Past event: Future Military Space USA Conference

Maintaining Dominance in a Contested, Congested and Competitive Space

We are proud to be hosting the 4th annual Military Space USA conference, which will be taking place on the 5th and 6th of June 2023.

With briefings, discussions, technology demonstrations and panels, Future Military Space USA will provide an unmatched opportunity for space professionals to examine the US space enterprise. 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.

What's different this year?

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.

That's is what makes the 4th annual Military Space USA Conference 2023 a must-attend event.

Now more than ever, US space assets are 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. It's these significant challenges that will be discussed by the military space community at this conference and why you cannot afford to miss out.
