Organised in association with AMDA Foundation, the Australian Association for Unmanned Systems conference at Land Forces will attract Defence, Industry & Academia from around the world to present, promote and discuss unmanned technologies.

The conference will be held during the Land Forces event and will focus on unmanned technologies relevant to future defence programs, particularly land force applications.

AAUS events are focused on broadening professional relationships amongst members and key industry end users. Our events are strongly supported by key Defence personnel and there will be opportunities to meet with them during the conference and at the conference networking event.

The registration fee also includes admission into the conference networking function.
