Announcing DSI’s 10th Annual Space Resiliency Summit –

National Harbor, MD, September 11, 2023 –(– Defense Strategies Institute is proud to announce the 10th Annual Space Resiliency Summit. This year’s Summit will bring together senior leaders from across the US space enterprise to discuss US efforts to ensure the resiliency of critical assets against both traditional and non-kinetic attacks.

Today, US forces and allies rely on a secure space infrastructure for communications, ballistic missile tracking, and other mission critical capabilities vital to national security. DoD’s push for resilience is part of a multifaceted strategy of “competitive endurance” to deter and combat adversaries. DSI’s Summit will provide a forum to engage in an open dialogue about current and future initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, and increase visibility within the larger community.

As part of the two-day event, DSI will convene a series of panels to bring together experts on the most important issues currently facing the space enterprise. Panelists will discuss the challenges, opportunities, and solutions for bolstering the cybersecurity of space architecture, as well as how to best increase Space Situational Awareness.
