Military Space

SMi’s 10th annual Military Space conference will bring together leading experts in the field of space technology. Topics to be addressed will range from satellite communication, surveillance, missile defence as well as national updates. Hear up-to-date presentations from an international panel of speakers and learn how the militarisation of space is evolving; including military cooperation, utilisation of space data, missile defence and European approaches to space operations and the operational challenges which lay ahead.

The role of technology is becoming increasingly prevalent in modern warfare and the use of space in operations has grown and continues to do so. The utilisation of satellites has been one of the main areas of development; navigation and mapping has been made possible via GPS data; satellites are also being used to transfer long- range communications and are an increasingly a key component of mobile deployable systems.

Hear keynote addresses from:

  • Group Captain Martin Johnson, Director, National Air Defence and Space Operations, Royal Air Force
  • Professor Richard Crowther, Chief Engineer, UK Space Agency
  • Kenneth Hodgkins, Director of Space and Advanced Technology, US Department of State
  • Peter Woodmansee, HQ U.S European Command Missile Defense Program Manager, EUCOM

The 2015 speaker line-up includes:

  • Colonel Jerome Bernier, Chief of Staff at Joint Space Command, French Ministry of Defence
  • Commodore Christian Anuge, Director ICT, Training and Operations, Nigerian Navy Headquarters
  • Colonel Olaf Holzhauer, Director, Space Situational Awareness Centre, German Air Force
  • Jakub Cimoradsky, Officer, BMD Section, NATO
