SAE Media Group is proud to host the 7th annual Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems conference, returning to London on the 8-10 April 2024.

The seventh annual Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems Conference builds on the success of an extremely popular six previous additions, to return bigger than ever in 2024. With the world less stable and the threat of conflict ever greater; the successful implementation and integration of risk reducing, yet tempo and mass generating robotics and autonomous systems is more crucial than ever.

With a dedicated focus day and 4 separate afternoon streams, covering all aspects of RAS, the MRAS conference is, as ever, the best place to gain essential knowledge and insight from MRAS programs from across the globe, and where the capabilities, challenges and opportunities of these programs lie. Unlike other events, we strive to deliver real insight and learning experiences through the expertly selected participants who run our discussions ensuring the latest developments from all parts of the community (industry and military) are covered, in detail.

With a new focus on the implementation, integration, and interoperability, alongside the key areas of situational
awareness, lethality, manoeuvrability, survivability, and sustainability, 
the Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems
2024 conference is best place to return your defence force or company fully equipped with the most up to date information from
militaries and industries across the globe. 

  • Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems is the leading event dedicated to military land robotics developments and priorities
  • Listen to keynote briefings from senior UK and NATO and allied land robotics programme managers
  • Discover the latest topics for the advancement of land robotics capabilities, including implementation, integration, and interoperability, situational awareness, lethality, manoeuvrability, survivability, and sustainability.
  • An emphasis on Unmanned Combat Vehicles, Enhancing Autonomous Capabilities and Battlefield Manned/Unmanned Teaming

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.


There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.


Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.


Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
