Please join AUVSI New England for the New England UAS and AAM Summit 2024 on Tuesday, October 29 - Wednesday, October 30. This year’s theme, If We Build It, Will They Come?, will focus on the market challenges of building new aviation infrastructures as the future direction of UAS and AAM growth is still being defined.

The Summit, co-hosted by AUVSI New England, NDIA New England, and MassAutonomy, spans two action-packed days of presentations, exhibits, and networking opportunities, followed on Thursday, October 31 by an optional tour of a regional UAS/AAM innovation engine. Leaders from state and federal agencies, industry, and academia will come together to discuss progress, opportunities, and obstacles in UAS and AAM infrastructure development; will highlight industry approaches to cybersecurity; and will ask "Who's buying?" as these technologies mature.


*The 2024 program is being developed. Check back soon!*
