Pivot to New Space Defense Architecture 

The upcoming MilSat Symposium 2023 aims to establish novel means of communication between national space defense and the industry. As outdated methods of contracting the creation of customized satellites, sensors, ground equipment, and software have become stagnant, it has become increasingly essential for the Department of Defense (DoD) and the industry to communicate openly. The MilSat Symposium strives to establish these new channels of communication by bringing together leaders from the commercial space industry and defense decision-makers.

Through sessions, keynote speeches, and technical discussions, influential experts will explore the most efficient and prompt solutions in developing and safeguarding crucial space assets. In addition to analyzing and discussing these solutions, the sessions will also scrutinize the financial, technical, and logistical challenges encountered by the Space Force, Space Command, and commercial suppliers. Discover how you can contribute most efficiently to a more adaptable and competent space defense community.
