In anticipation of the coming solar maximum in 2013, the Air Force (AF) has focused efforts to modernize and upgrade both space environment observing and prediction capabilities during the next five years in order to mitigate anticipated impacts to DoD operations. The AF Director of Weather will highlight space-based and ground-based collection improvements, as well as initiatives to enhance the Service's space environment prediction capabilities, in the context of key partnerships with other US Government agencies to bring these efforts to fruition.
