SMi Group are proud to be hosting the 2nd annual Military Space USA conference, which will be taking place on the 8th and 9th of June 2021 with a new dedicated Disruptive Technology Focus Day on the 7th of June.
For many years, the US has dominated the space domain and its overwhelming superiority across the other warfighting domains has ensured that this domination was rarely challenged. Nowadays, however, the space domain is becoming increasingly competitive: near-peer adversaries are flexing their muscles, irregular threats are rife in the cyber domain, and there are growing calls for modernization within the US space enterprise to arrest this shift in momentum. This conference will address these issues head-on. With briefings, discussions, technology demonstrations, and a whole day dedicated to disruptive technology, the US military space enterprise will gather to respond to the urgent challenge from General James Dickinson, Commander USSPACECOM, to his Warfighters, their enablers and their supporters: we must “ensure that there is NEVER A DAY WITHOUT SPACE”.
As space has become a contested domain and as near peer adversaries advance their own capabilities, the need to ‘go fast’ has become accepted dogma within the space community. Driving these efforts across all mission areas – including SATCOM, PNT, Earth Observation, SSA and Launch - has become a critical mission for the DoD.
Featuring 3 dedicated days of content, this conference remains the pre-eminent forum to learn how the US and allies are driving a disruptive approach to space.
