Unmanned Systems Professionals

Unmanned Systems Take Center Stage at GSX 2019

Security professionals are relying more and more on unmanned and autonomous systems for their security needs, and they’re coming to Global Security Exchange (GSX) to get the latest information and technology upgrades. GSX is the one event that unites the entire spectrum of security—physical, cyber, and operational professionals—across all the industry sectors. Autonomous, unmanned systems still need human connections. GSX is your connection to a secure world.

Featured Unmanned Experience on the Show Floor


Supported by Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI)Back by popular demand! Whether in the air, on the ground, or underwater, unmanned robotics are changing the world of security and protection as we know it. Join us for a special feature area on the show floor to explore the use of unmanned and interactive robotics in security. See demonstrations  of the latest unmanned aircraft platforms, counter UAS systems, and ground-based robots seamlessly interacting with humans. And then take your own turn at the commands to pilot a drone through the “gauntlet”—our own UAV obstacle course.

The D3 learning theater is your one-spot destination to hear about real-world applications, implications, and challenges in security that come with these innovations. Industry experts, CSOs, and enforcement organizations will cut through the hype to provide answers to real-world questions such as:

• When is it ok to shoot a drone out of the sky?
• If drones can be flown in swarms, how hard would it be to weaponize these UAVs?
• Are DBIEDs (drone-based IEDs) for real?
• And so much more!

Find everything you need to know about GSX 2019 in the GSX DIGEST.

If you are looking to implement a drone program within your organization, need to hire a drone-as-a-service company to augment security, are concerned about how to counter the threat of rogue operators, seek to understand how to harden your facility to prying eyes or more dangerous incursions, or just want to learn about the latest cutting edge technologies, the GSX D3 will open your eyes to what’s possible!
