SMi Group reports: The UK Space Command and the UK Space Agency will be speaking at the Military Space Situational Awareness Conference, taking place in London this April.
Space debris is a global problem and the joint initiative announced earlier this year from the UK Space Agency’s National Space Technology Programme (NSTP) and Space, Surveillance and Tracking Programme (SST) will enable UK companies to mature technologies and early phase concepts to help tackle the issue including old satellites, spent rocket bodies and even tools dropped by astronauts.
With this in mind, the 17th Annual Military Space Situational Awareness Conference will discuss the UK’s future role in military SDA provision with keynote briefings from the UK Space Command and the UK Space Agency.
