The Ridge and Valley Chapter of the Association for Uncrewed Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) seeks to advance uncrewed systems technology and to raise awareness of the region as a center of technical expertise. An essential element in the advancement of uncrewed systems is partnership. Of course, robotic systems are increasingly interconnected with each other and with the people who use them; these partnerships are driving critical advances in autonomy and robotics. But human partnerships are also critical. Research partnerships spawn transformational new technologies. Workforce development partnerships provide a reliable flow of adaptable, well-trained workers. Economic development partnerships create conditions to accelerate commercial growth. Come meet with us this Fall in the beautiful New River Valley as we discuss the latest advances in uncrewed systems and the partnerships that make them possible.
