At the same time, the US is redoubling its efforts to ensure its space capabilities will be resilient to survive and operate as the space domain becomes congested, contested and competitive. The 2nd annual MilSatCom USA will provide an intelligent forum to discuss and to explore ways to combat these rapidly developing threats through strategic operations and international collaborations.
