It is a great pleasure to invite you to the International Symposium on Unmanned Systems and the Defense Industry 2022 (ISUDEF), which will be held in a Hybrid Mode on May 30 – June 1, 2022.

Unmanned systems are one of the fastest growing and widely developing technologies in the world, offering a number of possibilities for a variety of research fields, including the defense industry. As we are in an era in which there is continuous progress in unmanned systems and homeland defense, we would like to invite researchers, scientists, engineers, practitioners, policymakers, and students to the International Symposium on Unmanned Systems and the Defense Industry to exchange information, present new technologies and developments, and discuss the future direction, strategies, and key priorities moving forward.

ISUDEF, an international, multi-disciplinary symposium, aims to address current topics on unmanned systems and the defense industry in such broad areas as aerial, naval and land applications; avionics; and radar systems & air defense. Specifically, researchers may wish to present their solutions and insights on such topics as platform designs, AI integration, robotics, and autonomous systems to provide innovative solutions to the challenges facing the homeland defense industry, along with civilian applications.

ISUDEF will include several keynote presentations, specialized sessions, workshops, and oral & poster presentation sessions from participants on the different subjects submitted. We look forward to welcoming you to this remarkable event in May 2022.
