Welcome to the AUVSI Pathfinder website. Having just celebrated the Pathfinder Chapters’ 30th Anniversary with one of our most successful Symposium in years, our chapter stands stronger than ever. With support primarily from the unmanned industry, we seek to serve them with relevant speakers and topics through monthly meetings or more in-depth Technical Interchange Meetings. We also hold an annual two-day AUVSI Pathfinder Symposium that includes our senior military acquisition leaders, senior industry leaders, local, state, and national political figures, state and local first responders, and national and international technical experts.
We are guided by our chapter objectives to: Advocate for industry and users of unmanned systems, Communicate to the general public about the safety and value of unmanned systems, Support students and educators interested in unmanned systems with grants, and Recognition of excellence in the unmanned systems field.
Our chapter was been built on a legacy of strong leadership from our previous board and our enduring members. My personal journey encompasses 38 years in the Aerospace Industry including experience in all aspects of the Unmanned Industry including building innovative small businesses that design, manufacture, and operate unmanned vehicles to helping large aerospace companies introduce their unmanned products into the marketplace. My journey has allowed me to establish long-term friendships and mentoring relationships with key unmanned industry players.
If you are looking for a professional organization dedicated to the unmanned systems field to be kept informed, meet key buyers and sellers, and establish enduring relationships with top unmanned professionals, our chapter warmly welcomes to the family.
