SMi are delighted to announce Dr Eva Bernhardsdotter, Head of Space Programs, FMV (Swedish Defence Material Administration), will be speaking on Day One of the Military Space Situational Awareness Conference. Her presentation entitled "Sweden’s Approach to Space Situational Awareness Programme" will explore the Swedish rationale for SSA in the face of the evolving space environment. She will also discuss the proposed SSA strategies and governance in Sweden, as well as current and planned efforts in support of the Swedish Armed Forces.

In line with this, Christer Andersson, Senior Scientist at the Swedish FOI will be presenting on Day Two of the conference to advise on “Some preconditions, obstacles and opportunities to consider when implementing an operational SSA for a small European nation”. Key points of his session include the current research into SSA in support of Swedish and Allied forces, enhancing SSA through advanced processing systems, and future technologies for space domain awareness and control.

Hosted over two days, the conference will focus on space situational awareness as the centre of securing current and future space operations. We will discuss emerging technologies and operational approaches to SSA and how emerging space nationals are striving to enhance national security in the Space Domain.
