NEW YORK, NY, October 24, 2018 – Unmanned Security Expo New York will debut November 14-15, 2018 as a standalone event open to qualified security & public safety professionals providing or looking to source autonomous solutions for commercial, government and first responders security and safety, drone detection/counter drone system applications, updates and education about FAA regulations and more. The launch is an expansion of the success of the Unmanned Security segment at parent company Reed Exhibition’s flagship security event – ISC West (Las Vegas) – anticipating the growing need for companies to build more comprehensive plans that allow them to be faster and smarter at detecting, mitigating and preventing security risks. The 2018 event will be co-located with ISC East and Infosecurity New York at the Javits Center-over 8,000 security professionals, buyers and influencers will be granted access to all three events.

“Unmanned Security Expo spotlights critical new technology for protecting people and assets in a changing threat landscape,” explained ISC Group Vice President, Will Wise. “As awareness and adoption are on the rise, we are excited to be the first ground and aerial robotics event dedicated to physical security & public safety applications. This is a pivotal time to be educating the industry and introducing it to important new technology and service providers. The event features leading brands and important emerging technology in all aspects of autonomous security solutions including ground and aerial robotics, components and power solutions, consulting and services and UAS detection and counter UAS technology.”

Alongside ISC East’s 270+ exhibits, the dedicated Unmanned Security Expo floor will feature over 25 innovative companies representing the upper echelon of their respective product categories including: AeroDefense, Autel Robotics, Cape Aerial Telepresence, Cobalt Robotics, FlytSecurity, Ghost Robotics, Pix4D, redUAS, Robotic Assistance Devices, Sentinel Consulting, Westwind Unmanned, Knightscope, Inc. and more. “Forward thinking executives are already leveraging AI to secure their virtual assets, which makes autonomous security robots using similar technologies a natural next-step to protecting their physical space,” said Stacy Dean Stephen, executive vice president and chief client officer, Knightscope. “Having a presence at events like Unmanned Security Expo help to continue establishing our brand with these executives.”

With the support of a dynamic Educational Advisory Board led by industry luminaries, attendees spanning the physical security & public safety market , attendees will have access to five Exhibitor Product Training Sessions and over 50 complimentary education sessions comprised of award-winning SIA Education@ISC programming and a dedicated unmanned education track offering deep dives into the information, tools and skills professionals need to protect against today’s current and emerging security threats. “The commercial sector of unmanned systems continues to grow resulting in a greater need for security solutions to counter the latest threats that can be deployed in the air, on the ground, or within water,” explained Major General Marke F. Hoot Gibson (ret), Chief Executive Officer of the NUAIR Alliance on the importance of UAS education. “A proactive security approach coupled with identifying the steps necessary to mitigate security threats through the use of autonomous applications helps prevent dangerous situations in a safe, effective and efficient manner.”
