Skyworx Innovation Xchange to Host Second Annual Innovation Xchange: A UAS/Cyber Security Forum
Skyworx Innovation Xchange, the Augusta Regional Airport’s (AGS) aerospace business incubator, is hosting the second annual innovation forum focused on unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and cyber security issues relating to UAS. The event is being held at SRP Park in North Augusta today, February 18, 2021.
The Innovation Xchange was developed as a way to disseminate information and encourage collaboration between disparate groups working on similar programs in the UAS industry. Speakers include representatives from academia, military, government and private industry. This year the program will include live demonstrations of American made UAS vehicles in addition to the educational presentations.
“With the tremendous growth in the UAS industry and the relocation of Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) to the Augusta region, we are excited to host this collaborative event,” stated Herbert Judon, Jr., Executive Director, Augusta Regional Airport.
Skyworx is operated by and through, AGS staff and the Augusta Aviation Commission (AAC). The mission of the Skyworx Innovation Xchange is to encourage interest and innovation in the aerospace industry by providing an entrepreneurial environment, which encourages new ventures and minimizes risk of failure during the critical start-up phase of new businesses.
