissions. Robotics and Autonomous Systems, IT and Cyber technologies are all sought-after capabilities driving these new lines of effort. It is a time of transformation with exciting opportunities and potential for collaboration.
