Unmanned Aerial Systems Midwest conference in Dayton

Government, aerospace industry and academic experts across the country will converge in Dayton to share their visions of the future of drones. The two-day Unmanned Aerial Systems Midwest conference will launch Tuesday at the Dayton Convention Center. Organizers expect hundreds of attendees at the gathering, formerly called UAS Ohio and started in 2012. The name change was meant to broaden the conference’s reach and attract more states as it competes with more places that organize industry conventions, McDonald said.
