CHAIRMAN REMARK

We are delighted to announce the Future Forces Forum Space conference, taking place on the 17 October 2024 at PVA Prague. Welcome to our first Future Forces Space conference 2024. The Conference aims to bring together armed forces community, subject matter experts, industry, and academia stakeholders to address the main conceptual challenges of the role of space as a key domain in contemporary and future operations. The conference will address the main issue of operational and tactical context and operating environment which is characterized by complexity, instability, uncertainty, and pervasive operation. The concept of SPACE in NATO as a new domain refers to recognizing space as an operational domain alongside land, air, sea, and cyber. This acknowledgment underscores the importance of space-based capabilities for modern warfare, including satellite communications, navigation, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance. NATO aims to enhance its space capabilities to better support its missions, improve situational awareness, and ensure the security of allied nations' space assets. This involves developing policies, strategies, and technologies to effectively operate in and protect space assets within the framework of collective defense.
