NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center—Meeting the Nation's evolving Needs for Space Weather Services
The rapid advances in the technology sector and our fast growing dependence on space-based systems have resulted in an ever-increasing vulnerability to hazardous space weather. The health of our Nation's technological infrastructure will depend heavily on our understanding of the space environment and our ability to predict space weather storms. The rapidly growing customer base requires that new products and services be developed to support the diverse user areas, including national security, emergency response, aviation, communications, global navigation satellite system (GNSS) applications, spacecraft operations, space exploration, and electric power grids.
The National Weather Service is addressing the accelerating growth in our space weather customer base by understanding and responding to the evolving needs and requirements of a global high-tech economy.
