50th Annual Targets, UAVs & Range Operations Symposium & Exhibition

This year's 50th Annual Symposium & Exhibition theme is, “The Future of Testing and Training.”  The goal of this three day, unclassified event will be to foster the technical exchange of information on current and future requirements for testing and training in a funding-short, threat-rich environment. Air systems will include piloted and remotely-piloted fixed and rotary-wing aircraft.  In addition, land and waterborne robotic vehicles and vessels will be included as focus areas.
