About the Event

SMi is delighted to announce the launch of Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) conference taking place in London, UK on 25th and 26th April 2018.

The UK MoD has recognised the potential of Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS) to provide strategic superiority in military operations. As a means of establishing the opportunities that swift adoption of RAS would provide the British Army, SMi’s Robotics and Autonomous Systems Conference will seek to enhance and modernise the British Army’s capabilities with new emerging technologies.

The UK MoD established five priorities in the development of RAS: Sustainability, Manoeuvrability, Situational Awareness, Lethality and Survivability. These five priorities are are the focus of the RAS 2018 conference. These will additionally encompass other main themes such as counter-IED, AI, interoperability, and communication systems.
