U.S. Air Force to share UAV development plans at the UAV Technology USA 2023 Conference

Key U.S. Air Force speakers at the forefront of UAV development and integration has been announced to speak at the UAV Technology USA in February 2023.

Recently, senior U.S. Air Force officials have provided new details about the service's vision for integrating an evolving set of autonomous capabilities onto new uncrewed aircraft, as well as the groundwork that has already been laid through various recent testing initiatives.


The Air Force views advances in autonomy as absolutely at the core of its plans for a forthcoming fleet of drones designed to work collaboratively with crewed platforms. *

For this reason, the UAV Technology USA conference, taking place on February 6-7, 2023, in Arlington, VA, will provide a valuable forum for attendees to gain an understanding of the U.S. Air Force's development plans of these capabilities.
