About DefSat 2023

The growing importance of space for both commercial and military purposes has also led to significant shifts in the geopolitical landscape, as countries seek to establish or strengthen their presence and influence in this domain. These developments have led to an increased focus on space capabilities and technologies, as nations look to enhance their military capabilities and protect their interests in space. This has resulted in a growing demand for space-based assets and technologies such as satellites, launch vehicles, and ground control systems, as well as an increased focus on space research and development.
With the traditional edge of existing space-faring nations being edged out by frequent and fast innovations, it is imperative to weave the cutting-edge of technology available in civil, commercial and military space domains in the application, operationalization and protection of military space capabilities.
