Why You Should Attend This Summit:

DSI’s 8th Annual Space Resiliency Summit is an educational summit which will convene senior military leaders, 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.

The United States relies heavily on spaced-based assets for purposes ranging from communications, reconnaissance, and missile detection to space exploration. Almost every industry and person in the United States depends on the resiliency of satellites and other capabilities which allow us to share data and communicate with people around the world. Disrupting aspects of our commercial and government owned space infrastructure would have devastating effects not only on national security, but also the economy.

As other countries, particularly China and Russia, expand their own Space aspirations the US needs to continue to ensure that can meet its own goals in this realm. The crowding of the playing field will require American Space players to develop new ways to create resilient space systems capable of withstanding potential cyber and kinetic attacks as well as the overcome the growing traffic of the domain.

DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposium’s content and focus areas. We assemble the most respected minds across the Space community, as well as key policymakers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and agencies to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
