Space Situational Awareness remains a key priority for armed forces capable of operating above the Earth. Space is now extremely contested, congested and competitive as more and more countries and organisation gain access to space technology. However, high amounts of orbiting traffic is not the only threat; space weather, debris and ground based electronic and cyber threats could also have a massive impact on our operations by disrupting satellite activity and therefore military ability on the ground. These threats need to be fully understood before we can overcome them.

Therefore we are proud to announce that we will be hosting our 12th annual Military Space Situational Awareness conference which will return to London in early April to provide the best forum to discuss the key priorities that will enable nations to maintain a strong presence in Earth's Orbit.

Benefits of Attending

  • Building on the success of last year we will return to focus on SSA; learn from the leading nations in this field how they continue to enhance the security of space infrastructure through Domain Awareness technologies
  • Discuss key topics that affect space situational awareness; from space-borne and ground-based sensors to effective information management systems
  • Gain a unique insight in to the challenges we face beyond our atmosphere and how defence forces and industry are striving overcome them.
  • Information sharing and international collaboration continues to be a key challenge; engage with potential industrial and military partners to gain a better awareness of space activity
