Agenda released for Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems conference 2019

SMi reports: Registration has opened, and the agenda has been released for Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems 2019

After the success of last years launch, SMi will host its second annual Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) conference, in April 2019, in London.


Register for the conference by 14th December to save £400!

With the UK MoD having recognised the potential of Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) to provide strategic superiority in military operations, the two-day conference will seek to further enhance and modernise the British Armys capabilities with new emerging technologies. Emerging technologies and their implication on future land warfare are vast and understanding the main issues behind land robotics is vital.

The UK MoD established 5 priorities in the development of RAS: Sustainability, Manoeuvrability, Situational Awareness, Lethality and Survivability. These five priorities are what Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems 2019 conference will revolve around. These will additionally encompass other main themes such as counter-IED, deep learning, AI, or communication systems.

Those who attend the conference can benefit from the latest updates on the UK MoDs Robotics and Autonomous Systems Enhancement Programmes; attend exclusive Military briefings from the United Kingdom, The United States, Finland, and the Netherlands; Discuss and debate the key role of unmanned technology in land operations through enhanced survivability, situational awareness, lethality, sustainability, and manoeuvrability; and benefit from a comprehensive approach to emerging land autonomous robotics with briefings from military, defence research and procurement agencies.

Opening the conference on day 1 will be keynote speakers Lieutenant Colonel Richard Craig, SO1 Coherence, Robotics and Autonomous Systems, British Army; Mr Charles E. Dean, Vice President of Sales, Endeavor Robotics; and Colonel Warren Sponsler, Deputy Director, Next Generation Combat Vehicle Cross Functional Team, US Army.

Opening the conference on day 2 will be keynote speakers Dr Robert Sadowski, Army Chief Roboticist Robotics ST, US Army RDECOM-TARDEC and Mr Peter Stockel, Innovation Autonomy Challenge Lead, DSTL, UK MoD.

New topics for 2019 include: CBRN Detection, Modularity, Advancements in Artificial Intelligence and Updates from the Robotics Complex Breach Concept.

Also new for this year, SMi will launch a dedicated pre-conference workshop hosted by Pardus Defence and Security, UK named ‘Enhancing Dismounted Soldier Operations with Military RAS. The workshop will be held on Tuesday 2nd April 2019 at the Holiday Inn, Kensington, London, UK.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
