XPO 2018 快报

      2018年4月30日-5月3日, XPONENTIAL 2018 (美国国际无人系统展)即将在美国科罗拉多州的丹佛市科罗拉多会议中心举办。那么为什么本届展会选择在科罗拉多州,选在丹佛举办?小编来告诉你。

关于科罗拉多


        多年来,科罗拉多州一直致力于推动本地无人系统相关产业的发展。依托于丹佛大学、科罗拉多大学博尔德分校和科罗拉多空军学院等优秀院校,加上该州位于美国中部的地理优势,很多无人系统行业投资者选择把公司和组织落户于此。例如AUVSI’s Rocky Mountain Chapter , UAS Colorado。此届 XPO 2018 展会,有将近40家参展企业来自科罗拉多州。包括Aerobotic Geophysical Systems LLC 和 Ximea Corp这样的著名企业。


When Canada’s Aeryon Labs decided to setup a separate defense-focused company so it could work with the U.S. militaryon unmanned systems programs, it quickly settled on Colorado — and specificallyDenver — as home for the new Aeryon Defense, which just launched on Feb. 1.

Tom Jackson,a retired U.S. Marine Corps officer and AH-1W Super Cobra pilot who is thecompany’s vicepresident and general manager, was already in the area, as were other employeeswho formed the nucleus of the new venture.

Beyond that,however, the state and city offered some unique attributes. Colorado is verycentrally located, so it’s easier for the company to support multiple time zonesand for company officials to travel to defense facilities around the country.

And while manyof the state’s big defense contractors set up shop in the suburbs of Denver,Aeryon Defense decided to dive right into the heart of it, opening its officejust a few blocks from the convention center and right off the 16th StreetMall.

“We startedlooking downtown, and the energy of the city is something that matched theenergy of our company,” says Jackson.


       许多无人系统创业公司选择科罗拉多州特别是丹佛落户,是因为科罗拉多州位于美国中部,便于到全国各地开展业务。


It doesn’t hurt that Aeryon is alsoable to tap into the academic environment, which includes the University ofColorado at Boulder and its powerhouse engineering program, and the Air ForceAcademy in nearby Colorado Springs.

“Denver’s a fast-growing city, we’re a fast-growing company,and we’re able toattract that talent that fits our culture,” Jackson says.

It’s the same sort of vibe that drewAUVSI to host its annual conference and exhibition in Denver in 2010, and whichis bringing it back with Xponential this year, April 30-May 3, at the ColoradoConvention Center.

Pushingthe needle

Colorado hasbeen attempting to “push the needle” on unmanned systems and related technologyfor years now, says Ben Miller, director of the Colorado Center of Excellencefor Advanced Technology Aerial Firefighting, who also previously worked for theMesa County Sheriff’s Office to create their drone program.

“It’s a very open, ‘is thatpossible’ typeculture,” Miller says. “It’s a very progressive culture, the entire state.”

There’s a lot of young growth inthe industry, driven by the local universities. The University of Colorado,Boulder is home to the Research and Engineering Center for Unmanned Vehicles,or RECUV, a partnership of academia, government and industry dedicated todeveloping unmanned systems technology.

TheUniversity of Denver established the Unmanned Systems Research Institute, knownas DU2SRI, back in 2012, which is primarily aimed at developing “the nextgeneration of UAS that will be used for a wide spectrum of civil/public domainapplications,” according to its website.


      科罗拉多州政府一直以来就致力于推动无人系统产业发展,特别是扶持本地的科研院校设立相关机构,开展研究。


"Theworkfoce is highly technical," says Mark Gordon, president and CEO ofBoulder-based Stratom, which builds robotic ground vehicles and providesrelated technology and services. "The unemployment rate is extremelylow."

The statehad enough going on in the field that it put in a credible bid to get an FAAUAS Test Site, and although that didn’t work out, work on unmanned systems inthe state has only increased.

AUVSI’s Rocky Mountain Chapter isbased in the state, as is UAS Colorado, which grew out of the bid for the FAAUAS Test Site. Both are nonprofit advocacy organizations committed to promotingthe industry in the state.

        AUVSI也在该州设立了分会。FAA则将试验基地建立在此。


The statealso established the Colorado Center of Excellence for Advanced TechnologyAerial Firefighting, which is part of the Colorado Department of Public Safety.The center conducts research on drones related to firefighting and handles UASfor the whole department.

“From astate government perspective, we are really the lead,” said Miller, who directsthe center.

Gordon saysColorado is attracting unmanned systems and robotics companies because thestate is helping promote them to grow the economy.

“There are alot of different things happening here, with aerial companies, unmanned groundvehicle providers and pure robotics companies,” he says, “VC [venture capital]and small businesses, primarily.”

The statehas identified high tech and defense as big potential drivers of its economy,he says, and it's important enough to the state that Colorado Gov. JohnHickenlooper is addressing Xponential on the final day, when the theme is"unmanned systems for good."

Numerousunmanned systems-related companies call Colorado home, and nearly four dozen ofthem will be exhibiting at Xponential, ranging from Aerobotic GeophysicalSystems LLC to Ximea Corp. Many will be part of the Colorado Pavilion, one ofeight state pavilions that will be on the show floor.

“There’s an incredible energy,” saysAeryon’s Jackson,and Miller agrees.

“It’s a culture that’s open to trying new things.”


      科罗拉多州逐渐形成了无人系统产业急剧增长的独特氛围。从国家到州政府,从知名公司到新创企业都在这里找到了归属感。此届XPONENTIAL 2018 展会,有将近40家参展企业来自科罗拉多州。包括Aerobotic Geophysical Systems LLC 和 Ximea Corp这样的著名企业。
