The Small Unmanned Systems Business Expo

sUAS News Group and the Silicon Valley Chapter of AUVSI, et al are putting on the first of its kind International Small Unmanned System Business Exposition in San Francisco on July 25-26, 2013. What this represents is a leap forward for the rest of the unmanned systems community. Attendees will not see any of the trade show customary fare. Namely, air superiority gray aircraft or militarized systems.

The small business community has long been lost in the sea of DoD vendor offerings at the industry shows, playing nearly third or fourth fiddle. Here, the positive uses will be showcased and highlighted for industry and the public to see and better understand. Offering insights into feeding a hungry world, managing limited resources, sustaining our environs and other use that will help us develop and evolve a more peaceful and inclusive place to live for all mankind. These are the applications that never seem to get their due.

The event will be a two-day symposium with speakers who have first hand experience in the unmanned systems business sector. Slated thus far, Tad McGeer Aerovel Corp, Chris Anderson, 3D Robotics, Patrick Egan, sUAS News, Gene Robinson, RPFlight Systems, Chad Partridge, 2D3 Sensing Dr. Jerry Lemieux, Unmanned Vehicle University, Rory Paul, Volt Aerial Robotics, Matthew Schroyer, Drone

The Unmanned Vehicle University will be offering two-day courses during the exposition on the following topics:

Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle Fundamentals

A portion of the proceeds will go towards educational outreach and also the Global Airspace Integration effort.
