Why You Should Attend This Summit:
The 7th Annual Space Resiliency Summit is an educational summit that will convene senior intelligence officials, government leaders, academia, and solution providers to discuss the developing technology, infrastructure, and policies surrounding the role of space in the United States’ national security enterprise.
As barriers to entry continue to fall, the space domain is becoming an increasingly contested operating environment. US intelligence, defense, and commercial organizations actively leverage space capabilities for communications, scientific pursuits, intelligence, reconnaissance, and missile detection efforts. Compromising these assets will potentially have tremendous consequences on national security as well as the wellbeing of the nation.
Currently, adversaries such as Russia and China are developing measures to deny our ability to operate in Space though cyber and kinetic means. Even though Russia was first to develop space capabilities China has greatly increased its investment over the past few years and is now the main threat to US systems. They continue to develop anti-satellite weapons that pose a threat to not only US assets but pose a risk to creating vast amounts of space debris that could damage any number of commercial satellites.
The Space Resiliency Summit will examine the policies and strategies required to enhance the U.S’ supremacy of the space domain. Speakers will address the need for a robust proliferated space architecture, increased cybersecurity, accurate missile detection capabilities, and sophisticated payloads. Discussions will also center on the progress of the realignment of US Space Force, US Space Command, and the US Space Enterprise.
