A report from RUSI's 20th Missile Defence and Space Conference
RUSI held its 20th Missile Defence and Space Conference on 26 and 27 February 2020, at which issues around space as an operational domain were integrated into the programme for the first time. The immediate catalyst for this has been the proliferation of conventional threats to time-sensitive targets, the strains that these threats will place on traditional missile defence architectures, and the need to assess both the role of space-based assets and how developments in the space environment can put these assets, and the systems which are dependent upon them, at risk.
