Military Space Situational Awareness 2021 Virtual Conference

Overcoming Key Situational Awareness Challenges in a Contested, Congested and Competitive Space

- April 28-29, 2021- Online

We are proud to announce that the 16th annual Military Space Situational Awareness Conference will take place virtually on the 28th and 29th April 2021.

As the leading conference in Europe dedicated to space domain awareness, this year's forum will once again bring together key stakeholders across the military, government and industry sectors to discuss how we build a collaborative approach to space management and Space Situational Awareness (SSA) as well as how we balance operational necessity with responsible use of space.

Similarly, as new LEO mega-constellations come online at an increasing rate, avoiding a repeat of the 2009 Iridium crash remains at the forefront of all industry professionals’ minds as we attempt to ensure that necessary and responsible space exploration and development can continue for years to come.

Key focuses include space domain awareness, space surveillance and tracking (SST), the new US Space Force's approach to SSA, the impact of new mega-constellations, and international partnerships in space.

Featuring 200+ attendees, this year's conference will provide an unparalleled chance to meet with the key players in this important domain and remains a key calendar date for anyone involved in the satellite sector.
