Space Policy Masterclass

ASPI is delighted to invite you to attend this year's Space Policy Masterclass.

Space represents an important operational domain for the ADF in considering future military operations, and a critical environment for Australia as a nation to exploit in the 21st Century.

The establishment of the Australian Space Agency in July 2018, and Defence’s increasing focus on space as an operational domain make this an important masterclass to attend.

Participants will hear from a range of thought leaders working in space policy and security in this rapidly developing area.
