UASympEx 2015: Europe's 1st Symposium for Integration and Security of drones in Hamburg

Hamburg - UASympEx will take place on September 18th and 19th 2015 in Hamburg, on the initiative of Christian L. Caballero Kroschel and Jan Hesselbarth from Caballero & Hesselbarth Consulting - together with the Northern Business School (NBS) and supported by the city of Hamburg.

The market of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and its economical impact is developing rapidly. In comparison to international development Germany stays behind its possibilities. There is a need of standardization, integration and security of implementation in order to support and secure market growth.


UASympEx shall establish an informative platform, as a combination of scientific conference and networkevent. Well known experts such as Martin Sperber from TÜV Rheinland Industrie Services GmbH, Dieter Bode, chairman of the Association for Security in Business of Northern Germany (VSWN e.V.) or Olaf Rohnberg, Head of German-Franco Air-Ground Operations School at Bundeswehr, will provide insights into recent development and efforts to standardize, integrate and secure UAS. The event will point out the opportunities and risks of standardization, protection against misuse of drones and possible application in the agriculture or wind energy sectors. Together with Kristofer Proll from DIN Deutsches Institut für Normung e.V. the participants will work on a standardization roadmap - in order to directly influence further growth in Germany and Europe.

Another important part of UASympEx is the start-up session at the end of day 2. Young start-ups will have the chance to pitch their ideas in front of a wide audience of experts, talk to business angels and acquire possible investors.

„UASympEX addresses manufacturers of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and service providers offering UAS-based applications as well as public authorities, companies and start-ups, who seek for information and personal exchange about integration mechanisms and security of this new technology", say the initiators, who both have 13 years of experience in the integration and defense of UAS. After 2015 the initiators plan to continue UASympex as an annual industry event.
