Abu Dhabi: Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) and Tawazun Economic Council in cooperation with the Supreme Command of the UAE Armed Forces, is set to organise a special conference on the Unmanned Systems Exhibition and Conference (UMEX) and Simulation and Training Exhibition and Conference (SimTEX) on February 22, 2020.

Under the theme ‘Manned-Unmanned Teaming in the Age of Smart Systems’, the special conference will be held one day prior to the launch of UMEX and SimTEX 2020, both of which will take place in Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

The conference will attract experts, decision makers, senior officials and academics working in the unmanned systems, simulation and training sectors. Promoting the UAE as a global destination for conferences specialised in unmanned systems and simulation and training systems, and to keep abreast of the latest scientific and technological developments in this field, share best practices as well as become aware of the latest Research & Development in this ever-changing field.   

The conference sessions will discuss possible solutions to the challenges facing our world in the light of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The agenda will cover four main themes; the first one is the Human Dimension, which will discuss manned and unmanned teaming in the age of autonomy. In the second discussion, subject matter experts will discuss missions and operations that examine the role of unmanned systems in supporting multi-domain operations, in addition to missions and operations in line with the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The third theme, entitled Industry and Market, will examine the future of the unmanned systems sector and the integration and interoperability of unmanned systems.  

Finally, border security has been added to this year's conference as a fourth theme and as one of the main topics for debate and discussions. It is one of the new topics at the conference where experts and decision makers on the border security sector will discuss the implications of the digital age on joint action in ports and border security as well as its new intellectual approach in the light of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The conference provides a global platform where experts address the most urgent developments facing the world under the Fourth Industrial Revolution in addition to the new challenges and opportunities it poses. It will also seek innovative solutions to challenges and foresee the future in a world of accelerated scientific developments and innovations and increased reliance on unmanned systems and artificial intelligence.
