Every day, members of U.S. Congress work on legislation that can either boost or hinder the advancement and deployment of unmanned and autonomous systems. To reinforce how these technologies are making positive impacts on local communities and economies across the country, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUSVI) brought together more than 350 industry and congressional members for Hill Day 2019, an event held in Washington DC each year. This year, Reps Daniel Lipinski and Sam Graves spoke to attendees about their support of the unmanned systems industry during the breakfast and luncheon programs.
Attending AUSVI Hill Day 2019 on behalf of Sea Machines was Board Member and strategic adviser Todd Busch, who actively participated in the day’s meetings and networked with AUSVI members and congressional leadership, while sharing the progress of Sea Machines’ autonomous-command and advanced perception marine systems. With the American maritime industry responsible for $150 Billion in economic output, congressional leaders were interested in learning about Sea Machines’ emerging BlueTech which is already making the sector more productive, predictable and safer.
