With field-proven tactical fixed wing and rotary wing UAS, optionally piloted helicopters, a complete range of sensors, Leonardo is at the forefront of autonomous flight.
Intrepid Minds will also be returning to the conference as a Sponsor for the two-day event and will be presenting on day 1 of the conference. Delegates will be able to have individual one-to-one meetings with them in the exhibition area. Intrepid Minds have been developing autonomous technologies, infrastructure and supportive tools for multiple industries including defence. Intrepid Minds are keen innovators and have completed numerous Innovate UK, KTN, FP7 and H2020 projects. Over the last 8 years Intrepid Minds have developed numerous drone technologies and supportive systems that have been used by various companies and government organisations in the collection, analysis and dissemination of data, development of new waterborne technologies, components and controls. Working with these organisations has allowed Intrepid Minds to have unique access to a wide range of specialist components that allow development of their own technologies to support the future of maritime systems.
