PSSI Fifth Space Security Conference: Evolution of the Counterspace Threat and Strengthening of International Space Partnerships

June 9-11, 2019 | Prague, Czech Republic

On June 9-11, 2019, PSSI Washington and the Prague Security Studies Institute (PSSI) will convene in Prague the fifth event in its Space Security Conference series. This year’s gathering, co-organized with the European Space Agency (ESA), the Japanese Prime Minister’s Office Cabinet Satellite Intelligence Center (CSICE), and the Secure World Foundation (SWF)  is entitled “Evolution of the Counterspace Threat and Strengthening of International Space Partnerships”. It will focus on the rapidly advancing threats to space operations and the role of space partnerships in addressing – and, hopefully, mitigating – this higher risk environment. It will examine the issue of space hybrid operations that span an increasing number of areas (including the commercial space sector), as well as the non-democratic model of space partnerships.

These events were co-organized with the European Space Agency, the Office of National Space Policy of the Japanese Prime Minister’s Cabinet Office, the Secure World Foundation (SWF) and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).
