The Washington Space Business Roundtable will be presenting US Space Command: Successes, Challenges and How the Commercial Space Industry Can Play Its Part in Advancing Its Critical Mission on Wednesday, February 17th, 2021, from 12:00 noon – 1:00 p.m., EST — the Keynote Speaker is General James H. Dickinson, Commander, U.S. Space Command.
This virtual event is sponsored by MAXAR, which means this presentation is free to attend, all thanks to the generosity of the sponsors.
U.S. Army General James Dickinson assumed the duties as Commander of the nation’s 11th unified combatant command, U.S. Space Command, on August 20, 2020, assuming command of USSPACECOM from U.S. Space Force Gen. John W. “Jay” Raymond, who had been dual-hatted as the Space Force Chief of Space Operations and commander of USSPACECOM.
General Dickinson’s career has encompassed an extraordinary range of assignments. WSBR is incredibly fortunate to have General Dickinson take time from his schedule to discuss his Command’s multi-dimensional mission and how industry can most effectively partner with his organization to advance our nation’s national security interests.
“Based on the Department of Defense alignment toward a space focus, we, as a nation, took bold steps toward protecting and defending our critical space capabilities by creating U.S. Space Command as a joint combatant command,” General Dickinson said. “Space is a warfighting domain, not because we want it to be, but because our adversaries have seen the advantages that space has provided to our way of life and our way of war and they continue to seek ways to hold our space assets at risk. Today, we stand postured and prepared to deter, and if necessary, defeat those threats.”
