Sydney, 11th May 2022

Organised in association with AMDA Foundation Ltd, the Australian Association for Uncrewed Systems conference at Indo Pacific 2022 will attract Defence, Industry & Academia from around the world to present, promote and discuss unmanned technologies.

The one day conference will take place on Wednesday May 11, and will form part of the Indo Pacific 2022 conference at the International Convention Centre, Sydney from May 10-12, 2022. The Indo Pacific expo will focus on autonomy and unmanned technologies relevant to future defence programs, particularly maritime applications.

AAUS events focus on broadening professional relationships amongst members and key industry end users.  Our events are strongly supported by key defence personnel and there will be opportunities to meet with them during the conference and at the conference dinner which will take place on the evening of the conference.

Event Format

AAUS’s Autonomy in the Maritime Domain is a live, in person event held at the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) as part of the Indo Pacific International Maritime Exposition.

The conference will include both formal presentations and audience interactive panel sessions.

There will be plenty of time to network throughout the event during fully catered morning, afternoon and lunch breaks.


The Autonomy in the Maritime Domain conference provides a great opportunity for organisations to engage closely with the Australian Defence Force and Industry discussing emerging uncrewed systems programs and offers organisations a significant branding opportunity.

A sponsorship prospectus will be released shortly, outlining the sponsorship opportunities available.
