Military Space Situational Awareness
As the leading conference in Europe dedicated to space domain awareness, this year’s forum will once again bring together key stakeholders across military, government, and industry to discuss the future of the sector. With a renewed focus on partnership and collaboration and over 200 attendees, this event remains a “must-attend” for any professional working in space situational awareness. Many of the recent developments in SSA are centred around the emergence of new LEO constellations and how military users must adapt their SSA approaches to account for this. Similarly, increasing interest in cislunar space present unique challenges for the industry, as does renewed great power competition.
