Sustainability & Security of Space Infrastructure

When: Tuesday, June 6, 2023

to Wednesday, June 7, 2023

Where: Indo-Pacific Geointelligence Forum, Vivanta Dwarka, New Delhi, India

Space capabilities and data are increasingly important to geointelligence and other applications critical to IndoPacific security. However, continued provision of those space capabilities is at risk due to multiple space sustainability threats, including space debris and counterspace capabilities. This session will discuss why space sustainability and security matters, what the major threats to sustainability and security are, and how the geointelligence community can get involved in reducing the risk to make space safer, more predictable, and stable for all.

All times in India Standard Time.
