This event defines and showcases the GLOBAL commercial UAV industry, with a special tie-in into the world of advanced air mobility. In 2021, after a 2 year pandemic related absence, it was held live again and registered 2,700+ attendees from 61 nations, with 2,000 actually making the trip to attend (both at 85% of the previous record totals). It was a triumph - measured against most other tech events which have not exceeded 30% of their previous live audiences. It draws the power buyers and global influencers and sets the pace for the industry, with innovative formats, cutting-edge content, and unmatched excitement on the expo floor. It is a must-attend event and will convene 3,500 delegates and exhibitors from 6 continents.


Requirements from DoD & Government demands for increased spending year over year. In 2021, $7.5 billion was budgeted for a variety of robotic platforms and related Air – Land – Water (UxV) technologies. Unmanned Aircraft Systems future spending estimates are $10.6 billion annually and projected to be $13 billion in 2030. Military R&D is projected to add another $65 billion over 10 years. Unmanned Ground (UGV), Underwater (UUV), & Surface Vehicles (USV), are continuing to increase in market size & spending year over year with an estimated market size of over $7 billion in the next 4 years for (UGV’s) and over $10 billion for (UUV’s) and $1 billion + growth in the USV market. Military Robotics is expected to reach well over $25 billion in market size in the next 5 years! Join ACI’s Unmanned Systems West as our esteemed faculty and representatives will address emerging opportunities, capabilities, requirements and technologies, as well as their applications for UxV, and what this continued development means for our military.


The UAS Summit & Expo started as a small gathering of regional stakeholders. Now, 16 years later, the event in the Northern Plains of North Dakota has become a yearly major event for UAS experts from around the world. It’s the original epicenter of drone research, earned its place as the Silicon Valley of Drones and as you’ll see from the commercial, government and military flight activity filling the sky of the Northern Plains and beyond every day, it has truly become America’s UAS proving grounds. True to its trailblazing roots, this year’s event will unite industry thought leaders, policymakers and high-impact end-users like never before. A newly formed advisory committee representing the most influential UAS entities from the Silicon Valley of Drones has reimagined everything. Working with UAS end-use clients from inside and outside the industry, the advisory committee has taken bold steps to expand the Summit and reveal—through new and unique content never tried before, end-user input and a special attendee list of decisionmakers, buyers and big-names—what your future in UAS will be.
