18 Defence & Security Equipment International (DSEI) remains the single largest exhibition and conference for governments, armed forces and industry leaders to gather together and discuss the latest issues and requirements of the global supply chains for defence and security technology. The biennial event, being held on September 10-14, will host 1600-plus exhibitors from more than 60 countries, with a huge array of vehicle and technology manufacturers among them. The newest unmanned vehicles are expected to continue being displayed prominently among the systems being exhibited and launched. The ability to efficiently and persistently acquire intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance imagery using advanced UAVs and other unmanned systems is prized by security forces worldwide. Furthermore, improvements in autonomy enable reductions in work burdens and personal risk to soldiers as well as police, firefighters, first responders and other key public services. As ever, the event will be held at the ExCeL, in London’s Docklands, and inside the many exhibitions halls, vehicles and tech will be arranged across zones corresponding to theatres of operation, with aerospace, land, naval, security and joint zones available. Outside on the Thames, there will be a naval zone for static displays and live demonstrations of new USV and UUV systems. In addition, DSEI 2019 will hold its first ever ‘Manufacturing Hub’, which will showcase the materials, parts and services from Tier 2, 3 and 4 companies for engineers from the defence sector to investigate. The latest in CAD software, connectors, additive manufacturing and many other key technologies will be exhibited there too. The conferences will feature more than 300 speakers from governments, militaries and companies to present up- to-date announcements and analyses on critical strategic and technological topics.

Intergeo 2019 will run from September 17 to 19 in the Messe Stuttgart, and following the trend in the past few years, unmanned aerial and ground vehicles will feature more heavily than ever. With last year’s iteration of the event bringing together 640 exhibitors from 41 countries, as well as nearly 20,000 The 4th annual UAV Technology Conference will be held in London’s Copthorne Tara Hotel from September 30 to October 1. Dedicated to showcasing, discussing and analysing the latest capabilities visitors, this year’s Intergeo is expected to be larger still, particularly with Stuttgart’s long-running history as a hub of cutting- edge vehicle engineering. The show has consistently broadcast the capabilities of unmanned systems not only for agriculture and infrastructure inspections, but for a huge range of other industries and applications, such as real estate, construction, water management and environmental conservation. Among the various sections of the show floor, Interaerial Solutions will be dedicated to UAV manufacturers, of unmanned aircraft in multi-domain mission environments, the event will include presentations from dozens of high-ranking military personnel representing NATO and its member countries. A range of strategic and technological developers of software for geo-spatial survey and analysis, and producers of critical supporting components such as GNSS, data links and sensor payloads. And this year’s Intergeo will play host to the first ever European Drone Summit, a new conference programme dedicated to topics such as the safe integration of unmanned aircraft into national airspaces, security concerns and provisions, and vital urban applications of UAVs such as medical services.
