About The Unmanned Aircraft Systems East Conference

Amid the recent urging by the Secretary of Defense for more unmanned ISR aircraft in the field at a faster rate, 2010 budget plans for Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) platforms and technology has predictably risen once again as billions of dollars continue to be directed toward both procurement and research and development. While the Air Force continues with plans to purchase more unmanned aircraft than regular aircraft for the first time ever, the other Services along with several Joint Offices and Combatant Commands are integrating unmanned aircraft at a quicker pace while also demanding more sophisticated capabilities.

This comprehensive conference brings together key officials and representatives from both government and industry that will examine the recent developments, most critical capability gaps, and likely future direction for unmanned aircraft systems.
