Day Three - Unmanned for Good

Thursday, May 3 | 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

In the wake of multiple hurricanes, wildfires and other natural disasters last year, unmanned systems across all domains became widely recognized as the future of disaster relief. From search and rescue to humanitarian missions, unmanned technologies were utilized around the world providing aid to those who needed it most. Our Thursday keynotes are dedicated to the humanitarian and public safety communities and the responders who risk their lives every day to make us all safer.

The AUVSI XCELLENCE Humanitarian award recipients will be announced during a special ceremony followed by an interactive discussion with first responders who conducted numerous unmanned missions in response to Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria as well as the recent wildfires.
