Announcement: this event has now become online only and will be held on the Organisers Virtual Conference Platform.

With the Small Satellites market expected to grow into a $7.53 bn (GBP5.94 bn) industry by 2022, the ability to deliver connectivity here on the ground through new LEO constellations mantel is already being seriously developed by leading industry and government stakeholders worldwide.

As adoption of small, nano and cube satellites constellations has been driven by the commercial market - in particular for COMSATCOM - there is now growing consensus that architectures of military systems can and must include architecture that will support LEO solution provision.

With this in mind, we are delighted to announce the inaugural Small Satellites Virtual Conference on 26th - 27th April 2021 which will explore economies of scale, small satellite production and design, regulatory considerations in the increasingly congested domain and key programme updates from across leading space agencies, militaries and commercial solution providers.

This conference will be held in British Summer Time (GMT+1)
