Since the Space Operations Summit launched in 2019, NATO has approved its first space policy and declared space as an operational domain. A historic moment; recognising the evolving threats facing the Alliance's members and partners as they seek to integrate space within a joint all-domain concept of operations

As thinking on the defence space enterprise matures, this conference provides an opportunity to translate that thinking into capability. It represents a platform not only for advancing space as a warfighting domain in an of itself, but for supporting the development of space-based systems as vital joint enablers for future operations across air, land, sea and cyber.

With keynotes from NASA, the NATO Communications and Information Agency and the US Combined Space Operations Center, the conference will open with an interactive workshop focused on commercial launch services, recognising that delivering capability in and effects from space begins with access to space. The two conference days will examine topics including small satellites, space situational awareness, resiliency for space assets, command and control, data relay and connectivity.

Join us in April as we seek to integrate space in an era of multi-domain operations.
