Why Attend? Hear from Past Delegates:
- “The NDIA Ground Robotics meeting is really the best forum for the exchange of information, ideas and methodologies on unmanned ground systems. This conference always features speakers and panels that address the issues, focus areas and goals as they have been laid out by DoD’s Ground Robotics Vision."
- "You’ll participate in an honest dialogue for identifying the technologies capable of satisfying the future needs of the Warfighter.”
- “This conference allowed me to determine exactly what capabilities industry currently has in order to make my work easier. Overall, a great event.”
- “A perfect mix of government and industry personnel.”
About the Conference
The ability of robots to save lives has secured a path for ground robotics’ future alongside the warfighter. Ground robotics, rapidly adopted during the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, has enabled the U.S. and its allies to be more effective, efficient, and protected in a range of different missions, such as Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), Combat Engineering, and Reconnaissance. With a waning defense budget, uncertainty of future budgets, and a leaner military force, an
opportunity presents itself for new, efficient and effective technologies, to continue to extend and complement the warfighter’s capabilities. It’s more important than ever to bring together industry leaders and service-users, on one stage, in order to explore these emerging trends and determine, “What does the Next Era of Ground Robotics Hold?”
The purpose of the 2014 Ground Robotics Capabilities Conference & Exhibition is to provide a forum for Industry and Government to have an honest dialogue for identifying the technologies that will be able to meet the future needs of the warfighter.
