SMi Group’s Military Space USA conference will be heavily focused on prototyping, requirement setting and procurement, highlighting programs like SMC 2.0 and AFRL’s innovation pitch days.

With space becoming a contested domain and near peer adversaries advancing in their capabilities, the need to ‘go fast’ has become accepted dogma within the space community.

As near peer adversaries advance their capabilities, the US DoD is pushing for the development of their own capabilities at EPIC SPEED. With 3 dedicated days of content, Military Space USA will convene in Los Angeles on June 8th – 10th 2020 to explore how the US and allies are driving this disruptive approach to space.
