AUVSI 2009

AUVS LogoThis year’s AUVSI (Autonomous Unmanned Vehicle Systems International) Unmanned Systems North America conference was held last week (10-13 August) at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

 Concurrent with the conference was the launch of AUVS – Australia, an official affiliate of the international organization. Dr K.C. Wong, the new chairman, said “This is a significant step in establishing an accredited and functional association whereby the unmanned systems industry in Australia can be appropriately represented.”

 AOS was delighted with the opportunity to be one of the 13 founding members of AUVS – Australia. The group was a cross-section of Australian government, industry and academia that included BAE Systems, Boeing Defence, CSIRO and the University of Sydney (see press release for complete list).

Andy Park, AOS US, represented the company at the Unmanned Systems conference and reported that interest in the new Australian affiliate was keen and their information stand, manned by Reece Clothier and Rod Walker, was very well attended.
