Speaker Line-Up Announced for Military Space USA 2021

SMi Group’s Military Space USA conference will take place as a virtual conference over June 7th – 9th, 2021 to explore key topics within the US DoD’s approach to space.

Los Angeles, CA, February 11, 2021 --(PR.com)-- SMi Group are proud to announce that the 2nd annual Military Space USA conference will take place online as a virtual conference on June 8th – 9th, 2021, with a brand-new Disruptive Technology Focus Day on June 7th.

The US has dominated the space domain for many years, and its overwhelming superiority across the other warfighting domains has ensured that this domination was rarely challenged.

Nowadays, however, space is becoming increasingly competitive: near-peer adversaries are flexing their muscles, irregular threats are rife in the cyber domain, and there are growing calls for modernization within the US space enterprise to arrest this shift in momentum.

With this in mind, the Military Space USA 2021 conference will address these issues head-on. With briefings, discussions, technology demonstrations, and a whole day dedicated to disruptive technology, the US military space enterprise will gather to respond to the urgent challenge from General James Dickinson, Commander USSPACECOM, to his Warfighters, their enablers and their supporters: we must “ensure that there is Never A Day Without Space."
