Warsaw Drone Summit

July 25-26, 2022

The event Warsaw Drone Summit has now passed.

Together with their partner company Looking Glass Global Services, Chenope hosted the first ever Warsaw Drone Summit in Warsaw.

The summit gathered representatives of the military, government, investors, as well as representatives of companies involved in the drone industry from Poland, Ukraine, the USA and other countries. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has shown that the role of drones in today’s battlefield has grown rapidly and will continue to increase in the foreseeable future. According to the data of the Ukrainian Ministry of Digital Transformation, the value of the global military drone market was valued at USD 11.7 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 17.2 billion by 2028. That is why Bernard Hudson, former CIA head for combating terrorism and CEO of Looking Glass, initiated the Warsaw Drone Summit as a communication platform to exchange views of interested parties parties from the region and to develop a plan to accelerate innovation in this sector. The Drone Valley located in Poland would become a regional center for drone technology and innovation.

However, the concept of the Drone Valley is by no means limited to drones. Numerous types of advanced technologies and software are becoming increasingly important for drones and even across the spectrum. Advanced military equipment, including image recognition, data integration from various sensors and systems (sensor fusion) and advanced information processing software.

We are planning for a return of the event, hopefully in Ukraine!

LOCATION
WARSAW, POLAND

Warsaw is the ideal front line location for a conference on the future of drones and the role of drones in the new security reality in Europe. The capital city of Poland offers something for everyone, from classical music, to a rich history and natural beaches along the Vistula.

VENUE
KINOTEKA

The Warsaw Drone Summit will take place at the Kinoteka, a theater located inside the historic Palace of Culture and Science. Constructed after WWII, when most of Warsaw still lay in ruins, the Palace was “gifted” to the Poles by Stalin. It thus symbolized the strategic importance that Russia placed upon Poland.
