AUS&R 2020 – Attend the Leading Unmanned Systems and Robotics Event

unmanned systems
The Air Force environmental program launched an unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), multi-spectral sensors and machine-learning algorithms to map, survey and inventory land in an effort to help endangered species at Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis, Sept. 4, 2019. This project is part of the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center Innovation Office to leverage the latest unmanned aerial vehicle technology to transform the Air Force environmental program. The effort, a partnership between AFIMSC and the Air Force Innovation Hub Network (AFWERX), began as an idea to improve land surveying – for floodplain mapping, vegetation classification or endangered species identification.

Thanks to their accelerated technological development and their endless applications, unmanned systems on the ground, air, and sea currently attract the highest interest both in the military and HLS sectors and the commercial, civilian aspects. During the COVID-19 pandemic, these systems have offered immediate and unique solutions as enforcement, remote control and treatment, and more.

iHLS is organizing the 9th AUS&R 2020, Israel’s largest unmanned systems and robotics event, that will showcase the latest technologies in the field.  

This year, the conference will be held in collaboration with the Association of Engineers and AUVSI Israel.

The event will showcase live demonstrations of innovative platforms, drone swarms on security missions, a robot-drones collaboration in an agricultural mission, drones in delivery missions, indoor drones, etc.

AUS&R 2020 will be held on September 7 at the Lago Conference Center, Rishon LeZion west.

Conference Chairman – Col. (res.) Ofer Haruvi, an expert active in the remotely manned systems field for over 30 years. 

Among the lecturers – Senior IDF officers and prominent industry representatives; Chief Superintendent Amit Lifschitz, Acting Head of R&D Division, Israel Police; Maj. Gen. (res.) Eliezer Shkedi, former IAF Commander; Yair Ramati, iHLS Board member; Maj. Gen. (res.) Avi Mizrachi, UVision CEO; Jeffrey A. Miller and Dr. Andrew Shepherd from Sinclair College, and many more.

Ground and aerial demonstrations will be conducted during the event, with focus on innovation, the integration of advanced technologies, and the exposure of dozens of startup companies.

The event will include an intense, fascinating program with the participation of officials from the leading defense industries, the military, security and law enforcement services, investors, and research centers, and will discuss the various aspects of robotic and unmanned systems advancement and development.
