The CSIS Aerospace Security Project invites you to a panel discussion on current issues affecting Space Situational Awareness (SSA). With plans to launch thousands of new satellites over the next ten years, more than doubling the number of objects orbiting the Earth, SSA is becoming more critical than ever before. How can the United States improve its current SSA capabilities? How can the U.S. Government or private American companies lead by example for other space actors around the world?
