About Our 2016 Resiliency Summit:

“Most U.S. military space systems were not designed with threats in mind, and were built for long-term functionality and efficiency, with systems operating for decades in some cases. Without the need to factor in threats, longevity and cost were the critical factors to design and these factors were applied in a mission stovepipe. This is no longer an adequate methodology to equip space forces.” – Gen John Hyten, Commander of Air Force Space Command, April 2016

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.
