Mid-America Defense Conference
On September 18-19, 2013, the National Center for Complex Operations (NCCO) and Indiana State University presented the Mid-America Defense Conference, an informative event showcasing the use of unmanned systems in multiple national security and first response applications. These incredible platforms are having a profound impact around the globe in agriculture, public safety, drug-trafficking surveillance, disaster response, space exploration, weather forecasting, and even assessing events like the gulf oil-spill.
The Mid-America Defense Conference takes a comprehensive look at emerging and future unmanned system strategies and applications, and ways the government, academia, and industry are working closely together in innovative and symbolic relationships. In Indiana specifically, the “Indiana Defense Corridor” offers a unique blend of capabilities, assets, and personnel and infrastructure supporting the research, development, testing, evaluation, training and operation of unmanned systems and robotics unequaled anywhere in the world.
