Military Space Situational Awareness - 28/11/2017

Agenda Released for 2018's Military Space Situational Awareness Conference

Senior Military confirmed to present at the 13th annual Military Space Situational Awareness Conference

Conference organisers SMi Group have released a brochure for the upcoming, 13th annual Military Space Situational Awareness (SSA) conference, returning to London, UK on the 25th and 26th April 2018.

With the defence industry becoming ever more data driven, ensuring that space systems can operate both safely and efficiently is crucial for government and military agencies. Military SSA 2018 will bring together key military, government, civilian and industry stakeholders, to discuss leading approaches and strategies being adopted to generate a holistic approach to SSA, at a time when the domain is growing increasingly congested with active satellites, space debris and adverse threats.

Building on the successes of last year’s meeting, Military Space Situational Awareness 2018 will also include an interactive half-day, pre-conference workshop on: ‘Developing a Roadmap for Proportionate Space Regulation’, hosted by Sqn Ldr (Ret’d) Ralph ‘Dinz’ Dinsley, Associate, Reflecting Space. Tuesday 24th April 2018, 12.30-16.30.
