Unmanned Combat Air Vehicles (UCAV) 2014

With the recent first flight trials of Taranis and the second set of carrier trials for the X-47B, momentum in UCAV development is gathering. Nations are looking towards next generation air combat systems as part of their long term air capability frameworks, with UCAVs featuring heavily. In what capacity, and to what extent they will replace manned systems is a key area for debate.

Defence IQ is delighted to announce UCAV 2014 taking place between 30-31 July in London

This exclusive event will examine UCAVs’ critical capabilities, looking specifically at challenges such as autonomy protocols, integration with manned systems and how platforms can be developed to operate in contested airspace with stealth and counter measures. This will be complemented with the wider doctrinal, political and ethical discussion.
