overview

SAE Media Group are proud to present the 18th annual Military Space Situational Awareness Conference, taking place on 26th and 27th April 2023.

As the leading conference in Europe dedicated to space domain awareness, you can expect a focus on partnership and collaboration. With over 200 attendees, this event remains a “must-attend” for any professional working in space situational awareness. You’ll get real insight and genuine learning experiences giving you the tools to make immediate impact in your organisation.
 

What’s different this year?

Many of the recent developments in SSA are centred around the emergence of new LEO constellations and how military users must adapt their SSA approaches to account for this. Similarly, increasing interest in cislunar space present unique challenges for the industry, as does renewed great power competition.

2023’s Military Space Situational Awareness conference will address these issues head-on, with key focuses including space domain awareness, space surveillance and tracking (SST), the US Space Force's approach to SDA, the impact of new mega-constellations, and international partnerships in space.
 

Military Space Situational Awareness 2023 will continue to break the mould and create a platform that will give you detailed knowledge and vision into the latest developments. Hear key programme updates from across the world, including the UK, USA, Italy, Austria, France, Portugal, Belgium, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Finland and more.

The only event that will:

Be focused entirely on military and defence issues, including international collaboration, space debris, and domain awareness. You can expect dedicated sessions on threats, defence engagement with the emerging commercial SDA marketplace, space weather and technical research and more!
 

This year’s forum will bring you access to key stakeholders across military, government, and industry to discuss the future of the sector. Enjoy unparalleled networking opportunities with senior leaders in SSA.

National militaries:
• Military Space Operations specialists
• Equipment procurement officers
• SSA and SDA experts
• Space Tracking professionals

Industry:
• Businesses looking to break into the market
• Established players looking to expand their contacts
• Developers and innovators in military space technology

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SAE Media Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

    CPD Certificates

    We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@saemediagroup.com
