In 2015, UMEX will also run an Unmanned Systems conference that explores the evolution of this technology. Unmanned systems are not only vital to the three main services but also increasingly used by police and coastguards as well expanding civilian functions. As the regional leader in the production and use of unmanned systems, the UAE is the perfect place to explore new uses for unmanned systems and what the industry and the military need to do to make this happen.

The Unmanned Systems Conference is part of the IDEX Defence Conferences. The conferences unite Defence Ministers, Chiefs of Staff, senior commanders from the UAE Armed Forces, government officials, senior decision makers and other commanding officers from international militaries.

Attendance crosses the armed services sectors, including army, navy, coast guard, marine, airforce and police force as well as senior executives from the defence industry and military experts.

For the first time, Air Recognition, media partner of UMEX 2015, will provide the Online Show Daily news coverage and Web TV Channel of UMEX 2015 with report, news, pictures and video.
