AFCEA DC June Virtual Event
Space has become essential to our nation’s security and prosperity. Many defense and commercial activities depend on space-provided navigation, information, and communication. These investments in space capabilities increase the effectiveness of operations in every other domain and are essential to the DOD’s CJADC2 concept.
Meanwhile, Space Force released the organizational structure for its new Space Systems Command, which will rapidly identify, prototype, and field innovative, space-based solutions to deliver swift and responsive space capabilities to meet the demands of the National Defense Strategy. At the same time, Space Force officials want to develop a more resilient space architecture, one that is distributed and maneuverable, capable of supporting thousands of smaller satellites operating in low Earth orbit that can continue to operate if one or more are disabled or destroyed. Space Force has made significant advances over the past 16 months. Going forward, decision makers will address a myriad of issues ranging from support and protection of IT infrastructure, the impact of emerging technologies such as 5G on space-based networks and connectivity with ground networks, as well as the nurturing of a workforce and cultivation of a culture capable of supporting the warfighter of today and tomorrow.
Please join AFCEA DC for a virtual event on June 16, 2021 to hear Space Force and Air Force leaders, DoD decision makers, and technology experts discuss Space Force’s accomplishments to date and requirements needed to further integrate space capabilities across the warfighting domain.
