On Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 March 2019, the U.T.SEC Summit for Drones, Unmanned Technologies & Security will once again bring together users, suppliers and experts on all aspects of drones and security at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg. The two days of the fair will focus on exploring the technical, legal and practical aspects associated with the use of and defence against drones and other unmanned vehicles. The accompanying presentations, forums and panel discussions, as well as flight demonstrations, offer a fitting complement to the trade fair concept.
“For this third round of U.T.SEC, we aim to consolidate the concept of networking,” says Thomas Preutenborbeck, Executive Director Exhibitions at NürnbergMesse. “Our conversations with exhibitors, visitors and associations at the last two events showed us that there is a very significant need for information and knowledge-sharing among professionals in this still relatively new segment. Moreover, a closer association with the parallel trade fair Enforce Tac, and the resulting focus on the target group of security agencies, seemed very important for all participants.”
U.T.SEC 2019 is now set to meet these requirements. One of the main highlights will be the extensive programme of presentations, in which experts from various segments will provide inspiration for the ongoing development of the industry and discuss the latest issues with trade visitors. The next generation of experts from universities and start-ups can discuss new ideas with the contacts they make, while exhibiting companies will showcase their latest developments. There will be even more synergies than before due to the relocation of Enforce Tac, the exhibition for special police units, to the adjacent hall.

Specialised networking platform for unmanned technologies
U.T.SEC focuses on the use of unmanned systems by security agencies like the police and other official bodies and organisations responsible for security and safety such as firefighting services, disaster control and other emergency services. The growing possibilities for the use of drones have also thrown up new questions relating to no-fly zones or flight restricted zones, for example around airports, football stadiums or industrial and governmental facilities and establishments. This is why U.T.SEC is targeting manufacturers of unmanned flying objects and other unmanned vehicles, as well as suppliers of systems for surveillance, communication, drone defence, data transfer or position sensing, experts for perimeter and airspace protection and IT and crisis management, security managers from official agencies and executives in charge of procurement and public sector budgets.
Partners from research, business and government
U.T.SEC is supported by a network from the research, business and political arenas. The official partners of U.T.SEC 2019 are UAV DACH (German-speaking association for unmanned aviation) and VfS (association for security technology).
UAV DACH has been in existence for 18 years and is the largest and most experienced German-language professional association for unmanned aviation in Europe. It represents the interests of more than 175 members from the research, manufacturing and application segments located in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands. UAV DACH fosters the acceptance, safety, reliability, quality and promotion of unmanned aviation. Through the expertise of its members, UAV DACH also supports the development of relevant regulations and laws at national and international level.
The VfS deals with security concerns and logistical problems in areas with more stringent security requirements. These include correctional facilities, utilities, airports, hospitals, forensic laboratories, industrial companies, data centres, logistics centres, public establishments, shopping centres and banks etc. The association’s objective is to optimise technical and organisational measures to improve security in the highly vulnerable areas associated with various user groups.
In addition, the Bavarian Ministry for Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology, represented by Minister Franz Josef Pschierer, has once again agreed to be patron of U.T.SEC in 2019.
