Join NVTC in partnership with the Virginia Unmanned Systems Center at CIT as we bring together leading experts across the commercial, defense, regulatory, and academic sectors as they discuss the opportunities, challenges, and impacts of autonomous technology at the Autonomous Technology Summit of Virginia. The Summit will take place on November 7, 2019 at the Inova Center for Personalized Health. The event will provide a unique platform to showcase "Virginia's Leadership in Autonomous Systems Technology" and highlight best practices, new business models and technology transfers that have a national impact.

The Summit will focus on the various economic ecosystems for autonomous technology and systems in Virginia, while also attracting stakeholders from across North America to share opportunities to leverage Virginia's expertise and innovations.

The Summit will also be a platform to launch a campaign that garners press and media opportunities that promote Virginia, NVTC and member companies, along with sponsors to wider audience.
