‘Unmanned Security Expo’ to Take Flight at ISC West

The new exhibits and educational event dedicated to aerial drones and ground robotics will be held within ISC West in 2017.

NORWALK, Conn. – ISC West has introduced plans for the all-new Unmanned Security Expo to be held at ISC West, April 5-7, 2017, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas. The inaugural event is sponsored by the Security Industry Association (SIA), and will focus on aerial drones and ground robotics for security applications.

The addition of the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and ground robotics product categories to ISC West stems directly from recent changes in FAA guidelines (FAA Part 107), which govern the commercial use of UAVs/drones, the organization stated in a press release. The changes, which went into effect in late August, remove many of the previous barriers that limited UAV/drone use in security applications. In response to these changes, PwC has valued the emerging global market for drones in the security industry at more than $10 billion.

“We’re thrilled to offer this unique content to the attendees of ISC West,” says ISC Senior Vice President and General Manager Ed Several. “ISC’s goal is always to provide the industry with the latest products and technologies in security, and Unmanned Security Expo does just that. It’s the first robotics event to focus specifically on security applications.”

“The broader trend of UAVs and robotics has great potential to change the security industry,” SIA CEO Don Erickson. “SIA seeks to inform our members and influence government policy related to this technology trend so that these new solutions can be used smartly to drive business growth.”

The Unmanned Security Expo @ ISC West will include approximately 40 vendors ranging from UAVs/drones, drone detection, ground robotics and more. Complementing the exhibits will be a fully functional flight cage, which will host daily technology demos on the show floor. Seminars will also be provided through the SIA Education@ISC conference program, and shorter overview sessions will also be provided for free on the exhibit floor.
