Recently, the 29 NATO heads of state declared space as the fifth domain of operations. Their joint announcement emphasised a step-change in alliance efforts to accelerate the development of space-based capability and underscored the threats that non-NATO activity poses to the resilience of our existing systems.

With NATO breaking new ground, Space Operations provides a unique forum for developing this newest warfighting domain. With sessions across three days, it will work to support efforts to improve access to and capability in space; offering industry an opportunity to share innovations in space command and control, situational awareness and launch service provision.

Alongside these sessions, the conference will work to enhance the delivery of effects from space, with case studies examining efforts to leverage satellite communications, geospatial intelligence and other assets as enablers – capable of supporting future joint operations.

Senior leaders briefing in 2020 will include:

  • Ms Monica Y. Manning, Deputy Chief Acquisition Officer, NASA
  • Major General Nicola Lanza de Cristofori, Commander, Joint Operations Headquarters
  • Flavio Giudice, Joint ISR, Space SME, NATO Communications and Information Agency
  • Andrew Ash, Space Situational Awareness - Project Technical Authority, Space & Sensing Systems Group, CIS Division, Dstl
  • General (Retd.) Philippe Steininger, Military Advisor to the President, CNES
  • Colonel Kyle Pomrey, Deputy Director, Combined Space Operations Center
  • Dr Jana Robinson, Space Security Policy Director, PSSI
  • Dr Carine Claeys, Head of Space Task Force, European External Action Service
