DSEI 2017 to Showcase the Latest Unmanned Technologies

By Caroline Rees / 01 Sep 2017

Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI), the world leading defence and security event, will be showcasing the latest unmanned technologies at ExCeL, London, 12 – 15 September 2017.

The use of unmanned technology has increased rapidly over recent years, both for military and civilian purposes. The global landscape is quickly evolving and information in the battlespace is moving faster than ever. In this dynamic environment, it’s critical to act on information as soon as it is available. Leveraging the technological advances of unmanned systems and combining them with legacy manned systems enables rapid action during missions. Successful teaming also has the potential to increase situational awareness and improve combat efficiency and effectiveness.

The unmanned systems market in the defence industry is projected to grow rapidly in all areas. For instance, the Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) market is projected to grow from USD 2.69 billion in 2017 to USD 5.20 billion by 2022 and global demand for the UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) market is projected to grow by 6% each year from now until 2020, reaching USD 28.27 billion by 2022.

DSEI 2017 will showcase the latest unmanned technologies and products across its five dedicated zones – Air, Land, Naval, Security and Joint. The seminar programme will also feature expert talks on the industry and offer networking opportunities for both exhibitors and visitors.

Companies showcasing unmanned vehicles and technologies will include Israel Aerospace Industries, Liquid Robotics, Strategic Robotic Systems and Chess Dynamics alongside a catalogue of prime contractors.

Liquid Robotics will showcase the Wave Glider and have experts on hand to discuss solutions for ASW, ISR and Surface Vessel Detection. Gary Gysin, President & CEO of Liquid Robotics, a Boeing Company, commented: “As an innovator in autonomous surface vehicles, we attend DSEI because of the opportunity to spotlight how Wave Gliders provide real-time, undersea information and intelligence critical to the future of naval superiority.”

Nations, prime contractors and SMEs will be looking either to extend the life of their legacy equipment through upgrade and life extension, or to take advantage of new technology and invest in game changing solutions. Across this spectrum of activity, DSEI will provide the context, the content and the contacts for attendees to access knowledge and develop effective solutions within the unmanned systems market.

Duncan Reid, DSEI Event Director, said: ‘Unmanned technologies have become an important part of the defence and security industry. DSEI 2017 will be showcasing the latest technologies and gathering prominent actors of the unmanned systems market to start new collaborations and discuss the industry’s future’.

DSEI will take place 12 – 15 September at ExCeL London. For more information and to register to attend please visit: www.DSEI.co.uk
