We are proud to be hosting the 3rd annual Military Space USA conference, which will be taking place on the 7th and 8th of June 2022 with a dedicated Disruptive Technology Focus Day on the 6th of June.

The US DOD's space enterprise has undergone a seismic shift in the last couple of years: from the establishment of USSPACECOM and the US Space Force to the overhaul of space acquisition currently underway, the pace of change signals the DOD's intent to remain in the ascendancy in this critical domain.

Nonetheless, significant challenges remain. US space assets are still vulnerable to enemy interference both on earth and on orbit, and an overreliance on space-based capabilities necessitate a far greater investment in resilient systems to mitigate this vulnerability. Closer to home, prohibitively long and complicated procurement processes remain a significant block to rapid capability development.

With briefings, discussions, technology demonstrations, and a whole day dedicated to disruptive technology, Military Space USA will provide an unmatched opportunity for space professionals to examine these challenges. Focusing on a number of key mission areas relevant to all space warfighters, this conference remains the pre-eminent forum to learn how the US and its allies will forge the future of military space.
