Utah UAS Summit

You're invited to the Utah UAS Summit

Join us for the Utah Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Summit, coming up on September 27, 2018 at the Ogden Airport.



If you are a Scientist, Defense Member/Contractor, Engineer, Educator, Lawmaker, Public Safety Official, Investor, or Entrepreneur engaged in unmanned systems technology, this summit is for you.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, over 1 million drones had been registered as of January 2018. This underscores the importance that the high-growth Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) industry will have on the future of defense, security, public safety, commerce, research, agriculture, natural resource development, and dozens of other industries. Due to intense growth, the need for policies and technology to manage this emerging industry is essential.

Ogden City, in cooperation with Deseret UAS and Box Elder County, is hosting a conference on the politics, business, and future of drones to be held September 27th at the Ogden Airport Kemp Jet Center. UAS demonstrations will take place at the end of the conference at the Ogden Airport.

Conference speakers include leaders in defense, researchers from Utah’s major universities, industry leaders, and entrepreneurs.

Please contact Terrence Bride with any questions at (801) 791-9212 or e-mail.
