As the presence of ‘space actors’ from more than 200 countries continues to grow, international competition to assert interests in space is set to intensify. Against this backdrop, the UK government established a UK Space Command in 2021, to serve as a direct extension of national security. Air Vice-Marshal Paul Godfrey OBE currently serves as the inaugural commander.

At this in person breakfast briefing, AVM Paul Godfrey OBE discusses UK Space Command’s operations in the Space Domain. What were the key objectives behind the formation of UK Space Command? What role does Space play in UK defence? How is the UK increasing its capabilities within this evolving and complex strategic environment? And what are the opportunities for closer collaboration between international counterparts?

This event is only open to Chatham House Partners and Major Corporate Members as well as selected giving circles of Chatham House. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Linda Bedford
