Military Space Situational Awareness Conference


London, United Kingdom

We are proud to announce the 14th annual Military Space Situational Awareness Conference taking place on the 1st and 2nd April 2019 in London, UK.

As space has become more contested, congested and competitive the need to maintain effective situational awareness in the 4th domain is more critical than ever. With this in mind, we are set to host the Military SSA forum to bring together key stakeholders across the military, government and industry sectors to discuss approaches and strategies for providing a holistic approach to Space Situational Awareness (SSA).

Exploring space debris, space surveillance and tracking (SST), space weather, the impact of new mega-constellations and international partnerships in space - this remains a key calendar date for anyone involved in the satellite sector.

Featuring 120+ attendees, 7+ hours of networking and an extensive exhibition space - once again this year's conference will also provide unparalleled chance to meet and greet all the key players in this important domain.

Benefits of Attending

  • Discuss how mega-constellations in LEO will influence space traffic management and key priorities for space debris mitigation and removal
  • Learn about key topics within the SSA community including the impact of space weather, future space requirements, cataloguing of artificial satellites, sensor system integration and planetary defense
