TYSONS CORNER, VA, June 5, 2017 – The Potomac Officers Club — a division of Executive Mosaic — has finalized the panel of speakers for the Unmanned Systems Forum.
As the use of military UAVs and commercial drones become more ubiquitous, innovative new uses of the technology have emerged. The military capabilities enabled by UAVs, such as multi-aircraft control, swarm control and operation in denied environments, are revolutionizing our conception of the battlefield.
Join the Potomac Officers Club for the Unmanned Systems Forum to hear leaders in both the public and private sector discuss new innovations and uses for UAVs.
“The Potomac Officers Club is looking forward to hosting the Unmanned Systems Forum,” said Jim Garrettson, President and CEO of Executive Mosaic. “Due to the considerable focus the public and private sectors have placed on the use of unmanned systems, this is an especially timely event. I am confident that our panel of distinguished speakers will provide key insights into what innovations we can expect in the field of unmanned systems and how these new technologies can be used most efficiently.”
The Forum will be held on Tuesday, June 6th at 2941 Restaurant at 2941 Fairview Park Drive, Falls Church, VA 22042.
