Increasing Operational Options Using RAS Technology and Innovation

IDGA is excited to announce the return of our Robotics and Autonomous Systems Summit. This is the only event of its kind in the United States. There is no other Robotic and Autonomous Systems event that is strictly military and government focused. IDGA will bring together leaders from across all sectors of the government, as well as leading industry experts, to talk challenges, upcoming strategies, and collaboration initiatives for Robotic and Autonomous Systems.

Our summit will highlight the upcoming strategies for maintaining over match capabilities and implementing new technologies which will ultimately give our military better protection, better situational awareness, and make our forces more resilient. Join us to find out more about this innovative topic.
