New England UAS & AAM Summit – Boarding Pass to the Next Era of Aviation

October 4, 2023 @ 8:00 am - October 5, 2023 @ 5:00 pm


Please join us for New England’s UAS and AAM Summit 2023, Boarding Pass to the Next Era of Aviation, on Wednesday, October 4, and Thursday, October 5, 2023, co-hosted by AUVSI New EnglandMassAutonomy, and NDIA New England. Government, industry, and academic leaders from across the country will discuss UAS and AAM progress, opportunities, and obstacles as we develop and implement this critical technology in society and daily life.

New England is a national innovation hub of talent, market opportunities, and leadership across government, industry, universities, non-profits, and start-ups. The region’s varied geography, population density, transportation needs, and infrastructure assets offer countless scenarios and testing possibilities for UAS and AAM use case development. Its diversity renders New England a valuable location for industry and researchers to develop, test, and expand the adoption of UAS and AAM operations.

This year’s Summit will once again be held over two days at the Northeastern University Innovation Campus in Burlington, MA. It features numerous keynote speakers, engaging panel discussions, a PitchFest for innovators and start-ups, multiple exhibitors, live demonstrations, networking breaks, and many more opportunities to engage with regional and national leaders. The Summit is an excellent opportunity to learn about what is happening across the industry on the national and international levels and an invaluable chance to experience New England’s rich UAS and AAM ecosystem!

Join us during our beautiful New England autumn at our annual New England UAS and AAM Summit 2023 for two days of immersive discussion on the future of airspace!
