The three Phases of Unmanned Systems Defense will focus on a different step of the defense budget process, following funding from the President's Budget request, through Congressional authorization, to final appropriations.

Each Phase will feature three consecutive days of webinars with Pentagon brass, program managers, acquisition experts, and industry players to shed light on how the DoD is procuring and deploying unmanned systems.

Each day will focus in on a specific operational domain—maritime, air, or ground—though much of the content will also have implications across domains.
