Kansas and Oklahoma’s aviation histories are filled with a long list of people and companies who have helped transform this region into a premier aviation and aerospace destination. The announcement in early 2018 that Kratos Defense & Security Solutions would be moving part of its design, engineering and manufacturing facilities to Oklahoma City so it can build its jet-powered drones for the military shows that the region is also fast becoming a drone hotbed.
Join us in Broken Arrow, Okla., September 12-13, for the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Tech Forum and hear the strategies Oklahoma’s federal, state and city officials used to entice Kratos to select Oklahoma as a place to expand their drone operations and what impact that game-changing decision is already making within the region. During this session, learn how your city can attract attention from industry leaders and what makes them want to set up shop in your community.
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin will help kick off the first full day of the Tech Forum with a morning welcome, followed by the opening plenary featuring ISR Ideas’ James Poss, former director of the ASSURE program. Then get ready for an agenda packed with amazing panels, technology presentations and speakers, including AUVSI Senior Vice President Tom McMahon.
Other poignant and worthwhile sessions during the UAS Tech Forum will focus on other UAS-related areas, including weather data collection, cybersecurity, UAS integration, developing UAS champions, recent NASA innovations, and much more!
