Registration are now open for Counter UAS Technology 2021

Announcing the first ever Counter UAS Technology Conference – Brand new to SMi’s portfolio. In Partnership with Aerospace Defense and Technology.

SMi Group’s Counter UAS Technology Conference will convene on the 6th – 7th December in Arlington, USA.

Brand new to SMi’s portfolio, this two-day event will focus on the very latest C-UAS technology in the market to ensure that DoD personnel, equipment and infrastructure are protected from the proliferation of hostile drones.

With the establishment of the US DoD Joint Counter-Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Office, (JCO) there is now a drive across the US Armed Forces to have a comprehensive and centralised approach to tackling the ever-evolving drone threat facing the nation. 

Why are SMi hosting this event?

In early 2021, the US Department of Defence released the ‘Counter-Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Strategy’ outlining the creation of a new Office dedicated to combatting UAS (the JCO). The Strategy demonstrated that the threat from UAS is becoming a more significant defence issue within the military and federal agencies and within the US there are more C-UAS projects being funded and developed. As all branches of the US military are developing C-UAS technologies to protect their forces, we saw the value in making this inaugural conference a USA focussed event.
