The 2009 GNC Challenges for Miniature Autonomous Systems Workshop will be held at the Emerald Coast Conference Center in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.

Public sessions are scheduled on Monday morning, Tuesday and Wednesday. Monday afternoon sessions are For Official Use Only and require special visit requests (see website).

The workshop will cover advances in guidance, navigation and control for UAVs less than 20 pounds (9 K) total systems weight- the wave of the future.

The workshop targets the DoD technical and user community, academia, and industry.
It is sponsored by the Air Force Research Lab Munitions Directorate and facilitated by the Institute of Navigation.

Miniature autonomous systems are cheaper to develop and build than current systems; their smaller size
will allow them to be carried in large numbers, they will be compatible
with small UAVs for air-launched systems, and they will ease access to
difficult targets such as hardened command and control facilities.
