Unmanned aerial systems (UASs), unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs), unmanned surface vessels (USVs), and unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) continue to be force multipliers for the U.S. military operations. These platforms not only deliver lethality in wartime but also feed the Department of Defense (DoD) thirst for sensor data, collecting critical intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) during peacetime. Performance and capability requirements flowing out of the DoD are driving innovation at the payload, sensor, avionics, and communications level. Powered by Military Embedded Systems, the Unmanned Systems Virtual Conference is designed to drive awareness and thought leadership around embedded electronics technology for unmanned systems from artificial intelligence to signal processing to avionics safety certification; it will also examine strategies for applying a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) in such designs.
