Summary | POC - Space: Innovations, Programs & Policies Summit | Potomac Officers Club

WHAT

Join the Potomac Officers Club for the 2017 Space: Innovations, Programs, and Policies Summit to hear from industry leaders on the future of space warfare. A new Space Race is brewing and the United States is determined to retain its position as a dominant force in the space domain. Lawmakers and the Department of Defense are already looking to the future, with initiatives such as setting up the National Space Defense Center, debating the creation of a Space Corps operating under the Air Force, and creating a new position for a three-star general to serve as a space czar. Panel Discussion: Enabling policy, enabling technology and multi-domain operations—What must we do next to ensure we remain dominant in the space domain?
