About Our 2016 Resiliency Summit:

Today, intelligence and DoD assets are more reliant on space capabilities than ever before. They are at the heart of all aspects in current military infrastructures. The growing space warfare capabilities of our adversaries enhance the threat of major combat operations with an adversary capable of jamming satellite communications, disrupting, degrading, or even destroying US space assets.

The 2016 Space Resiliency Summit brings together ISR, C2, SATCOM and IC communities along with, key leaders in industry with the sole objective of advancing and integrating innovative approaches for space control.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits’ content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in communications from U.S. military commands, leading research centers, government agencies, and industry technology providers. Our non partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
