The Board of Directors for the Pathfinder Chapter of the Association of Uncrewed Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) would like to invite you to the 2023 AUVSI Pathfinder Symposium,  Huntsville, AL. Last year’s symposium had over 50 vendors/exhibitors along with speakers from the military, federal, state, and local governments, and organizations.  Attendees responded with admiration for the conference format, location and opportunity to meet directly with partners and customers alike.

With that said, you should not miss this event! The 2023 conference will be held at the Von Braun Civic Center in Huntsville, AL from 28-31 August 2023, and we are expecting over 80 exhibitors and 800 attendees. Our theme this year is “Clearing the Way for Autonomy”. The symposium will provide an opportunity for you to meet and interact with some of the leading uncrewed systems and engineering companies in the United States. We are also planning vendor demonstrations, networking socials and the best high school robotics students in the state of Alabama!

On behalf of the AUVSI Pathfinder Chapter, I cordially invite you and your organization to become an attendee, sponsor or an exhibitor for our symposium. All of our collected funds go back to the community supporting STEM!!
