Due to high demand, we are proud to announce the inaugural Military Space Disruptive Technology Conference and Exhibition, taking place on 25th - 26th April 2022 in London, UK. After launching as a pre-conference Focus Day at the industry-leading Global MilSatCom conference and exhibition, Military Space Disruptive Technology will now run as a standalone event alongside Military Space Situational Awareness in our Space Week (25th - 28th April 2021).

Disruptive technology and innovative thinking have recently become buzz-phrases in the military space field: worldwide militaries are creating agile innovation units with extraordinary levels of autonomy; industry partners are setting up programmes with the sole aim of providing paradigm-shifting technology; and initiatives like the UK/US Space Pitch Days are offering unprecedented access and funding to non-traditional solution providers. With the traditional dominance of the US and its partners being increasingly threatened in the space domain, it is now being recognised that only fast and frequent innovation in all aspects of the military space enterprise will ensure that there is “never a day without space”.

The inaugural Military Space Disruptive Technology Conference and Exhibition is designed to address this imperative head-on. By gathering innovation champions, strategic visionaries, and technology disruptors from across the military space enterprise, the conference will provide an ideal setting for critical discussions and thought leadership that will shape the future. Touching on critical topics like AI, agile launch, small satellite technology and robotics, there is no better place to join the conversation on space innovation and pave the way towards the next generation of military space technology.
