Military Space USA 2021 Conference

Supporting the Warfighter through transformation and innovation Within the US Approach to Space

, Los Angeles , CA , United States

We are proud to once again be hosting the 2nd annual Military Space US Conference, which will be taking place this year from the 8th - 9th June 2021 with a new dedicated disruptive technology focus day taking place on the 7th June 2021.

Featuring high level briefings from senior leadership within industry, government and allied partners, Military Space US will delve into how organisational efforts like SMC 2.0 are helping putting capabilities into the hands of the warfighter at EPIC SPEED.

As space has become a contested domain and peer adversaries advance their own capabilities, the need to 'go fast' has become accepted dogma within the space community. Driving these efforts across all mission areas - including SATCOM, PNT, Earth Observation, SSA and Launch - has become a critical for the DoD.

Featuring 3 dedicated days of content, this conference remains the pre-eminent forum to learn how the US and allies are driving a disruptive approach to space.
