The annual symposium kicks off the academic  year for the more than 500 students from all six branches of the U.S. armed services, civilian employees of the U.S. federal government, and international military officers from 44 different nations who attend NWC. 

Dr. Weeden was joined on the panel by Dr. Namrata Goswami, Mr. Doug Loverro, and it was moderated by Dr. David Burbach, who is a professor at NWC. The panel discussed how space security issues have evolved over the last decade, the prospects for conflict on Earth to extend into space, and the growing role of the commercial space sector in armed conflicts on Earth.
