Welcome to the Premier Space Defense & Security Summit ​

The inaugural Space Defense & Security Summit (SDSS) is launched in synergy with the leading global business space event, the World Space Business Week (WSBW) – 27th edition, to unite military and space defense actors.

Organized by Novaspace, Merger of Euroconsult and SpaceTec Partners, in collaboration with international defense and military entities, this summit will stand as a pivotal platform, bringing together global leaders from defense, security, and space sectors.

The event will take place at private Automobile Club de France, located on the prestigious Place de la Concorde – 7 minute -walk from the Westin Vendôme where will be hosted simultaneously the World Space Business Week.

New Space Security & Defense Perspective

This event will feature outstanding speakers and leading organizations representing the space and security community, covering major themes within the rapidly evolving landscape of this industry.

As space transforms into an operational domain for sovereignty, defense, and security, the contours of these realms are rapidly shifting. The increasing contestation in space necessitates diverse missions and resources, prompting the imperative need for new cooperation models and investments across technological and human domains.

Moreover, the evolution of commercial systems sparks a fundamental reconsideration of how defense space activities are organized. At SDSS, we will delve into these pressing matters, exploring strategies to navigate this dynamic environment.

Program Outline to Come Soon.
