The event was organized by the Type-5 company, which was founded by Israelis from the space industry and whose offices operate from Israel and Switzerland. Among the speakers at the conference, Hila Hadad Hamelnik, former CEO of the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology, Uri Oron, Director of the Israel Space Agency, Ron Tomer, President of the Association of Manufacturers, Maya Glickman, CEO of Spacecialist, Dr. Jonathan Weintraub, CEO of Cryptosat, and many other speakers. The main theme of the conference was building a space economy and its contribution to Israel’s economy.

NASA recently announced that a special team will investigate reports of unidentified objects, but it is not the only one that takes seriously the possibility of life outside our planet. Creation could be a scientific theory that we haven’t discovered yet,” he says in an interview with Globes, Part of his Keynote at Space Tech Summit 2023, Hosted by TYPE5 VC.

Among the topics we discussed: cyber attacks in space and the challenges of the Israeli space technology industry. 

The 2nd Spacestack conference which opened May 22nd, was attended by very senior people from the space technology industry in Israel and around the world. At the conference, hosted by Dror Globerman,  some of the most advanced space technologies in the world were presented for the first time and he dealt with building the space economy and its growth engines for the Israeli economy. 

Lior Harman, the co-founder of TYPE5 VC Space Tech Group, which raises venture capital funds in the aerospace and space sector and who stands behind the conference, said at the beginning of his remarks: “The global space economy may reach a trillion dollars by the end of the decade. Today it generates about a quarter of a trillion (450 billion). Economy The Israeli space, on the other hand, contains a relatively small number of young companies (dozens), although the expectation is to reach the hundreds as the development and growth rate increases in the field from year to year.” 

This is certainly compared to the countries of the world.

“Quantum, cyber and unidentified objects in space”

This event has it all [GeekTime]

One of the most intriguing questions that has occupied humanity for decades is: are we alone in the universe? Over the years, various theories and evidence have accumulated, but no unequivocal answer has yet been found. This will also be the subject of the main speech (keynote) of the upcoming Spacestack conference, which will be delivered by the head of astronomy at Harvard University, Professor Avi Loeb. He will speak for the first time before an audience in Israel about the Galileo project – an international scientific study to systematically search for intelligence or technology, and to identify the nature of unidentified objects and unusual aerial phenomena (UAP’s), which may not originate from Earth.


The Galileo project uses multispectral (multi-frequency) photographic arrays combined with automations such as image processing, AI and the collection of big data telemetry data from unclassified civilian sources. The lecture will be broadcast live.


The Spacestack conference will be held for the second year on May 22 at Expo Tel Aviv (9:00-16:30). It will focus on building the space economy, estimated at a trillion dollars, and Space Nation as a growth engine for Earth. The event will be attended by speakers from Israel and the world, leading companies and organizations, including Bar Ilan University, the Ministry of Science, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Elbit, IAI, AWS, Deloitte, LIGO UAE and TYPE5 VC. The event will be moderated by Dror Gloverman and is intended for developers, entrepreneurs, private investors and venture capital funds, managers and marketing, technology and science professionals.

How does Israel integrate into the wave of deep technologies in space and on the ground? In preparation for the Spacestack conference

Since the term deep-tech was introduced in 2015, there has been an 83% jump in the number of start-ups in the fields of deep tech, according to a study by the Boston consulting group.

Most of the developments cataloged as Diptek have so far been developed in academic settings. However, in recent years, researchers, developers and venture capital investors are showing an appetite for complex and more far-reaching technologies that yield more than “more apps”.
