Space: Implications for National Security

National Security College | Professional course

Summary

Space has serious implications for national security, given our dependence on satellites (and other space systems) to inform Defence and intelligence capabilities. Space-related systems are critical to climate observation, economic and transport systems, are dependent on cyber and therefore vulnerable to a wide array of threats such as attacks and jamming.

This two-day program improves participants’ awareness and understanding of the issues, risks and challenges for the national security community related to space through engagement with academics, private and public sector experts.

The program is designed for officers from all departments and agencies, as well as professionals, analysts and leaders from industry and other organisations who would benefit from a deeper understanding of the current state of space and the implications for national security decision and policy making. There is no minimum security clearance requirement.

Past presenters for this program include: Professor Brian Schmidt, WGCDR Tracy Douglas, Dr Brad Tucker, Dr Malcolm Davis and others.

“Brilliant program! Would definitely recommend to anyone in national security”.
