Military Space Situational Awareness 2019

01/04/2019 - 02/04/2019
London, United Kingdom

Space is becoming more congested, competitive and contested with thousands of small LEO satellites set to be put into orbit over the next decade. These assets offer the opportunity to provide un-dreamt of levels of connectivity - but have also cluttered space and debris is now posing a radical risk to other space assets.

With these important issues in mind, the 14th annual Military Space Situational Awareness conference will bring together key military, government, civilian and industry stakeholders to discuss technologies and strategies being utilised to build a greater understanding of where assets are, how they are moving and management of space assets at the end of their shelf life.

Event Highlights:

  • Hear from senior military and civil officials on the latest solutions being developed to enhance the security of space assets through domain awareness
  • Discuss key issues impacting space security including debris and weather
  • With the era of mega-constellations in LEO approaching, debate how best government and industry can manage further space congestion through policy implementation and best practices to ensure future sustainable space use
  • Discuss the benefits of allied cooperation of Space Situational Awareness (SSA) services and information to create a holistic approach to SSA and a more accurate global picture

Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness

03/04/2019 - 04/04/2019
London, UK

SMi proudly presents the next annual conference in the sell-out portfolio of Armoured Vehicle events: Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness 2019, taking place on the 3rd and 4th April 2019, in London.

For modern mechanised forces, the ability to act quickly, decisively and accurately is vital. Future land forces must prepare for high intensity conflict, where information superiority and surveillance capabilities may be challenged by an innovative enemy. To maintain a competitive edge, it is therefore imperative for our defence forces to intimately understand the capabilities available, to enhance both combat effectiveness and survivability of the vehicle.

Firmly established as the leading conference for armoured vehicle experts focused on C2, C4i, sensors and optronics, the 2019 event invites not only the programme managers, capability directors and operational commanders from the armed forces, but will also provide a perfect platform for both operational users and industry to share their experiences in the enhancement of situational awareness, information gathering and information sharing.

Key topics will include: Vetronics, Architectures, Sensor Integration, CIS and Battle Management.
