POC - 2023 Industrial Space Defense Summit

2023 Industrial Space Defense Summit | Potomac Officers Club



Space has gone through a myriad of consequential changes since mankind entered the domain, and today, it is not a benign environment. The commercialization and democratization of space has created a highly-competitive landscape that simultaneously drives innovation and poses significant risks to countries that cannot keep up.

The U.S. must develop and deploy innovative solutions at the speed of relevance to keep pace with adversaries, ensure the country’s space superiority, protect critical systems and maintain national security. 

Join the Potomac Officers Club’s 3rd Annual Industrial Space Defense Summit to hear government and industry space leaders discuss advancements in space defense technologies, the importance of building a viable industrial base in space and the critical role of public-private partnerships in the nation’s defenses across a volatile domain.
