Military Space USA 2021 Virtual Conference

  • Supporting the Warfighter through transformation and innovation Within the US Approach to Space
  • June 7-9, 2021- Online

We are proud to once again be hosting the 2nd annual Military Space US Conference, which will be taking place this year from the 8th - 9th June 2021 with a new dedicated disruptive technology focus day taking place on the 7th June 2021.

More information

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 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 for the DoD.
