+ more

Both pilots and companies are navigating a thin line between security and innovation. Host Grant Guillot talks with leaders, influencers, and experts across the drone industry to guide us through the complex web of technology and policy in the United States.

 

XPONENTIAL 2021, an unmanned systems industry event that brings together end-users, technologists, and policymakers, will hold both a virtual and in-person conference this year. As a preview, Drones in America host Grant Guillot welcomed four members of the AUVSI team. Brian Wynne, President and CEO, Michael Wilbur, Director of Engagement, Mike Greeson, Director of Business Development & Strategy, and Keely Griffith, Director of Industry Education gave listeners the inside scoop.

“Autonomy is increasingly important with tremendous potential. To realize it, we have to come together as a community to address technology, policy, and integration. We also need to encourage public acceptance, which is based on trust, requiring trustworthy systems.” – Keely Griffith

Wynne first introduced the theme as Assured Autonomy and what to expect at XPONENTIAL 2021. “We’ll have two events, one that’s hybrid in May and an in-person event in August in Atlanta. We’re doubling up this year.”

Digging deeper into the theme and content, Griffith said, “Autonomy is increasingly important with tremendous potential. To realize it, we have to come together as a community to address technology, policy, and integration. We also need to encourage public acceptance, which is based on trust, requiring trustworthy systems.”

Wilbur described what attendees can expect from the virtual event. “It’s more intuitive and engaging than last year and a real immersive experience. It also enables flexibility for attendees to enjoy content. We have some webinars on the site right now where speakers are teasing presentations.”

Greeson followed up on the platform, describing some new features. “We have the buyer’s guide, a self-service tool, where attendees can search for solutions. We also have the product runway. Executives can hear pitches from solution providers and learn what sets them apart.”

Attendee networking, conversation opportunities, and learning will be core to both events this year, as the industry continues to show its benefits and applications in meaningful ways.
