SMi Group Reports: Captain Wilco van den Bogaard of the Royal Netherlands Air Force will be speaking at Military Space Situational Awareness 2021, taking place virtually on the 28th – 29th April.

London, United Kingdom, February 26, 2021 --( Convening virtually on the 28th – 29th April 2021, SMi Group is proud to announce that Captain Wilco van den Bogaard, OT Space, Royal Netherlands Air Force will be speaking at Military Space Situational Awareness 2021 to provide updates on RNLAF space activities, including information on current SSA projects, BRIK-II and ambition of the RNLAF Space Branch.

The Royal Netherlands Air Force is expected to launch their very first satellite this year, a 6U CubeSat called BRIK-II. This nanosatellite will provide the RNLAF with intelligence relating to navigation, communication and Earth Observation, and represents a significant step forward for the Dutch MoD's efforts to develop their first space capabilities.

Designed and integrated by Dutch space engineering company, Innovative Solutions in Space, BRIK-II will fly as a rideshare payload on an upcoming LauncherOne mission. As part of the Netherlands' broader plan to pursue responsive space capability, they will pursue a "late-load" integration, by integrating the payload with the rocket shortly prior to launch.

This exercise will prove critical in pioneering the payload processing capabilities required to execute responsive launch, the results of which will be analyzed and documented to be shared with allied partners.

Captain Wilco van den Bogaard, OT Space, Royal Netherlands Air Force will be speaking on the new BRIK-II satellite at Military Space Situational Awareness 2021, along with updates on current SSA projects and the ambition of the RNLAF Space Branch. His presentation will be as follows:

"Updates on RNLAF Space Activities"

Current SSA projects: radar & optical detection
