Event Details


"The Changing Face of
Unmanned Systems"

Guest Presenter:

Larry Osborn
Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer,  
DreamHammer, Inc.

Larry's presentation will focus on the changes occurring in the unmanned systems market and how DreamHammer is positioned to address that market.  (Note: by "unmanned systems" is meant including, but not limited to, aerial unmanned vehicles.)

Trends in the market segment include explosive growth, commercialization, commoditization, increased autonomy of the platforms, miniaturization and proliferation, and regulatory pressure to manage their safe operation and address privacy concerns.

DreamHammer, as a commercial software provider, is uniquely positioned to address this emerging and evolving market segment with disruptive technology and an innovative business model.

About DreamHammer

DreamHammer is a Santa Monica-based software company that provides intelligent software control products for commercial, defense and intelligence customers.

Its first product, Ballista, is a OS for drones and allows one person to simultaneously control multiple drones of any type. It features a plug and play architecture that can be integrated into any unmanned system. Ballista has been licensed to government agencies including the U.S. Navy's Program Executive Office Unmanned Aviation and Strike Weapons.

Ballista is a warfighting system that allows operators to project singular and focused force with every asset in the battlespace.  Ballista is built on an open, versatile and all encompassing platform allowing for the integration of disparate and stove-piped military domains. Consequently autonomous and simultaneous control of multiple unmanned vehicles across all domains (air, sea and land) in a single software environment becomes possible.
