Alexandra Stickings, Space Strategy Lead at Frazer-Nash Consultancy, will be taking part in the panel discussion on ‘Space 2040’ at The Chief of the Air Staff’s Global Air Chief’s Conference 2021 on 14 July 2021.

Titled, ‘The Air and Space Force of 2040’, the one-day online conference, delivered by the Air & Space Power Association, will explore the strategic challenges facing the Royal Air Force and Whole Force partners. It aims to stimulate debate, share ideas and discuss both potential threats and opportunities, harnessing collective expertise to shape future forces.

Panel sessions will address some of the key considerations for air and space force chiefs, as they navigate how best to structure their domains and shape their capabilities and skills for the future.

Discussing the focus of her panel discussion, Alexandra said:

“Alongside Wing Commander Toby Steward, Anita Bernie of KISPE Space, Blake Bullock of Northrop Grumman and Air Vice-Marshal Paul Godfrey, I’ll be looking at the ‘Space Domain of 2040’. I will be providing an overview of what I think the space domain will look like in 2040 in terms of increased commercialisation, orbital congestion and debris tracking, developments in counterspace capabilities and the potential for norms of responsible behaviour, to understand the strategic context in which military space forces will need to operate.

“My fellow panellists will offer an outline of space system integration challenges, consider how industry is charting the future of space system developments, and look at how military structures are adapting to the growth of the sector.”

The discussion, which runs from 13:45 to 14:55 will conclude with a question-and-answer session. Visit to find out more.
