ARLINGTON, Va. - Feb. 7, 2020 - PRLog -- With near-peer adversaries aggressively pursuing RAS development, the US DoD is investing heavily in land robotics which are becoming ever more crucial for gaining overmatch in possible high-intensity conflict. These added investments in advanced technologies will increase Warfighter lethality, transform situational awareness and remove soldiers from dangerous situations.

For this reason, SMi Group are proud to present the newest addition to their sell-out Unmanned Systems portfolio: Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems USA, taking place in Arlington, VA on June 22-23 2020.
