BAE Systems Digital Intelligence Roundtable
7th March 2024   |   12:30 - 13:30

What sovereign Space capabilities does the UK need and how can the sector come together to deliver these for both civil and defence?

Synopsis: As the only pan-global domain that sits across all aspects of society, space has a unique capability to tackle both civil and defence challenges. It’s dual-use application makes it ideally placed to support national security needs – for example tracking the movement of adversary armed forces in real time – while at the same time shaping responses to natural disasters such as floods or monitoring weather conditions. To deliver the capabilities required now and in the future, the space sector must align with government priorities, develop frameworks that enable us to exploit the rapid pace of technology development, and drive collaboration across the entire UK space ecosystem. Only by building on our existing strengths in areas such as digital innovation and communications will we be able to develop sovereign capabilities that deliver national advantage. Join our round table to discuss the key issues and define an action plan that can be used as reference by the UK.
