Learn what's next

USDPS has been completely reimagined to include more opportunities to learn from industry and government thought-leaders and shop for the latest technology. Topics extend beyond defense and cover infrastructure, protection, disaster response, security, identification and authentication and include government agencies such as DHS, FBI, DOE, DOI, DOJ, and NOAA just to name a few.

This year, the focus is on:

  • Counter-UAS: How are defense leaders, government officials and law enforcement mitigating and responding to UAS threats?
  • Innovation: Emerging technology and trends covering AI, cybersecurity, unmanned swarming and much more
  • Investment: How and where organizations like DHS, ONR, JIDO, NOAA, DOJ, public safety agencies and many others are investing resources into unmanned technology
  • Sustainment: Opportunities in training, logistics, resupply and maintenance
  • Public Safety: How are defense leaders, homeland security professionals, law enforcement and industry experts using drones?
