We are proud to announce the 6th annual MilSatCom USA conference, returning on 22nd-23rd June 2022.

Featuring in-depth presentations from all branches of the military, numerous critical government agencies and leading industry SATCOM providers, the conference will delve into the most important topics and discussions around MILSATCOM. This year's forum will analyse several pressing topics including emerging US space policy, SATCOM resiliency and redundancy, USSF and US Army SATCOM acquisition plans, and expeditionary SATCOM for the Warfighter.

As well as bringing together the US MILSATCOM community, the conference will bring in some of the most dynamic and innovative international militaries to provide their unique perspectives; no other event in the USA offers the same number of opportunities to meet, discuss and network with opposite numbers from allied nations.
