Chair of the conference, Dr Craig Robin, Chief Executive Officer, EO Solutions, said: “it’s important to see what that government and DoD perspective is. Where are their priorities, where should we internally be investing and looking, to keep up with the future and to deliver the capability today.

I’m personally interested to see where the government is strategically on keeping pace with the counter UAS threat. On the government side, they come to this conference to see what innovative things we’re doing and how we’re responding to that.”
