Update: The 2020 Value of Space Summit has concluded. Read the summary here.
The Aerospace Corporation will co-host a two-day virtual summit with the Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center to discuss the importance of space critical infrastructure today and in the future. The Value of Space Summit on Oct. 15 and 16 will convene government, industry and international stakeholders to create a rich dialogue around the most pressing challenges and opportunities for the global space sector.
The summit agenda will be largely informed by the Center for Space Policy and Strategy’s recent Value of Space paper, which details present and future use cases for space infrastructure. Through colorful vignettes, the paper captures the immense breadth of satellite-enabled activities, from missile warning systems and natural disaster response to smarter farming and climate research.
“Aerospace is proud to be a founding member of Space ISAC and support its mission to bring the global space community together, to identify and respond to threats, and to provide timely, actionable information to the entire space sector,” said Ed Swallow, senior vice president for the Civil Systems Group at Aerospace. “Our partnership with Space ISAC is a natural extension of our own mission to leverage 60 years of experience and insight to shape the future of space in collaboration with all organizations involved.”
The Space ISAC was established in 2014 to facilitate collaboration across the global space industry to prepare for and respond to vulnerabilities, incidents, and threats and to disseminate timely and actionable information among member entities.
The Value of Space Summit will comprise two days of virtual discussions on the economic and societal role of space systems, as well as emerging threats to space assets and risk management approaches. Day 1 will include focused discussions about emerging threats to space, what space critical infrastructure needs protection and how other sectors are using space assets. The second day will focus on policies and legislation being pursued globally to secure the space mission and enterprise.
