I-HLS and Defense Update are excited to present AUS&R 2013 – a unique opportunity for developers, manufacturers, OEM, service providers and operators of unmanned systems, to display and demonstrate their capabilities to professional audience.

Policy makers, uniformed service leaders, law enforcement and industry partners will gather here to network, share best practices and explore potential paths for future cooperation.


The following systems will be displayed on the static and LIVE display at AUS&R 2013


live demonstration of unmanned vehicles
in the air, on land and at sea!

Reflecting Israel’s leadership in the field of unmanned systems field, AUS&R 2013 will provide the opportunity to display numerous platforms, systems and solutions from Israel and abroad, demonstrated live on site!

The live display will comprise three sessions, 45 min. each. The sessions will include air, land and naval vehicles. The performance of different mission payloads will be presented to the audience over large video screens. The event will also provide extensive audio-visual support to display demonstrations on videos throughout the day.

Planned Agenda

AUS&R conference will focus on the following tracks:

Solutions | Platforms | Missions

Highlighting present and future aspects of unmanned systems, and their use in military, homeland security and civil applications, AUS&R 2013 provides the perfect stage to discuss the prospects and challenges facing autonomous and unmanned systems operations in the air, land and at sea.

The Solutions Track will host senior decision makers in the military and intelligence branches, defense and homeland security ministries, government agencies, and organizations as well as security services in the private and public sector, in Israel and abroad, are invited to attend and discuss the applications, benefits and challenges of unmanned systems. Defense related topics would highlight the roles of unmanned systems’ providing new capabilities like persistent surveillance, terrain dominance and force protection. HLS related topics will discuss how maritime security can leverage unmanned systems technologies to offer improved and affordable security over wide coastal, littoral and blue waters. In addition, this track will explore innovative technologies introducing lifesaving capabilities for first responders – bomb disposal teams, firefighters, medics and rescue teams, operating in hazardous environment, on land, in the air, at sea and underwater. We will also learn about the evasive tactics developed by terrorists facing the unmanned perils for over a decade.

The Platforms Track is designed for senior executives from leading industries in Israel and abroad, researchers and developers from the academy, government and military. Here they will share the platforms track, discussing the future aspects of robotic platforms. This track will cover a wide list of topics, including an examination of weaponized unmanned platforms, the integration of human and machine, evolving command, control and communications toward intelligent, synchronized, multi-robot swarms and autonomous, robotic space applications. We will also examine the proliferation of unmanned systems technology by terror groups.

The missions track highlights the latest capabilities and technologies enabling users and operators to improve the use of existing and future systems already deployed in the field. Delegates invited to this track include users and operators from the military, government agencies and private sector, service providers (outsourcing, training and support) here they will meet industry representatives and developers offering auxiliary systems and tools for unmanned systems (manipulators, payloads, system upgrades, illuminators, displays, controllers, power-packs, load bearing, packing etc.)
