Past event: Military Space USA 2019 Conference

Providing a Holistic View of the US Space Enterprise

The organisers of Global MilSatCom are proud to announce the Military Space USA Conference will take place in Los Angeles, June 11th and 12th 2019 - a key calendar meeting for Military Satellite professionals that are driving innovation across the space enterprise.

Featuring high level briefings from senior leadership across industry, government and allied partner states, Military Space USA will explore how organisational efforts such as SMC 2.0 are facilitating the space supremacy that is demanded by the warfighter.

Additionally, the conference will provide a forum for senior military and industry authorities to collaborate in the development, acquisition, deployment and sustainability of space-enabled communications that support allied objectives.

Exploring both provision of SATCOM and PNT, EO, COMSATCOM, Remote Sensing and Small Satellite Expansion - along with an assessment of the SSA and SST implications of these systems - Military Space USA will provide a holistic overview of developments in the 4th domain.
