SpaceTech TU Graz presents:

Challenges and Monetization of Space Security and Situational Awareness

9th SpaceTech Symposium
Date: 23 July 2021
Location: ESA ESTEC, Noordwijk, the Netherlands: Physical and Online

Today security no longer has the connotations of just civil defence as it enters into every aspect of our daily lives. At the same time the environment of space is increasingly congested as its value and potential is further realised by constellations and activities.

Space Surveillance and situational awareness is used to protect international space infrastructure essential to modern living from communications to positioning and time.

The threats range from damage from other satellites or debris to Space weather effects and when the ingredient of counterspace & cyber threat are added is it clear that this is a domain that affects all our lives.

  • Cyber attacks via & on Space assets are increasing
  • Proximity operations on Space assets are now a reality and no longer fiction
  • Cost to market is falling and increased access to cheap of the shelf equipment
  • Global Space Situational Awareness (SSA) Market Worth USD 1,495 Million By 2027

SpaceTech TU Graz in collaboration with ESA and partners present the 9th SpaceTech symposium addressing the market response and providing an overview of the Space industry capabilities and solutions.

Drawing opinions and presentations from the leading players in the field from across the world in an open and frank environment.

According to Zion Market Research the global space situational awareness (SSA) market was USD 1,009 million in 2018 and is expected to reach approximately USD 1,495 million by 2027, at a CAGR of slightly above 4.6% between 2019 and 2027. Zion Market Research [1]

A UKSA Government study estimates that for the UK alone by 2040 the potential global market for LEO commercial SST conjunction warning services could be worth as much as $52.5m(£41.6m)6. [2]
