Secure World Foundation sponsored SatSummit 2018, a conference on using satellite data for global development. SatSummit was a two-day event that convenes leaders in the satellite industry and experts in global development for in-depth conversations on solving the world's most critical development challenges with satellite data. From climate change to population growth to natural resource availability, earth observation data offers insights into today's biggest global issues.

SatSummit is committed to exploring the current state of satellite data capabilities and new systems. The second SatSummit explored the topics ranging from machine learning to automated monitoring to identifying specific opportunities for partnership and innovation. This event brings together a unique group of representatives from NGOs, nonprofits, government agencies, and industry representatives and includes keynotes, panel sessions, working groups, workshops, and evening social event at the Smithsonian Institution National Air and Space Museum.
